Minnesota deserves lawmakers with a clue

The Mankato Free Press

---- — Our senators, Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken were part of a group to vote for and pass Obamacare. You know the overwhelming law that the Democratic leadership (Reid and Pelosi) said you’ll have to pass it to find out what’s in it.

Exactly what they did and then got a bit of buyer remorse when they find out that the law included taxes on medical devices. So Franken and Klobuchar lead a charge to repeal these taxes because they would hurt device manufacturing business (especially in Minnesota).

You’d think there was a lesson to be learned there. But now they vote for taxes on online business.

I guess they don’t think Minnesota businesses will be hurt.

In my humble opinion, we have clueless senators and the citizens of Minnesota and this country deserve better.
