"February capped the strongest six-month streak of job gains in Minnesota in nearly 30 years"...How could this possibly be? The democrats didn't take over the legislature until Jan...apparently, all that talk about jobs, jobs, jobs that the republican legislature promised (per all you libs), wasn't just talk!

Wait! The Liberals have not raised the minimum wage yet. That will bring this advancement to a complete halt. But, that means more welfare and handouts and that buys votes. Well, there you have the answer for the continuation of the Liberal life.

It's good to see the economy continuing to move forward. Regardless of your political philosophy, this is good news.

As our state and national economy's keep moving forward our deficits will continue to shrink. Half of our national deficit is due to the loss of jobs and the lack of revenues generated by those jobs. So this is very good news. We need to keep the focus on job creation. Europe, on the other hand, with its' self-imposed austerity budgets (ie. republican budgets) keeps falling deeper into recession.

Thanks Republicans of the past. Wait until the end of this session when the dems increase minimum wage by $2.00 an hour, it will shut everything down. It will all come to another screeching halt.

Apparently even a nod at fiscal responsibility stimulates the economy. Sort oflike threatening to drill more lowers gas prices.
