Bachmann continues to vote against Minnesota's interests

I like the press release, especially on the heels of the SC Times LTE that credited Elwyn Tinklenberg for his strong stances on sustainable energy. Note that a week after the campaign told the SD 19 crowd that the "website is under significant revision but will be revised tomorrow", still no discussion of issues...

ANOKA—Bob Olson, a DFL candidate in the 6th Congressional District, released the following statement regarding Michele Bachmann's vote against the Energy Independence and Security Act:

"This bill is far from perfect in my eyes, but it does begin to move us in the right direction by raising fuel efficiency standards and increasing production of ethanol and biofuels. Certainly anyone who has recently pumped gas at nearly $3 a gallon can get behind that.

"Michele Bachmann, however, made it clear that she's opposed to any reform. Rather than less pain at the pump and more investment in renewable energy we can produce right here in Minnesota, Mrs. Bachmann's answer is stay the course—more entanglements in the Middle East, more pollution, more of the same.

"While her supporters over at the Exxon Mobil PAC might be happy, Mrs. Bachmann's vote flies in the face of Minnesota values and is against the best interests of residents throughout the 6 th District."
