Letter: ‘Progress’

Progress. That is what was promised and delivered by Representative Carolyn Laine and the DFL at the Capitol in St. Paul this past two years. What does progress look like? It looks like a fair budget, balanced without gimmicks.

Never before have I been this disappointed and disgusted with politics in general and more specifically, with my elected officials at both the Federal and State level! At what point did we allow them to represent their respective political parties in lieu of their constituents?
