The best way for business leaders to help solve the state's problems is for all of them to committ they will work to make Dayton a one term governor.

@ispacecowboy: you said, "The best way for business leaders to help solve the state's problems is for all of them to committ they will work to make Dayton a one term governor."

Your call for everyone to hate someone is not productive. No matter what the issue and no matter who is involved, all solutions turn out to be better when all the people involved really do work together.

Wow Dayton... You want to know one way to help our fiscal issues as well as fund infrastructure projects? Don't dedicate valuable resources to a Vikings stadium!!! There really is no more wasteful way to spend money that blow it on a special interest boondoggle that doesn't grow the economy and may even cost more than it takes in. We would be better off building Kwik trip gas stations with taxpayer money!

If Dayton spent as much time on getting good paying jobs into the state as he does on that silly stadium issue good things would happen..

Ask for help? Our Gov seems to have no clue except for tax and spend and more regulation. Maybe if he worked one day in the private sector he might some ideas. Want to help MN gov? Resign.

People say how much a new stadium will help businesses but businesses never seem to have any interest in building it. Doublespeak?

"If Minnesota's economy remains listless, Dayton and legislators could be back looking at borrowing or tax hikes".

----> If the golden goose produces fewer eggs ...."then kill it"??

I have said many times ....we do NOT have a "money" problem here in this state and country. We have a FREE-MARKET VALUE problem with our workforce and people. Our workforce and people have $0.00 of free-market value to sell to society at-large ...yet want all the expensive "finer things in life" and lifestyle.

Either we need to lower our lifestyle wanted to match our lower free-market value ...or we need to raise our free-market value to entitle ourselves to the lifestyle. Or both.

SO, he was just out playing up the vikes stadium. Yawn. . . . MAybe if he did SOMETHING to help the state, instead of going around and telling everyone else to do something, we could get ahead.

Hmmmmm. The Multi-purpose Metrodome cost $60M to build and this new playground will cost $1.1B to build? What happened? Did the price of 2x4s go up some 20 times in the past 20 something years? I don't think so. Are there not enough people available or willing to work on a new stadium because they need $100 per hour to work? I don't think so. Well then. How much of this so-called 'stadium funding' will go to line pockets and grease palms?------ Given the cost of inflation........my guess would be $1B of it.

twinkie1..the dome design was generic at best, seating for baseball was pathetic (seats facing the wrong way), the difference is the new Twins Stadium (Best Park in N America), and the Dome (Looks like an old Cold War Russian Housing Project).
