As a Minneapolis taxpayer, I wish Willmar had the Target Center too. skol to living within our means.

plan2succeed, if we lived within our means there would be no roads, highways, airports, or anything else that has built up this society from its boot straps back in the 1800's. This society is a credit based one and that will never change. It is equally true of government. Wishing for it to change will also never result in the desired change actually happening. If it did you would need cash up front to buy a home, a car, pay for your medical care, and so on. Good luck with that.

These updates are necessary for this venue. I'm excited for this to go through, lets keep moving forward and up, make Minneapolis the great city it used to be.

Nah, what's another 100 million? Pocket change. (/sarcasm)

$100 million is a lot of money. But it beats spending $500 million to replace the arena in ten years if you don't do the renovation now.

Minneapolis does live within its means in that it pays off its debt. In fact the city has eliminated half of its debt in the last decade.

Corporations borrow all the time in order to expand. It is called investment debt. Likewise consumer borrow to buy a car, pay for an education and buy a house. This is a good thing and needed in order to increase income. Show me a company or person with no debt - and you will see that they have no debt because they are super wealthy because of previous debt investments or they will be poor because they refused to go into any investment debt.

FYI, the money comes from a hospitality tax -- so residents are not paying, visitors are.

I'll miss staying, eating and drinking in Minneapolis. I won't miss paying the extra, welfare for billionaire and spend, spend, spend Democrats taxes.
