A champion for the middle class? I am firmly in the middle class with 2 kids going to college. How is increasing the interest rate on student loans going to help me? I guess my kids could work for a "job creator" instead with no benefits and little chance of promotion and live a low to middle class lifestyle while supporting those job creators lifestyles.

Evidently support for Zellers is based on his ability to misrepresent the truth (in other words, he lied). His supporters can't even come up with anything to support a $2.5 Million dollar surplus (based on my typo) much less his actual claim of $2.5 Billion.

Great questions SEL!

According to the article he said $2.5 billion with a "B" and I heard him repeat that claim on the radio. I could maybe swallow a claim of $2.5 million, but billions?? Come on!

Questions I'd like Mr. Zellers to answer are, as a result of the GOP budget: How much did the average property tax burden in rural communities increase?

What was the cost of debt service for the schools?

How many public safety employees lost their jobs in small towns?

How many infrastructure improvement projects were cancelled or delayed?

I hope the 3 (as I add my comment) who disagree with SEL would kindly offer some form of evidence to support Mr. Zellers claim of Republicans generating a $2.5 million dollar surplus. Any takers?

Talk about "fuzzy math"! Where in the world did he come up with a whopper like the state having a $2.5 billion surplus??
