Senator Amy K cannot wait to vote for a "tax and spend" budget. Typical DFL liberal.

It's the only tune these Marxists know. You would think one of the would have enough intelligence to think of something new.

Three dollars in cuts for every dollar in new tax revenue is the right ratio to keep a balanced budget. Glad to hear the DFL is talking cuts.

Reducing the deficit only through revenue increases would be irresponsible. Reducing the deficit only through spending cuts would be just as irresponsible, maybe more so. The only proper way to do it is to combine of the two, which is exactly what the Democrats are proposing.

Democrats never seem to meet a tax increase they don't like.

The recent federal tax increase plus Minnesota state income tax rate plus social security plus Obamacare plus medicare taxes puts the combined marginal rate for the so called wealthy at over 50%. Isn't that a high enough theft rate for the left wing to decide that spending cuts might be a better solution ?

Marxists,ha. The country saw the republican party leaning too far in that extreme direction. That is the reason the man you love to call names, Obama, is again in the White House. Keep it up republicans. Next your extremism will cost you the US house.

BTW, I think you need to look at the number of republicans in congress today compared to when Obama took office.

But other than that............
