IrishMN- Fact: You are a pathetic loser. Also you know nothing about state budgets. Nothing.
Joe, show me where I am wrong. What do you know about the State budgets that I don't?

And thanks for the personal concern expressed. I promise you that I will strive to become a winner just like you when I grow up. OK?

troll, if you had not opened with such a crude comment, we could have a vigorous discussion on this topic.

You obviously are not man enough to agrue your own points, and throwing the asinine insults into the mix only weakens your position. Grow up, OK?

<quoted text>Minnesota's state constitution doesn't allow debt. You must mean the projected deficit, which in no way is a debt. Therefore, Pawlenty didn't leave the state with a $5 billion debt, he left it with a $663 million surplus. Insanity is pointing out math flaws to a liberal.
Liberalism, for people bad at math.
What? It's hard to hear you. You sound all muffled from having your head up your @$$. Man, YOU are painfully stupid. You should be quiet. Adults are talking.

The GOP must attack, they have no plan to protect. The budget they submitted was the same warmed over Pawlenty Budget that put five billion in debt. Did not work then and won't work now.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results but getting the same. Republicans are insane.
65% of Minnesotans agree with Dayton that a mix of cuts and increasd revenue is the way to go.
so lets spend 20% more that should solve it.

I sure did not hear anything about CUTS! Perhaps you would just like to pay my taxes for me so I don't have to work - that is the mentality you spew! Matter of fact hand me free food and free housing and free anything else while you are at it please!!!!

Your statement of 10 and 12% is way off. MN income tax brackets are between 5.35 and 7.85% of income. The more that you make in MN, the higher your income tax bracket. See below.
