Funding this e-pulltabs Mark? How about cutting some state spending instead. Where do you draw the line (who gets it, who doesn't) for funding of the private sector?
Seems to me to be of great benefit to Minnesota to keep and improve Mayo! This is what jobs are all about. You can bet that other states will be standing in line for the extra jobs if we fail to act in a timely way! Thank you, Governor!
Lindaspy: Where do you think the money is going to come from for this new adventure. I suppose Dayton could just fiqure out what else he could tax. Remember we still have a stadium to pay for.
While Mayo may be an important employer and major health care insitution to keep in Minnesota, I wonder why Mayo can't ask its major benefactors to help fund its expansion. I also would have been salting away a little money all these years for just such an occasion. The state can't help everyone that steps up to the trough.
The state can't help everyone that steps up to the trough.-------You are correct. they are too busy buying votes from the citizens with all the freebies. They can't support the people that actually provide jobs. The people that get the freebies aren't interested in jobs so why would the DFL support these businesses.
Mayo is not asking for public money to expand Mayo, they asking the tax payers to build up the Rochester infrastructure. This in the long-term will hopefully attract other big businesses to the city. My issue here is with Governor Dayton. Mayo Clinic catered to him and he was treated beautifully. Not the case for most of us. Even though I voted for him, I am beginning to see him as a pampered man who has no idea how the rest of us live and are treated. Has anyone else notice that the high profile people going to Mayo that the Star Tribune likes to name drop are all men? In regards to Mayo, if it cannot be relevant and share the values that most younger people in our country share, they will simple dwindle and disappear, no matter how money is given and how many foreign patients travel to Mayo. It's also the attitude and as we saw from Dr. John Noseworthy, Mayo is still full of its self.
