Comment of the Day: What's worse, tax hikes or forced child labor?


Our post about Eden Prairie GOP House candidate Sheila Kihne's controversial blogging features criticisms of her made by Rep. Pat Garofalo (R-Farmington), who has been putting Kihne on blast for supporting tax increases.

Garofalo cites Kihne's blog as a source. But in criticizing her on Twitter, he fails to mention the fact that on the same blog, Kihne openly supports forcing "any children 12 or over" who live in families that receive welfare to "have a job to contribute to the household income."

That observation prompted this comment from Joshua Kortbein:

Well, they do say backing tax increases is political poison for Republicans. Maybe it's even more poisonous than supporting forced child labor?
