Money Issues? Now Hunoff and others whining about money! Why didn't the start 50/40/30/20/10 years ago looking at bringing in VIABLE industries with good jobs. Or recently all the EV plants/Chip plants being built--never made effort to secure one of those. Mrs. Hunhoff and GOP mafia---why not ask your two biggest money makers for more tax $$$$. You know Tourism/Agriculture--start milking more out of them? How about MANURE tax on feedlots? Tax the political fairy tales---you know they start with WHEN I AM ELECTED. Or tax the political donations at election time. Start with 50% maybe?

Do like every household budget/Business has to do. Cut Expenses. Freeze wages on top officials--maybe even roll their wages back 25%. Cut all the LBGTQ B.S. Cut these "entitlement" programs. How about a license fee on each "lobbyist"?

Say $150,000 a year. After all it not their money they throw around anyway. Come on GOP MAFIA--start to become the mighty leaders you claim to be.
