Back during North Dakota’s regular legislative session we had a little feature on the blog called “RINO of the Week.” It’s where we pointed out legislators who had gotten a bit off track from conservative principles.
We here at SAB figured that the special session should be no different. So after a week of wrangling down in Bismarck, I hereby award the special session’s RINO of the Week award to…two people. Rep. Jim Kasper and Rep. George Keiser.
During the regular session the issue of a state-level health care exchanged, mandated by Obamacare, was sent to an interim study committee on which both of these men served. They produced bills to create the exchanges which would have bloated our state government by over 50 full time employees and cost tens of millions of state and federal tax dollars.
