Dayton wants to take about $24.5 million from a cigarette-tax increase. He has proposed increasing the tax to $2.52 per pack, up from the current $1.23 per pack.

The DFL governor also wants to take $26 million in the first year and $20 million in subsequent years by forcing some companies to pay more income taxes to the state.

Some companies avoid Minnesota corporate income taxes by attributing Minnesota sales to affiliates in other states. Dayton would require reporting all those revenues in Minnesota, the newspaper reported.

The state has agreed to pay $348 million toward the new $975 million stadium. It planned on raising that money through electronic pull tabs, but that revenue has been slower than expected.

The money from the other taxes would be deposited into the general fund, but wouldn't be used for the stadium unless needed.

Social engineering is a main plank of the Democratic platform!
I would agree that it is wrong to the extent they do it.
They would do FAR more if they thought they could get away with it!
