Yes, clothing is already astronomically priced. I would have to shrink my budget even more.

No -- I very rarely buy clothing items over $100. In those rare cases an extra 8% won't break the bank. For those who regularly buy clothes that expensive, I am guessing they can afford them!

No, everyone needs clothes. What it would do is discourage me and my family from shopping in MN so in the end who gets hurt? Minnesota businesses. More clear thinking from this visionary. This is the kind of idiotic proposals one can expect from a failed one term Senator who's peers considered him illogical, irrational, and unpredictable. Dayton is a self proclaimed alcoholic with a history of mental health concerns who has never worked in the private sector. All this, and yet some of you thought this would be a good person to make decisions on our behalf. Simply amazing.

One hundred dollars is no longer what it use to be. But is one more straw on the backs of the former middle class people. One more way not to go and spend. And I remember that we were promised that we would never have to pay sales taxs on clothing or medicine or food. Another broken promise from our leaders of Minnesota. Do any of you believe this Governor or any other promises from our legislators? Not I. I will go to another close state that tries to intice people to buy things to help their states.

No - sales tax or the lack of it doesn't influence my buying decisions on ANYTHING.
