Fact-checking the Pi-Press

This article in the Pi-Press is disgusting in its dishonesty. In the article, the ‘reporter’ says that “Trump’s highly controversial order suspends refugee admissions for 120 days and bars all immigration for 90 days of citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries with terrorism concerns: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Those now being barred from […]

MNsure caught wasting time

This article highlights the dysfunction of MNsure. While it isn’t surprising, it’s still aggravating. The story starts by saying “Rep. Roz Peterson, R-Lakeville, said at a Monday news conference that a constituent had contacted her after receiving a voter registration form from MNsure, the state-run health insurance exchange, even though the person in question is […]

Atkins: O’Driscoll’s editorial misleading

Joe Atkins, one of the co-chairs of the MNsure Legislative Oversight Committee, insists that Tim O’Driscoll’s editorial was misleading. Actually, it’s Atkins’ editorial that’s misleading: Republican Rep. Tim O’Driscoll’s recent op-ed (“Insurance premiums are going up,” Oct. 12) was very misleading and continues the practice of attacking MNsure, celebrating technical problems and distorting the facts […]

Highlighting the DFL’s misplaced priorities

Tim Pugmire’s article on the Senate Office Building highlights the DFL’s misplaced priorities and the DFL’s campaign year spin: A recent KSTP poll found the public disapproval of the building at 68 percent. The four Republicans trying to unseat Dayton are making it a campaign issue, and so are their allies. The group Americans for […]

Another MNsure failure

Saying that MNsure is an expensive failure is understatement. Here’s another example of how MNsure continues to be an expensive failure: St. Paul- The Minnesota House of Representatives passed an ObamaCare bailout bill (HF 3172) Thursday by a vote of 70 to 59. In 2013, Governor Mark Dayton and Democrat lawmakers passed a budget that […]

Walz’s, Smith’s spin dizzying

Tim Walz knows how to play the DC spin game. This article is proof of that: At the U.S. Capitol, Walz said, “there’s not democracy.” Instead, “there’s just a speaker who holds a gavel.” The only legislation that can get voted on is that which the House speaker allows. The reason Tim Walz is in […]

DFL chanting points target Fox, TEA Party

If Republicans want to know what they should expect during the upcoming campaign season, they don’t have to look further than this deceitful DFL LTE. It’s stunning that an LTE didn’t get a single major point right. Check this out: It promulgated the debunked claim that the Internal Revenue Service targeted tea party groups. Even […]

Agreeing — and disagreeing — with Sen. Durbin

In a single paragraph, I find justification to agree with Sen. Durbin — and find justification to disagree with Sen. Durbin. This article provides us with Sen. Durbin’s quotes: Democrats see the approach, which focuses on oversight hearings, as a not-so-veiled attempt to undermine the Affordable Care Act. “They hate this law,” Sen. Dick Durbin […] . . . → Read More: Agreeing — and disagreeing — with Sen. Durbin . . . → Read More: Agreeing — and disagreeing — with Sen. Durbin

Harry Reid’s latest temper tantrum

Lately, Harry Reid has thrown one temper tantrum after another. This morning, he threw another childish, mean-spirited hissy fit: “Republicans have had a very bad week. On the same day that Democrats in Congress delivered quality, affordable health insurance to tens of millions more Americans, Republicans in Congress delivered the nation a government shutdown.” “It’s […] . . . → Read More: Harry Reid’s latest temper tantrum . . . → Read More: Harry Reid’s latest temper tantrum
