Odds are that tax revenues are up because of the economy improving. There was no need to increase taxes by 2 billion dollars. As the new taxes are collected the DFL will increase spending by creating new entitlement programs, rewarding unions and expanding existing programs. The money will be spent before it even collected. When the next economic downturn occurs you will hear the DFL scream for more taxes to cover their excessive spending. The DFL is out of control and has been for 40 years.

Thank goodness our democratic governor raised taxes on the rich in this state, we are doing way better than states like Wisconsin where they lowered taxes on their wealthy people, and back in this state our wealthy people will still be doing just fine just the same.

"Thank goodness our democratic governor raised taxes on the rich in this state" - I wish people actually looked at the taxes the DFL raised and who will be paying them. The taxes on the so-called rich are symbolic. The rest of us will be paying the majority of the higher taxes.
