How much is enough for these tax and spend politicians?? Home values mean nothing when it is on your favor. My value has gone down $125,000 and my taxes have continued to increase. Not right.....

The predictions that taxes would still go up even with extra state aid are coming true. Property tax caps along with this additional state aid would have produced much better results than additional state aid with no caps.

You must be mistaken. The DFL and Gov Dayton assured us as they raised taxes $2.1B that local taxes would drop. It's just not possible that local taxes would go up as well. Need to check your figures I think.

"...the state’s cities, counties, townships, schools and special taxing districts are planning across-the-board tax increases." LOL! And the Democrats told us that we do NOT have a spending problem, but a revenue problem. So, Democrats hammered "the rich" with new taxes, used some of it to increase welfare spending (to buy votes) and increase aid to local governments to help put downward pressure on property taxes (also to buy votes as most of that money was steered to loyal Democrat-voting St. Paul and Murderapolis) and it turns out it isn't going to do much good after all. Awwww.... Too bad some people can't see the obvious.

Mark Dayton- Inner Party member of the Ministry of Plenty, proudly declared the reduction of taxes through the systematic raising of our tax burden.

Mr. Matt Entenza was recently on a statewide publicity tour promoting the fact that YOUR property taxes will go down.

So where are all the GOP-haters who cried that state spending restraint was forcing up local property taxes? Silent now, eh? Only a fool believes that state and local spending are linked.

Governor Dayton and the DFL-controlled legislature will have a lot of explaining to do if property taxes increase anywhere in Minnesota in 2014. It's an election year, folks. HELLO!!!

Just another lie told by Democrats. Throw it on the pile with the rest of them.
