Letter: Calling out a Congressional lie

Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Many decades ago in a school playground in the mid-west, if you wanted to share a most solemn secret, you asked for a childhood vow..."I'll tell you if you say - Cross my heart and hope to die.” It was a strange memory that surfaced while watching a news report on the congressional tax-cut plan. Somehow, I would like to stand before each senator as they cast their vote and ask if they really believed that the plan would benefit those Americans who are less powerful than the wealthy and corporations with their shareholders. "Cross my heart and hope to die."
