New DFL website criticizes GOP lawmakers

I think Paul McCartney once sang: “You’d think that people would have had enough of silly websites.” Or something like that.
The Minnesota DFL doesn’t think so.

I think Paul McCartney once sang: “You’d think that people would have had enough of silly websites.” Or something like that.

The Minnesota DFL doesn’t think so. It’s launched a new website, GOP Distractions, to “highlight what the Republican majority in the state Legislature is choosing to focus on instead of creating jobs or producing a balanced budget.”

State DFL Chair Ken Martin said:

“We have 12 days left in this legislative session and the GOP still has not produced a balanced budget. But instead of working around the clock to do the job they asked for, the Republican majority is pushing through random policy tweaks and a divisive social agenda that simply will not make Minnesota better.

 “It’s all part of their relentless attempt to pull attention from the fact that the Republican budget is still $1.2 billion short and would raise taxes on hardworking middle-class families. But Minnesotans are smarter than that, and their distractions aren’t working.”

He said the site was launched because “there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for the distractions and Minnesotans deserve to know what the GOP is really up to.”

What’s next? Maybe a GOP site called DFL Dithering?
