DIXFIELD — U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin, R-Maine, told officials and workers during his first tour of the Irving Forest Products mill Tuesday afternoon that he needs to understand their issues and how to help them.
"It's all about jobs and how do we help you guys with taxes, regulations, management costs, etc.?" Poliquin said.
The confirmed reports of the Obama Administration’s covert payment of cash ransoms in exchange for American hostages are an abomination. This kind of action by the Executive Branch is reckless and puts more Americans at risk around the world. This should be alarming to everyone, most especially our federal government’s senior officials.
Over the past seven years, we have seen how this Administration’s foreign policy has made Americans less safe at home and overseas.
Our State is home to more than 107,000 seniors and more than 126,000 veterans. Our seniors and our veterans have been promised benefits and support after their careers in the workforce and service to our country. I believe it is absolutely critical that those promises are fulfilled.
Serving our Veterans should be a commonsense goal for each and every one of our public officials. Our Veterans have served and sacrificed for our Nation—their care and our Nation’s highest respect for them should be unquestioned priorities for all those in government at all levels.
First and foremost, let me be clear: I do not believe in discrimination — period. It’s wrong, hurtful, and against the law. There is no place for discrimination in Maine or in America. We should stamp it out wherever and whenever it rears its ugly head.
Everyone who knows me understands that I embrace and respect everyone. That’s how I live my life. That’s how I raised my son.
The 21st Century ushered in striking technological improvements that have enhanced and changed so many parts of our lives. Technological advancements in the past half-century have allowed for greater collaboration, communication and connectivity across all aspects of life.
The IRS should work for Maine taxpayers—not the other way around.
This year’s tax season served as a reminder of the dysfunction at the IRS. Last year alone, the agency failed to answer eight million calls from Americans looking for answers.
Through the years, international trade deals have hurt many workers and families in Maine's 2nd Congressional District and also the businesses that employ them.
Made in America. Those words mean a lot to American workers. Those words mean that a hardworking American family is earning a paycheck. Those words mean that a business, right here in America, is choosing to employ American citizens rather than export jobs overseas. Those words mean quality.
