Sen. Steve Daines is greasing the skids to further stick it to the middle class with a massive tax cut for the rich that will hollow out our government. Daines recently went on television to tout how we have to pass Trump's tax plan, a massive tax cut for the richest Americans and tax increases for the working class. Daines qualifies as a part of the richest Americans.

The result will be increased costs for the middle class. Tuition will go up in public universities. Local property taxes will have to be raised for schools, roads and bridges. And state taxes will inevitably have to rise also. Then the senator can claim that government isn’t doing a good enough job during his endless campaign season.

What’s the end game of another round of trickle-down economics? Daines and his friends in Washington will come looking to sell our public lands in measures guised as a way to pay down the national debt. What a joke. We’re not falling for it, and Montanans had better not fall again for Daines when he’s up for re-election. He quickly became a creature of Washington and ignores the people who sent him there. Senator Daines, you and your narrow ideology are as phony as your invalid claims you make on many subjects.
