In other words, Thiessen is saying they spent the money before they got it.

Let the disaster relief be settled without a special session, and let the democrats explain why they inserted the farm machinery tax and the warehouse tax to the public. No way they can blame the GOP as jobs are lost and businesses move. Another signed piece of legislation that Dayton didnt understand, know about, and agreed to.

"Bakk and House Speaker Paul Thissen threw cold water on that idea after the meeting, saying they didn't know where to get money to repeal the additional taxes."------ There was a $600 million deficit, you raised taxes by $2.1 billion. I would think there are plenty of places where you could actually cut spending.

In case you aren't sure what they meaning of the word cut is, this is from an online dictionary: "cut [kuht]; to lower, reduce, diminish, or curtail (sometimes followed by down): to cut prices."

Another example is: to cut spending.
