Listen Up Kline!

On Huffington Post Coleen Rowley gives Republican Congressman John Kline (R-MN2) a talking to regarding supporting war over bridges in Minnesota. It's an issue of priorities and values and leadership and helping Minnesotans.

It's not okay to build bridges in Iraq while Minnesota's bridges are falling down. It's not okay to provide more to private war contractors while not insuring Minnesota's childrens needs are being met at home. It's not right, it's not working, it's time to stop and set priorities. Listen up Kline !

What gives when Kline and company voted for a Republican crony's "Bridge to Nowhere" in Alaska just two years ago but refuse to vote now for a bridge to somewhere in Minnesota? Democratic freshman Congressman Tim Walz, although he seemed fairly exasperated, did a credible job of questioning this strange set of Republican priorities, especially their support for funding of bridges in Iraq while not supporting funding for bridges in their home state.
