Pawlenty Says GOP Must Produce Results For Voters

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says Republicans are going to have to produce some results or they’ll be tossed out in two years just as Democrats were in last week’s election.

Pawlenty spoke Sunday morning on CNN’s “State of the Nation.”

Pawlenty did not run for re-election and leaves office next year. He says he hasn’t decided yet whether he’ll run for president in 2012. But he says if he does run, repealing the federal health care reform law will be part of his platform.

Pawlenty says the law is a bad idea, and he’s doing all he can to stop its implementation in Minnesota. He has signed an executive order telling state agencies they should not move ahead with the reforms unless they receive his OK or are “otherwise required by law.”
