"Top lawmakers will haggle over the differences in their budget plans..." - It's like two drunken sailors fighting over a bottle of whiskey in order to see who can tax MN residents the most.

After Alaska, Minnesota spends more per low-income person on public welfare than any other state and outspends the average peer state by nearly $4,000. On K-12 education, Minnesota spending per pupil ranked 15th-highest in the nation. Minnesota spends more than any other Midwest state.

Tax and spend, Tax and Spend. WOW. Did anyone think it would be any different. The thing i LOVE about it is that while all you lefties demanded more taxes, you demanded them only from OTHERS. Now, even YOU get to pay for your demand for added taxes. Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. And now you are!

You can't expect to move into a classy neighborhood without paying a little more. So get ye hence, Teapublicans, to Mississippi or Alabama, and bask in your miserliness.

So get ye hence, Teapublicans, to Mississippi or Alabama, and bask in your miserliness. ----------------------------- That's not the issue. The issue is too much spending, too many taxes and no cuts to ineffective programs. MN is in trouble.

I have never seen a budget in the private sector that didn't include cuts to outdated, redundant or underperforming programs. The Dayton budget just piles more on the govt bloat. Some of the new programs should be funded by cuts like these which would reduce the tax burden.
