Four months ago when the legislative session began no one knew what to expect. It would be the first time in more than 20 years that the Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate as well as the Governor’s office.

Now with just three weeks before the scheduled adjournment of the 2013 legislative session the intent of the DFL lawmakers actions are clear. They are doing everything imaginable in their power to drive entrepreneurs and job creators out of Minnesota.

[...]

If you examine the long list of anti-business proposals introduced during the last four months, it is staggering. They have proposed everything from the unionization of private child care businesses to a three dollar per hour hike in the minimum wage. They are also moving to place new fees on an array of things from the insurance policy for your home to the water you drink. In addition to a blizzard of new regulations and fees these young cowboys are determined to round up everyone with earnings above the median income level and brand them with higher taxes. Their multi-billion dollar increase in taxes includes an income tax increase for those making over $80,000, to a sales tax on clothing, taxing internet sales, a $1.60 per pack increase on cigarettes and higher taxes on beer and wine.

They have even proposed to make Minnesota the highest tax state in the nation for those with incomes over $500,000. No one should think they can escape these cowboys in their tax roundup; everyone will pay more, whether it is your cigarettes, a beer, a haircut or even your new blue jeans.

In the Democrat “roundup” to drive entrepreneurs out of the state, Gov. Dayton also included a provision to impose an income tax on anyone who lived outside the state for more than 60 days, just to make sure you’re taxed even if you try to leave.

If you think for a moment that the current actions of DFL lawmakers won’t drive business owners and upper income wage earners out of Minnesota you only need to read three recent reports.

First is the Tax Foundation’s 2013 report on “State Business Tax Climate Index”. The report ranks all 50 states on how their states’ tax system compares to others. In their report Minnesota currently ranks 45th. And this is before the massive DFL tax increase hammer comes down on Minnesota’s small businesses. Don’t forget that 90% of small business owners report their business earnings on their individual income filing.

The second report to consider is the Kauffman Foundation’s annual index of entrepreneurial activity. This recently released report shows Minnesota dead last for new business starts in 2012. Yes, Minnesota had fewer new business start-ups than economic power houses like Wyoming and West Virginia. Reflect for a moment that a high tax state like New York is advertising that they are cutting taxes in order to attract business to the “New, New York”. While here in Minnesota we are placing higher taxes on anyone who has a job.

The third report that highlights trouble ahead for Minnesota’s business development is a new report by the Center of the American Experiment. The report is entitled “Minnesotans on the move to lower tax states”. The report -- http://www.americanexperiment.org/sites/defau... -- shows that Minnesota loses thousands of people and their income to lower tax states every year. It states that “Minnesota’s tax policies directly impact economic growth and opportunity in the state”.

These three studies show an alarming trend in Minnesota.... Some legislators think that by providing millions of taxpayer dollars to large corporations like the Mayo Clinic or the Mall of America it will sustain Minnesota’s economic long term growth. What they forget is the 70% of Minnesota jobs are provided by employers with less than 100 employees....

"Our boy O’Malley and his Democrats are like Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves here in Maryland. They charge me a flush tax to crap in my own septic system and now have imposed a rain tax for every time it rains, not to mention an 80% tax increase on fuel.

"And my Governor thinks he can run for President. LMAO
He wont get many votes from Marylanders.

"1/3rd of the Millionaires in Maryland have already run out of state, and the others are packing."

Boo hoo, querulous liberal.

I'm "Demystifying liberal myth" in both posts. There's obviously an inadvertent typo in the second one.

Got anything to say about the substance of the article? Anything to say about the avarice and depredations of the DFL leviathan?

Or are you too busy straining gnats while swallowing camels?

I say do it all DFL!!

Raise taxes all ovr.

Make Minnesota the HIGHEST taxed state in the USA!!

Go ahead!!

People living here arn't fools. They will simply search for ways to reduce taxes AND expenditures.

Boy are there a bunch of ways to do both. Of course when they reduce taxes so goes revenue for Government.

BTW one way of reduing taxes is to move the phock out of Minnesota.

DFL are fools.

They allowed the I35W bridge to fall into the Mississippi. Killing over 10 and injuring many and causing many years of turmoile for the Twin Cities.

After this disaster DFL leadership resiged Legislative posts, they left in shame.

Now we have a replacement set of DFL idiots in the Legialature that are just as willing to allow additional bridges to fall as long as they get bike paths and bike bridges. AND million dollar water fountians.

The only good path in Minnesota is the path OUT!!!

Another Saturday nigt and I ain't got nobody
I have some money 'cause i just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
I blew in town 1 week ago, I ain't seen a lotta girls since then
If I could find'em I could get'em but as yet I have'nt met'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in ohhhh
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I have some money 'cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
Another fella told me he had a sister that looked so fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strong resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein ohhhh....
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I have some money 'cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
It's hard for a fella, when he don't know his way around
If I can't find me a honey to help me spend my money
I'm gonna have to blow this town ohhh....
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I have some money 'cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to

Sitting on a park bench --
eying little girls with bad intent.
Snot running down his nose --
greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.
Drying in the cold sun --
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Feeling like a dead duck --
spitting out pieces of his broken luck.

The transsexual poopy irony song.....
