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?
- A gay marriage amendment that is so transparently political that it can’t even get a vote in the GOP controlled Senate?
- The critical flag burning amendment, opposed by 63% of Americans.
- The Paris Hilton estate tax, the repeal of which will cost cost $200 billion dollars in tax revenue between 2012-2021, despite impacting three out of 1000 estates.
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.
