Pawlenty Vetoes Gas Tax Bill!

Lets rise up and applaud Governor Pawlenty! Now we must contact the RINO's and let them know that we will not stand for their rebellious behavior. We will recruit and endorse someone else to run for their seat this fall.

ST. PAUL - Gov. Tim Pawlenty rejected a $6.6 billion transportation funding package today as Democratic lawmakers look ahead to the vote that really matters: an attempt to overturn the governor's veto.
In his veto letter to House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, the governor wrote that "while there is broad consensus that the state needs to build on the record level of transportation funding we have provided over the past five years, this bill is an overreaching, massive tax increase that will further burden Minnesotans during already difficult economic times."

I cannot believe the Republican cross overs we have on this bill. I just talked to a Legislative Assistant for some Republican members of the House of Representatives, and she thought that it was almost guaranteed that the veto would be overridden.

In Minnesota, we are already over taxed and over regulated. One of the core values of our party platform is to lessen the tax burden on the citizens of our state.

Instead of these Benedict Arnold Conservatives standing for what they believed in, they sold their constituents, and their values, for a price.

I am ashamed of the above mentioned Republicans and we should do everything in our power to get rid of these sellouts and elect those who are not afraid to stand for our values.
