To the editor:
For the first time since the Rudy Perpich era in Minnesota, there is no balance in government. Soon Mark Dayton and the new majority will show their legislative agenda that they dared not to tell voters about.
How did they win it all in Rice County?
We estimate that Education MN, SEIU (healthcare workers union), and the state DFL party spent over $250,000 just in October, just in Rice County.
Everyone saw the ugly mailers. Dozens of them. One day I received three DFL mailers attacking Mike Dudley. They cost the DFL $8,700 each.
Can you believe spending $25,000 one day in one state senate race?
David Bly had a flyer that said that last election he was outspent by the Republicans. Sometimes the most effective political lie is the bald face one. His own campaign expense report to the government showed Bly Wemerskirchen by 2 to 1. That is both the campaigns themselves and counting independent expenditures.
But, as the new socialists dream up what taxes to levy and how to spend it, remember that the pendulum will swing back. Bly will probably try to pass “Martycare” which is more socialist than Obamacare. They will overreach. But Al Franken and George Soros will smile along with their newly-bought union legislators.
Watch their new taxes. They will not, overall, be progressive. They will hit the rich, the poor and the remaining middle class.
