Conrad Burns on the Issues

Shares

Let’s see…we’re at war, we still haven’t found Osama bin Laden, we have a skyrocketing national debt, our political institutions are riddled with corruption and graft, and there are deep flaws in our educational system. With that in mind, what does Conrad Burns consider to be the most important issues for the 2006 campaign?

It’s not hard at all to see which candidate is out of touch with Montana. While Jon Tester is talking about healthcare for working families, reducing the crippling burden of debt on future generations, and securing our nation, all Conrad Burns has to offer are transparent political manuevers and focusing on the plight of the elite wealthy.

Jason Klindt says, "Massachusetts doesn’t deserve a third senator." I say, "Jack Abramoff didn’t deserve one." Wouldn’t it be great to replace Burns with someone who thinks working families are more important than corporate lobbyists?

Burns is an embarrassment to the state. It’s time for him to go.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
