LETTER: Questions about Bunn’s support of businessIn her Aug. 25 viewpoint, Rep. Julie Bunn, DFL-56A, Lake Elmo, continues to demonstrate her mastery of rhetoric, which however evades the reality of her experience.
In her Aug. 25 viewpoint, Rep. Julie Bunn, DFL-56A, Lake Elmo, continues to demonstrate her mastery of rhetoric, which however evades the reality of her experience. It is not adequate to talk about “commissions” and “experts” as though it were commensurate with beneficial governance. These “commissions” and “experts” seem to have had no effect when you read the news that one of Minnesota’s marquee companies, Medtronic, is experiencing a significant downturn which threatens to get worse.
Bunn argues for “balance” and for “both parties” to demonstrate “political courage” to produce “necessary reforms” In reality the necessary reforms are those that Bunn and her party deem necessary to prescribe. There is no balance. Balance is a euphemism her party employs when it doesn’t want to come out and tell citizens the reality is their program is a gradual creep into even more statism an usurption of freedoms by progressive formulas of governance. This is the epitome of ideology which Bunn contends does not drive her. The fact is her party on the national level is bankrupting our country and she will do the same to our beautiful state if reelected.
I ask the voters, is it honest for representatives to vote the way you really think and believe in non-election years (Taxpayer’s League of Minnesota rating of 20 in 2009) and then with the help of a majority of your party in the House to vote for appearance’s sake in an election year (Taxpayer’s League rating of 40 in 2010)?
I ask the voters to decide who is being honest and who is playing games.
