Four of Andy's "moderates" are strong supporters of pro-family legislation

A recent Minnesota Monitor post by Andy Birkey states "Six moderates out, six conservatives in: GOP changes leadership in wake of override vote."

MFC's 2007 Legislative Scorecard (See "Legislative Issues" 2007 Legislative Scorecard) reveals that four of the six moderates were strong supporters of pro-family issues, scoring 81% or better. Two of the four moderates had 100% voting records.

Rep. Jim Abeler, R-Anoka scored 86% on pro-family legislation. He was replaced by Rep. Matt Dean, R-Dellwood with a 96%. Abeler and Dean voted differently on one issue - mental health screening for children.

Another moderate, Rep. Todd Hamilton, R-Mountain Lake scored 100% on pro-family legislation. Rep. Hamilton was replaced by Rep. Dean Urdahl with an identical 100% pro-family voting record.

Rep. Kathy Tingelstad, R-Andover scored a strong 81%. Tingelstad was replaced by Rep. Larry Howes, R-Walker with a score of 93%. Tingelstad and Howes voted differently on two issues - State funding of Interhational Baccalaureate and mental health screening for children.

Rep. Bud Heidgerken, R-Freeport scored a moderate 100%. He was replaced by Rep. Sondra Erickson, R-Princeton with the exact same 100% voting record.

There is a psychiatric / pharmaceutical plan to "suicide screen" every
child in the United States before they graduate from high school.
Evidence exists that shows massive pharmaceutical backing that will
result in even more overdrugging of kids with psychiatric drugs .
