Letter: Franken knows difference between satiricist and senatorWhile we can argue about jokes or satire what we need are individuals supporting policies and change for middle class families like (Julie) Bunn and (Al) Franken.
While we can argue about jokes or satire what we need are individuals supporting policies and change for middle class families like (Julie) Bunn and (Al) Franken.
Franken will work to end domestic violence and for policies which are supportive of women and families.
Unlike Norm Coleman who voted against protecting individuals forced into bankruptcy because they did not receive child support or alimony payments.
Franken and Bunn will focus on the bread and butter issues affecting families in Minnesota.
Unlike Norm Coleman who voted against child tax credits for all families regardless of income.
Minnesota needs Al Franken in the U.S. Senate to stand and fight with (Amy) Klobuchar at the federal level for the working people of Minnesota.
Unlike Norm Coleman, whose string of votes for tax cuts for the wealthy and against tax credits for the middle class are a resounding embarrassment to our state and the legacy of Paul Wellstone.
Coleman didn’t minimize the tax burden on the vast majority of Minnesota families when he voted for tax cuts for the top one percent of incomes nationally.
Al Franken knows the difference between a hand up and a handout and will advocate for and support policies that benefit the many and not the wealthy few.
His support for policies that are fiscally focused on the vast majority of middle class Minnesota families statewide will be far more impactful long term than a single monetary donation to benefit Minnesota coalition against sexual assault.
When it comes to Midwestern values giving a hand up to families struggling to take of the elderly, pay their bills and feed their families is a core value.
That’s the change Al Franken will work for and we can believe in.
