So to all of you who were so "willing to pay for a better Minnesota--"Be prepared to take it in the shorts, and pay through the nose.
I just got off the phone with Steve Gottwalt, who had some shocking news from the Capitol. Today, at a committee hearing, Cy Thao told Steve “When you guys win, you get to keep your money. When we win, we take your money.” This was Thao’s explanation as to how the DFL plans on paying for all the spending increases they promised their special interest friends.
You’d better hear this loud & clear, people. It’s blatantly obvious that the Minnesota DFL has declared war on our pocketbooks with their proposed tax increases & their promise of increasing spending dramatically. Let’s remember that Mindy Greiling said so publicly at a news conference this week:
Greiling outlined her plan at a Capitol news conference, where DFL lawmakers including four first-term representatives gave their support. They said they campaigned to raise more money for schools, and Greiling said neither Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s budget proposal nor the state’s projected $2.16 billion budget surplus will do the job.
Mindy Greiling’s saying that a $2.16 billion surplus isn’t enough to satisfy their spending needs, combined with Thao’s declaration that “When you guys win, you get to keep your money. When we win, we take your money” should be proof positive that the Democrats’ agenda is based on their belief that there’s never enough money to satisfy their spending habits.
