Politicians taking our hard-earned money
The 2013 Minnesota Legislature started facing a projected budget shortfall of $635 million and by state mandate must balance the budget.
The new DFL-controlled government has a “fix” for this shortfall: raising taxes and fees for all Minnesotans. The House DFL did so by about $2,944,895,000. Yes, that is $2.9 billion! That’s $547 for every man, woman and child in Minnesota, $2,188 for a family of four on a tight budget.
