Rep. Paul Marquardt’s diatribe is mostly deceptive, if not downright dishonest:
During the campaign, Knoblach and his Republican allies committed to fixing our state’s crumbling roads and bridges. But new House Speaker Kurt Daudt already has admitted that Republicans “may not be able to solve this on the long-term basis.” And the so-called plan Republicans offered certainly isn’t a fix. It’s not even a bandage!
First, the House Republicans’ so-called plan isn’t their final plan. The thing that Rep. Marquardt is criticizing is a partial plan of what Republicans intend to do. Think of it as the opening position in negotiations with the DFL on a final transportation bill.
