I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

No Team Work Among MN House GOP

Representative Lanning (MN R) is a taxes committee member in the MN House and he hadn't heard of the one time tax rebate, wasn't aware of it, hadn't even received a copy ?!?!

Kind of makes you wonder just who in the GOP lead MN House is making decisions. Why bother with representation if only a handful (at best) are calling the shots. We knew that the House Republican leadership has refused to reach across partisan lines to House Democrats but apparently that now extends to their own party's elected officials. Even those that serve on boards that vet tax issues! Tell me this doesn't stink of a desperation to be re-elected....

“This is the first I’ve heard of it,” Lanning said after receiving a copy of the news release. “I’m not real happy about reading about this in an e-mail after it had been released,” he said. A one-time rebate “doesn’t solve anything,” he said. “I have some real questions about it myself”
