Share the pain

For a while I thought I was living in another state, maybe Missouri because of the non-winter we have had. Then I read the Jan. 27 paper and I thought I was living in another country, maybe Russia, or somewhere in the Middle East.

Sen. Gazelka, please help me understand how the new Senate budget that cut DFL staff members from 43 to 29 but did not cut any staff members from the Republican staff (total 75) allows for fair and equal representation?

All of us should share in the pain of budget cuts, including the Republicans. And yes, even you, senator.
