From MN House Minority Leader Paul Thissen...
While Republicans in the Minnesota legislature tried to hide their proposed budget by debating in the middle of the night, it is so full of misplaced priorities that even the darkness of night cannot hide what a giant step backwards this budget would be for our state.
Even after six hour, eight hour - even fourteen hour - debates on these proposals, your House DFLers were still fighting for you. We stood up on the House floor and told the truth about the Republican budget, and we made it clear whose side we're on. Take a few moments and watch your House DFLers stand up for you on the House floor:
As we did during these debates, these representatives and all of our 62 members will continue to stand up for middle class Minnesotans and hold the Republicans accountable for what they're attempting to do to our state. But we cannot keep fighting without your help. We need Democrats across Minnesota to stand together to fight against a a Republican budget that asks hard working middle class families and our most vulnerable citizens to once again to bear the entire responsibility in closing the largest deficit in our state's history.
Can you stand with the House DFL by making a contribution of any amount today?
The Republican budget barrage is continuing and the best way to stop the Republicans is to start building to a DFL Majority in 2012 - today. I hope we can count on your continued support.
P.S. Help us hold Republicans accountable for hiding their slash-and-burn budget under the dark of night. Contribute today.
