No Budget, No Solutions, No Press Scrutiny
Earliest Pre-Election Recess Since 1960
In the latest Gallup Poll on the issue, 60% of Americans said they hadlittle to no faith that the media was fair and accurate in their reporting. In fact, only 31% of independents and 26% of Republicans thought the media tends to be fair and accurate.
t’s really no surprise. To listen to the media it sometimes seems that liberals have angel’s
wings and conservatives have horns. Worse, in some ways, is the fact that Democrats can sayand do the most outrageous things and not get called on it. Senate Majority Harry Reid canmake wild accusations from the floor of the Senate and be taken seriously, and the Presidentand his officials can deny for days that an obvious terrorist attack was anything but a
“spontaneous” demonstration having nothing to do with A
The Minnesota media too has failed to hold Amy Klobuchar accountable. Senator Klobuchar can
claim to be “bipartisan” despite a 94% voting record with her Democrat colleagues. She can
claim to be serious about the budget deficit by pointing to the Budget Control Act, a law whichthe President, Democrats, Republicans, the CBO, outside analysts, and the ratings agencies allbelieve would be a disaster if it is implemented. State economist Tom Stinson has said that if itgoes into effect, a serious recession will surely follow.
Senator Klobuchar has a record: the deciding vote on Obamacare; voting for spending whichhas nearly doubled the debt; voting for failed bailouts and stimulus programs; an economywhich collapsed on her watch; and an utter failure to pass a budget for 3 consecutive years.
Klobuchar and the Senate have left Washington having passed nothing of consequence, at thismost consequential time in US history. To campaign.
“It’s time to hold Washington politicians accountable. It’s time for the Minnesota media to hold
Klobuchar accountable. Perhaps even ask her an uncomfortable question or two, and not just
blindly accept her spin,” said Mike Osskopp, campaign manager for the Kurt Bills campaign.
