167Million in cuts is pretty minor when compared to the entire $2Billion spending package. And I'm pretty sure there is nothing in the prospoal to cover the revenue shortfall of the Vikings stadium now is there?

Just like Obama, you people can't stop blaming someone from the past for your own failures.

More of that "new" math. Guess they only teach that stuff in Political Science-101. Next thing we know he'll present that "cuts" $38 billion.

The STRIB point out that the GOP is questioning the Govenor's Budget. I think EVERYONE should be watching this budget...not just the GOP.

Give me a break. Where was the GOP's complaints when Pawlenty shifted money all over the place? We are still having to repay money that he shifted from one fund to another (education being one) to make it look like he balanced the budget.

MN government is bloated and should be cut in half. Dayton should give back the money he stole from the schools now - and not in 2017.

Who stole money from the schools? Dayton? You have to be kidding me. Spin is one thing; downright stupidity on this topic is another! PS How about we cut the state legislature to half the amount of people? Talk about "bloat."

There are no budget cuts just a cut in the growth. Wish more people & news media would explain a cut in the growth is not a cut!!!! There has never been a budget in St. Paul or Washington that was smaller then the last budget. Until that happens it is NOT a cut.
