Thank you, Arne, for reminding us all once again that there was a time when the GOP was a party of fiscal balance and responsibility. What a difference a decade makes!

It's embarrassing that my state adopted such a stupid budgeting practice. Can we get some adults to fix this please??

What? The State of Minnesota is in trouble again? Who cares? The Democras now control all of the government and surely they will straigten it out...??? As for me, "What? Me worry"?

I miss Arne! I'm a Dem and I voted for him.... and I would proudly do it again. It's a travesty that the Repubs have run the likes of Carlson, Ramstad and Durenberg out of the party.
