Metzen has been benched

By Bill Jungbauer

I had the pleasure of listening to Governor Pawlenty speak yesterday at the 4th Congressional District Republican Convention. He is a polished and articulate speaker and fun to listen to. While he was expressing his views on the current budget bill that is filled with tax increases and other bazaar item such as giving fifty, and one hundred dollar gift cards to the poor to encourage them to get medical check ups and immunizations. One of my least favorite is giving tuition breaks to illegal immigrants.

Our Governor talked about the increase in income tax to the wealthiest among us. These hikes would make Minnesota number one in the nation for income taxes. He mentioned that 70% of job growth in our nation is from small and mid-size businesses. What amused me was when he mentioned that he plays hockey. Now just a little slower. Now he has to stop playing forward and start to play goalie and stop the tax hike bills from becoming law. So what that means to me is that while our Governer Tim Pawlenty is in the net, Senator Jim Metzen has to sit it out on the bench. There's a new goalie in town. His name is Governor Pawlenty.
