Letter: Majority leader is out of controlIt is my opinion that Republican House Majority Leader Al Carlson, R-Fargo, injured his head – not his foot – when he fell from the ladder last year. Does he think he is a king governing us and that the money in our state coffer is his to do as he thinks is right?
We can’t afford milk for the kids in school, but changed the wording so the diversion will be blocked and don’t approve taking the tax off of clothing, which would benefit all, especially those with lower income. Keep the tax on used items, which already have been taxed over and over again. He is sure to approve anything that will help out the rich, oil companies, corporations and his buddies.
Remember the money we wasted on the Sioux nickname? It is time that he and Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo, are voted out along with Rep. David Rust, R-Tioga. Should I go on and name a few more names?
Wake up, people! These legislators forget it is our money and not theirs. It is supposed to be for our benefit, not oil companies.
