Your letters: Throw the bums out!
The people of Minnesota elected a Republican House and Senate to rein in spending and cut taxes. The people of Minnesota elected a Democratic governor that indicated that he would raise taxes on the wealthiest people in Minnesota as part of his solution. A solution is somewhere between: you raise taxes and cut spending.
The extremist ideology by Senator Hoffman or Representative Murdock should not be on the table. Negotiations means that both sides get less than they want. Our elected representatives failed! Our elected representatives put people out of work. To criticize/blame the other side is not helpful and immature. Throw the bums out of office!
