Been watching TV coverage everyday. Spending and new government control bills are way out of whack. Most Minnesotans won't know what hit them until it does. Very selfish and dismissive session. Jerks in both parties.

I want to know when the democrats are going to start complaining that our great state leader is acting like a republican with big business tax breaks? Here's more info on the Baxter Healthcare that was briefly mentioned in this article. "Following a hush-hush courtship, top Minnesota lawmakers acknowledged Tuesday, April 16, that they are compiling a multimillion-dollar package of public subsidies and tax breaks to encourage an Illinois-based pharmaceutical firm to add 200 high-paying jobs and undertake a substantial construction project in their state. The extent of the public offerings is becoming known months into a high-level recruitment. The name of the company, Baxter Healthcare Corp., had been constrained by a confidentiality agreement entered into by Gov. Mark Dayton's administration. Even lawmakers who have begun voting on the package didn't know which firm would benefit. The first clues surfaced Monday. The tax break was a clause buried in a 330-page tax plan released by House Democrats." From the pioneer-press/AP

To Panktainter - I too have been watching almost everything, every day. It's been amazing and I agree that more Minnesotans should watch (I watch UpTake)to see how it all works. I don't know that I would call them jerks, per se, but as has been said, it's like watching sausage being made.

A little bit of sanity prevailed with the rejection of the lock out unemployment funding.

The DFL just gave away 5 million of our tax dollars to a corporate giant and liberals remain silent. Baxter's stock is near an all time high and they have 3.2 BILLION in cash on hand. And nothing but silence from liberals...
