I'm committed to making sure that all of the people in rural Minnesota who deserve refunds for their property taxes receive them.

After the attacks of 9/11, I agree the right thing to do was go after Bin Laden. My question is, where is Bin Laden? How come he hasn't been captured? To throw us off, our president sends troops to Iraq to be killed and wounded -- over 2,300 of our troops have died. Over 10,000 have been injured.
