It takes a lot of dumb people to elect someone like that. I realize her district is pretty decrepit but I didn't realize Boston College had such low standards. She actually received a degree in economics from them? Too crazy.

Uh, little thing called 'massive tax breaks to the world's biggest corporation' might be the problem here. Jobs are some benefit - not high paying in Amazon's case - but when the community's paying THEM to locate there, that's not good.

Smart people know that.

Smart people know that leaders with a D after their name pushed for the community to pay THEM to locate there. Or will it be spun to be the fault of Trump, Bush or global warming?
