A political organization that backs DFL candidates is launching an advertsing campaign tied to the one-year anniversary of last summer's state government shutdown.
The Alliance for a Better Minnesota said today that it will run newspaper and online ads in targeted legislative districts. According to a news release, the ads will blame Republican legislators for causing the shutdown, which lasted 20 days.
"We must remember the extremism that caused legislative Republicans to reject fair compromises on the road to the state shutdown," wrote ABM executive director Carrie Lucking.
The newspaper ads will also feature the names of Minnesotans who have signed the organization's "No More Shutdowns" petition.
It takes 2 sides to compromise and the DFL Legislative leadership were confused by the Governor during the "negotiations."
Oddly enough, the REPUBLICAN proposal from just before the shutdown was the final "compromise." So why did the Governor shutdown the State? Why were things like State Parks and freeway rest stops shut down; both funded by means other that the State's General Budget? Actually, the rest stops were effectively closed BEFORE the actual shutdown by a couple of days! If you don't KNOW that the shutdown was PLANNED and implemented in the most visible, annoying means possible, you need to get your head out of the sand and I have some ocean front property in Montana to sell you!!!!
Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform
you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
