The Republican legislative delegation from Havre, while speaking with the public and the Havre Daily News over the legislative break, took the opportunity to clear their good names and prove wrong the Montanans across the state who have called their work “frivolous and unconstitutional bills that do nothing to create jobs.”
First, new GOP-TEA Representative Kris Hansen doesn’t let evidence get in the way of obvious truth when she publicly proclaimed that:
She said she gets hundreds, even thousands of e-mails each week attacking her for her votes and actions in Helena. She might get three or four telling her she is doing a good job.
Hanson was also quick to offer the proof that Republicans are fixing the economy and creating jobs, and took her opportunity in the spotlight to focus on what surely is one of the best bills of the session, a bill brought by her fellow Havre Republican, Wendy Warburton.
“I expect there area some of you out there who think we’re doing nothing for business since we got to Helena, and that’s not the truth, ” she said.
One of her examples was a bill that will allow landlords to not put carbon monoxide detectors in some of their units.
The Cowgirl Blog had earlier highlighted the bill here. The fine folks at Intelligent Discontent have already pointed out that the GOP has been unfairly picked on by the media, as Hansen, Warburton, and Hutton explain so clearly in their interview. Thank you Havre Republicans for clearing up the situation for the rest of us on the excellent work with which the GOP-controlled legislature is engaged.
