If you remember back to the end of Mark Daytonâ€™s Senate term he gave himself a grade of â€œF.â€
Now Tim Walz has waded into the same territory.
In a recent article in the Mankato Free Press Walz admits his actions are â€œunacceptableâ€ and heâ€™s â€œnot going to defend it.â€
But on one issue, they agree. Demmer rips Walz and the Democrats in Washington for failing to even pass a budget outline for next year â€” the first time thatâ€™s happened since current budget rules were put in place in 1974.
The annual deficit is approaching $1.5 trillion and the overall federal debt is $13 trillion, and Democrats are looking to avoid any votes that highlight the mess until after November, Demmer said.
â€œI think itâ€™s just irresponsible,â€ he said.
â€œUnacceptable,â€ Walz agreed. â€œâ€¦ Theyâ€™re right, and Iâ€™m not going to defend it.â€
Walz has been voting with Nancy Pelosi on every important issue and now we are worse off than we were four years ago.
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES I GUESS.
