Well, Pawlenty has vetoed the Municipal Health Benefits bill. Wouldn't it be nice if the DFL had the nuts to just keep putting it back in bill after bill until Pawlenty shuts down the government over it. I think it would be a smart move for the DFL because it would make Pawlenty and the Republicans responsible for throwing the state into chaos in order to force their extremist agenda. A clear majority of people in the state support equal benefits and this mild measure, so Pawlenty's the one that would suffer for pushing the issue to the hilt. And, if he backs down, we not only win the issue but it weakens him and the right wing.
This is a golden opportunity for the DFL to marginalize the Republicans for a long time to come.
