Commentary: No tax refund check? Thank Rep. John Kline.

By Wayne Cox
21 January 2013

ST. PAUL - Do you have plans for your March Social Security check or your tax refund? Better think about a Plan B. Come March, if Minnesota’s U. S. Rep. John Kline gets his way, those checks may not arrive.

Rep. Kline has joined forces with a radical band of Republican members of Congress, including Texas’ new Tea Party Sen. Ted Cruz, to halt the federal government from paying 40 percent of what it is required to pay come March.

If you are one of those who sent Rep. Kline to Washington with the hope of cutting government spending, you may want to call him up and tell him that didn’t mean your March tax refund check. And if you are a senior, be very, very careful walking on icy sidewalks. Come March, Medicare may not be paying for operations.

Good morning, Minnesota. The frontline of the Tea Party war on government has just reached your doorstep.

1. Just to clarify, the picture ISN'T of Nutbag John Kline or Nutbag Ted Cruz.

It's of Wayne Cox, the author of the article and executive director of Minnesota Citizens for Tax Justice.

I just didn't want Mr. Cox to be singled out on the street for any wayward rotten eggs or rotten tomatoes.
