Smash And Grab
The rich people that fund our politicians got their tax cuts, and deregulation, why stay in office and get yelled at all the time by people who hate you when you can just retire and get your bribe from whoever paid you to vote that way in the first place. Expect a bunch of other republicans to “retire” this year.
edit: Now that I think about it, expect a bunch of corporate democrats to try and make a run this year touting how they are going to be so much different than the republicans they are replacing…be sure to do your homework before voting for just anyone.
