Backing the 1 percenters

Backing the 1 percenters

Well, well, well, this week our Repuglicans (my word spelling on purpose) in this area again voted for the benefit of the 1 percenters. Sens. Gazelka and Carlson and Reps. LeMieur and Howes again shafted the 99 percenters, those on the lower economic ladders of life, with higher property taxes, income taxes, etc.

These GOP’s (Grand Oppressive Party) again spent more time on unneeded social issues (constitutional amendments) than on the real issues that relate to jobs for average families. Keep it up, Repugs, you will get your resounding out-of-office vote in November.

Our Repuglican paper will hate to publish this letter and others that go against the real political agenda of the Brainerd Dispatch. Some have suggested using the boycott method to retaliate. I’m seriously thinking about it. Thank goodness, Rep. John Ward and our Gov. Dayton try their darnedest to help the 99 percenters.
