Predictable liberal-leaning questions dominated the night at the forum here at Woodbury City Hall Oct 9.
Democrats, once again, proved that they have no new ideas! A writer visiting a similar forum held recently describes the political split: “The solutions to the problems…could not be more different and they are right down party lines. The contrast was even more clear when it came to growing the economy and creating jobs”. Read more here: http://www.exposethetruth.info/

Tweets from League of Women Voters forum – Tues., Oct 9, 2012
Packed house for LOWV forum in Woodbury.
Voter ID question first, split along party lines. You want to know what's pretty awesome? Senator @TedLillie quoting Pres. Jimmy Carter in support of Voter ID amendment.
@andreakieffer56 impressive answer on health care!!!
A lot of ppl in the audience nodding in agreement w/ Sen @TedLillie's response on taxation. Put people back to work to avoid raising taxes.
Right to work question, #Sen Lillie pointing out the low unemployment in RTW states.
Democrats have no new ideas! #mngop
The questions covered: Voter ID, How to avoid shutdowns, do you support a state run Health insurance exchange, MN tax is regressive - what is your tax philosophy, Union membership - Dayton veto of Right to Work, marriage amendment and education funding/spending shifts.
You might say, well how is that progressive? Sadly, there were very few questions about the economy and how to improve it for our families and young people. The Right to Work question started out focusing on union membership.
The Democrats always praise the merits of unions. Republicans have no problem with unions, they simply believe in giving employees the “choice” to join them.
Rep. Kieffer made a great point of distinguishing between private and public sector unions and pointed out that many constituent union members are not happy that their union financially supports political views that are not their own. Again, citizens should have a choice as to what political views their money supports.
But the real tragedy here is that getting our economy back on track seems to be of little importance to the progressives. I wonder if Minnesota’s citizens would agree?
