Congratulations, Governor Pawlenty!

Congratulations to Governor Pawlenty, and Rep. Marty Siefert.  The veto pen has slain the dragon of limitless government growth, with the help of united GOP opposition in the Minnesota House.

The Governor has the authority through the line item veto and un-allotment to do what the legislature has failed to do.  Being the adult in the room takes a stiff spine, and Gov. Pawlenty will take some abuse over his decisions, no matter what he decides to cut.

I commend him for his courage.

Let's take this opportunity to praise and support our elected officials - Governor Pawlenty, Marty Siefert, and all the other legislators who stood together to impose some discipline on state government.
