When President Obama took office in 2009, he inherited an economic catastrophe from the former Republican administration. Now we’re told by President Trump that the United States is in the midst of an economic boom. However, that boom is built on a raging deficit approaching over a trillion dollars, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
On March 3, Maine Democrats will have the opportunity to vote for their candidate to become the party nominee for president. This election stands out as the most important in my lifetime. Will we elect a president who will uphold the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law as well as establish a sound economy that will meet the needs of all, not just a privileged minority?
We’re fortunate to have many gifted Democratic candidates who understand a constitutional pledge and the law. I’m supporting Elizabeth Warren because she has the knowledge, skills, plans, determination and integrity to guide our nation and citizens on a path to an equitable economy, scientific environmental policies and sufficient social supports for all citizens to succeed.
