Kentuckians realizing McConnell friend to corporations, not voters

By LINWOOD HARDY Cadiz

EDITOR:

Mitch McConnell was so happy with the Supreme Court's new ruling. The one that enables people to give any amount of money to elect their favorite candidates. That was such great news for Mitch, since billionaires want help to keep more and more of their money and Mitch in the Senate can keep on making it easy for them to pile up their untaxed and low-taxed riches, like he has helped them do ever since he has been in office.

Some people say that McConnell asked for the help of the two most right-wing judges on the Supreme Court and got his wish. Why would he not ask? He was the most powerful Republican in the Senate and worked so well with George W. Bush when George W. appointed these two Supreme Court justices to protect the Republicans on every angle.

Also Mitch has been "scared as all get out" of Alison Grimes. So he believes he is safe now that he can call in as much money as he thinks he will need to win a sixth term.

He still has a problem though. Kentuckians have begun to wake up and see that Mitch has not voted for them, but voted for big rich corporations. Voters have begun to realize that votes can trump big money when the people stick together and vote for Grimes.
