Forty progressives rally against GOP tax bill
Updated. Forty Flathead progressives rallied yesterday in Kalispell, protesting the Republican tax cuts for the rich legislation that’s moving through Congress at the speed of a terrorist’s truck. A few more progressives met with representatives of Sen. Steve Daines in his office a half block east of the rally.
These activities boost the spirits of progressives, but have no effect on Daines. Progressives should continue making themselves visible and audible, but to prevail they must run for office themselves and help elect Democrats (the Flathead’s Democrats need a strong candidate to challenge GOP Rep. Frank Garner in HD-7, a district that Democrats have won and can win again).
