I still get a kick out of Munsterman posting comments on my site trying to win me over a few months ago, when he tried to tell me we agree on a lot of things, BAHAHAHAH. Then he pulls this spade;
We have to get a handle on unfunded mandates,” Munsterman said. “I believe that is a big portion of what is wrecking our budget.”
Medical expenditures cost the state $128 million in the most recent budget — 11 percent of the $1.1 billion budget. The federal government contributed $335 million toward South Dakota medical services.
Yeah, stab the working in the back, that’ll get you some votes.
SH: How did you vote on the issue of abortion in the 2006 and 2008 South Dakota election and why?
SM: I voted for Referred Law 6 in 2006, and Initiated Measure 11 in 2008. I will be the most pro life candidate running to be our new Governor. I have voted in favor of life in every election. I believe life begins at conception. I also believe in the adoption option as the real choice for Moms who cannot care for children. I’ve spent my life as a health provider to extend life not to end it.
SH: Do you support the Informed Consent law passed in 2005 and the South Dakota’s efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade?

VC: What are your views on legalizing marijuana?
SM: I’m not in favor of legalizing marijuana. It is not necessary and any efforts at legalization on a state level would contradict federal laws, causing a jurisdictional nightmare for law enforcement.
I guess we only want Judicial Nightmares when it comes to rape and child abuse victims. Hypocrite.
