A 35% raise, pads the unions pocket via daycare and waste countless hours on gay rights yeah really got things done. Lest I forget put their heads down wondering how come more needed tax money from gambling never materialized. Actually when the demos control all the segments of gov they have to spend more time trying to afix blame on higher taxes and wasteful spending because when the truth comes out they will need more excuses then oblamer gives and he has run out. Maybe when the next batch of illegals get here we will have enough money banked up so they can get better housing, free phones,medical, better schooling free then us taxpayers could afford for our kids. Won't be long and we will be like Chicago.

Obviously Republicans are vexed over many issues. Weber claimed "Democrats imposed government upon people's lives more...than ever." This coming from someone who tried to impose government will on marriages and voters. Of course we all experienced how Republican tax cuts helped our economy - cuts to education, record unemployment, crumbling infrastructure, record deficits. With Democrats in the majority, the future looks much brighter now than it did under 8 years of Pawlenty.

I think that this legislature veered too far to the left and think a Republican Governor would bring political balance to Minnesota. We are taxing and spending too much.
