Obamacare, medical device tax, warehouse tax, farm maCHInery tax, forcing private business to Unionize, voting themselves a 35% raise using our tax dollars, signing contracts they didn't understand, e tabs......Yep, democrats brought us all this and more. Remember that next election so we can get rid of these people.

Predictions for 2014: 1. Dayton loses governorship. 2. Republicans regain control of Minnesota House. 3. Ryback wants to be governor but never gets there. 4. It will be a long time before the Democrats control all three branches again. Why? The Democrats have no fiscal discipline. They tax and spend. They never learn.

Mn GOP is wishing and hoping for 2013...but I don't think there are enough issues working against Dayton. Mn economy is doing fairly well, unemployment is one of the lowest rates in the country, spending money on getting some highway issues fixed (finally), the list goes on and on. The GOP has what? Still can't pay the rent (fiscally responsible?), stuck the taxpayers with the legal bill for one of their leaders transgressions (morally pure?), no original thoughts of their own or allegiance to the Mn Taxpayer (ALEC writes all their bills for them)...what exactly are they going to run on?

GOP regrouped? They aren't smart enough. They will repeat their failed message over and over and continue to be the failures they are today.

"What exactly are they going to run on?" For one thing, they will advocate fixing the Mnsure trainwreck. For another, lower taxes.

For one thing, they will advocate fixing the Mnsure trainwreck. =========================================== Software is easy to fix. The same cannot be said of the GOP platform!
