Ray starts the segment with all of the Gubernatorial candidates that are running. Ray takes a call from a new listener and he brings up the tax relief and tax breaks that Ray was talking about in a previous segment and questioned him. Ray emphasized that he was quoting Reagan’s numbers. They also talk about Susan Collins promise of only “two terms”.
Ray had a caller this morning to talk about how society has lowered its standards and that is why we have the issues that we are having today. Ray agrees with him and then talks about how music, movies and video games have desensitized us from what is happening in today’s society.
Ray is still on a roll….he is back on to Medicaid Expansion and the effects it will have in the long run. Catholic Charities, Maine Equal Justice Partners and Maine People’s Alliance all want your money and if you don’t give it to them, you are a horrible and non-caring individual. This is the link that Ray used for his numbers for the Gross Domestic Product.
Fox News Radio’s Rachel Sutherland brings the latest on Sen. Al Franken accusations. She and Ray talk about the “me too” movement. Ray acknowledges that any woman that has this experience doesn’t ever get over it and Rachel has had a “me too” experience and believes that women can go on and live productive lives, she says that there are things that trigger those memories, but she has to continue her life. Sad situation that men and women have to be so “careful” as to not offend.
Fox News Radio’s offering is Jessica Jackson Sloan. She is a human rights attorney and co-founder of #cut50, a national bipartisan effort aimed at reducing America’s incarceration rate. Today she brings the story on Hillary Clinton. On Wednesday, she slammed what she described as the “politicization of the Justice Department” after reports that the Trump administration was considering a special counsel to probe the Uranium One deal and alleged conflicts with the Clinton Foundation. President Trump has criticized the uranium deal and suggested that Clinton, who served as U.S. secretary of state in the Obama administration, may be implicated in wrongdoing. But in an interview with Mother Jones, Clinton claimed that the Uranium One story has been “debunked” a number of times and that the Trump administration was merely using the story as a distraction.
Shawn Moody has announced a press conference for Tuesday at noon at Moody’s Collision in Gorham. Brent Littlefield announced Moody’s team for Governor and Shawn will make his own announcement at the press conference on Tuesday.
Ray must have had his Wheaties….he started in on the taxes and tax relief. Pres. Trump’s tax plan isn’t what he was looking/hoping for our country. Federal Government Spending is way out of control and people are cheering because there is a 3% growth in the economy.
