Hodges vows to close gaps

Dec 25, 2013 Full story: Insight News 6

When Betsy Hodges emerged the victor of an absurdly crowded field in the contest to become Minneapolis' next mayor, she said it sent a clear message that the city would no longer be divided.

From the Insight News article:“I want to grow Minneapolis and I want to close the gaps between white people and people of color,” said Hodges, who takes office Jan. 2.“I want to close the gap between the haves and the have nots.

Really? Isn’t that the same message delivered by one Barack Hussein Obama in 2008? And how is that working out for every one?

The country is more racially, economically, and politically divided today than it has been since at any time in the last 13 years.

These Lib mouthpieces spew rhetoric about wanting everyone to prosper, and then tax the hell out of the middle class working families and protect their uber rich friends who live off their trust funds – as Gov GoogleyEyes has done to the working families in MN.

Mayor Hodges says her goal is to add 107,000 residents in her first term in office. I believe that goal is attainable. Too bad it will be 107,000 new welfare recipients rather than 107,000 new tax payers.

Bye-bye to more middle class working families who will continue to leave Minneapolis in droves for the outer ring suburbs if they can afford it.

Why do you hate Jews? Bad experience with a mohel? Did the Rabbi take a little too much off the top?
