Labrador: Dems ‘destroying our nation’

Among the comments so far at the Meridian Chamber of Commerce 1st CD candidate forum: GOP candidate Raul Labrador said, “The Democratic Party is destroying our nation.” He said “the worst thing we can do” is send Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick back for a second term.

Minnick, who like Labrador was responding to a question about how to reduce the federal deficit, said, “We’re going to have to do some things that are unpopular and Draconian. … There can’t be any sacred cows. … All options need to be left on the table. We must balance the federal budget. Send me back - it’ll be my No. 1 priority.”

Labrador’s comment on reducing the deficit: First extend the Bush tax cuts.
