Wyden and Merkley were 2 of only 6 US Democratic US Senators voting against the PACT ACT of 2015.
US House Member Kurt Schrader serving Oregon was 1 of only 18 Democratic US House Members voting against the PACT ACT of 2015, which played an instrumental role in charging up the anti-establishment movement and the rise of Donald Trump. Tillamook, Oregon does not just make great cheese. It is also represented by a wise and courageous US House member Schrader.
It should be interesting to see what these Company stock market prices will look like in the next four years during the Trump Presidency. I'll keep US Citizens informed by making many update posts continually over the next four years related to each Company's stock market price in each US State.
