Elect representatives who do less

As I was researching what our state legislators have done the last two years, I was shocked to see our legislators introduced 4,396 bills in the 2009-2010 regular sessions. Can anyone explain how our state senators and representatives can propose that many bills and not find a solution to eliminate a $6 billion state deficit?

It is even more surprising they could not balance the budget when 87 Democrats vs. 47 Republicans control the House; in the Senate, it is 46 Democrats to 21 Republicans.  With both houses of our state legislature controlled by the Democrats, I think if they had spent a little less time writing 4,396 bills for who knows whom they could have balanced the budget.

Isn’t it time to elect new senators and representatives who will work to establish a budget that does not continually raise our taxes and one that will encourage new businesses to come to Minnesota to provide good employment for the people of Minnesota?
