It's a good thing that the Republican Party of Minnesota has put together a Solutions Center, since in a moment of incipient McFaddenism, Minnesota Minority Leader David Hann (R-Eden Prairie) can't answer questions about what his party would do if it still had control of the legislature.
The West Central Tribune's Linda Vanderwerf reports in Republicans said they could do a better job in Legislature:
. . .“A lot of things we’ve dealt with have been dealt with in a very partisan way,” said Hann. “With one-party rule, we’re getting a very ideologically driven agenda.”
Hann was not specific when asked what Republicans would change if they were still in charge. He did not answer a question about whether they would repeal a minimum wage law or roll back a plan to fund all day, every day kindergarten, both items the Legislature has adopted since the DFL took control. . .
If Bluestem recalls correctly, when Republicans controlled both chambers of the Minnesota Legislature from 2011-2012, they were totally non-ideological, what with that government shutdown in 2011 and those two constitutional amendments on the 2012 ballot that were designed to spur conservative voters to the polls.
Perhaps that's the sort of better job he means.
