What a surprise. Time for the Dems to go it alone And why should the rich, and getting richer, not pay more? Collins is wretched like the rest of them.

GOP IS LITERALLY … D E S T R O Y I N G T H E U S A 😢me sad So, basically, she is saying socialism to benefit the gas and oil industry is just fine, but supporting the middle class worker is too much? They have profits in the billions using our natural resources and public spaces, but have no obligation to contribute to the common good?

So basically no deal. If they can’t find the balls to raise corporate taxes to 30% then why bother. The corporate welfare needs to end. CEO pay is obscene and profits are through the roof. Sen. COLLINS please stay true too Trump. God bless. Such a waste of space. What did we do to Maine? Sure. And I'm skinny

They only sensor Republicans! 🙄

BULL SH*T. GARLAND is NOT doing his job. Replace him now or we're all going down with the ship!!!

Stabenow on ‘Make it in America’ bill: “I want to make sure we are exporting our products and not our jobs”This week the Senate passed Senator Debbie Stabenow's 'Make It In America Act' as part of the historic 'U.S. Innovation and Competition Act'.
