I walked out to the mailbox two weeks ago, and there it was - a big ol' (12 x 8 1/2 inch!), full color mailer marked "PUBLIC DOCUMENT -- OFFICIAL BUSINESS -- This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense." It was, of course, from career politician Erik Paulsen.
And what was so important in that "PUBLIC DOCUMENT -- OFFICIAL BUSINESS" that career politician Erik Paulsen wanted to share - at taxpayer expense? "A tidal wave of spending and debt is upon us" Well, that "tidal wave of spending" is fueled by Postage Stamp Paulsen's wasteful
abuse "use" of the Congressional Frank.
Yesterday I walked out to the mail box, and there was ANOTHER full color mailer marked "PUBLIC DOCUMENT -- OFFICIAL BUSINESS -- This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense" - sent from (you guessed it!) career politician Erik Paulsen - let's look!
WOW!!! there, on the front: "A Report from Congressman ERIK PAULSEN"!!!
What was so special, that "Congressman ERIK PAULSEN" wanted to report to yours truly (and my nighbors) at taxpayer expense? Let's look!!!
"Recently, I visited Cedar Ridge Elementary, and had the chance to meet with students in Mr. Terwillger's 1st grade class. I enjoyed spending time with students of the class and reading the book House mouse, Senate mouse."
STOP THE PRESSES! ALERT THE MEDIA!!!
Career politician Erik Paulsen read a book with a 1st grade class, and thinks that's a worthy enough event to be worthy of "A Report from Congressman ERIK PAULSEN" to send to taxpayers - at taxpayer expense.
It's time to send career politician Erik Paulsen to the private sector, where he won't be able to waste taxpayer money, any more.
