20 years enough for Rep. Peterson

I have had enough. Have you?

For the past 20 years, Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., has been a “full-time politician.”

Recently, it seems as if he is challenging the definition of “full time.”

Peterson’s vote was surprisingly absent when 39 fellow Democrats voted to stay in session to address the issue of tax cuts. Instead, because of Peterson’s insistence for a personal vacation, we can look forward to a massive tax hike next year.

I could hardly believe that Peterson would vote “yes” on cap and trade. People of the 7th were loud and clear that it would not be good for our economy. Does Peterson forget who he represents? I say, yes, he has forgotten his roots.

While he bills himself as a moderate Democrat, even calling himself a conservative, he completely ignores the voices of the hard-working citizens of the 7th Congressional District of Minnesota and votes with the Democrat House leadership. It is time for Peterson to be retired.

Let’s elect someone who will listen to us, the concerned citizens of Minnesota’s 7th District.

Vote Lee Byberg on Nov. 2.
