The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Shantel Krebs: Sacrifice begins at home

Rep. Shantel Krebs (R) Renner, put HER money where her mouth is in a measure calling for a significant reduction in travel and compensation for our Legislators. The War College has the release here. (Hey, Rep. Krebs, put the Decorum Forum on your mailing list. Putter, Haverly and Kirkeby have my e-mail address.)

Look, I know it's not a bunch of money. But vast budget whacking is going to have to take place in this Legislative Session. Sacrifices are forthcoming. That Krebs has chosen to begin with a sacrifice of her own, makes me believe she has some conservative chops. Good political move in this climate.
