If you go back and look at the historic patterns of spending for the Federal Govt and the State of MN, you will see $1.40 in new spending for every new dollar of revenue they take in.The question becomes, how much revenue will be enough? As is the case at the state level, if you get to a surplus, the Dems will spend it! Without spending reductions, no plan will work and the biggest items on the blcok, have to be Medicare and SS, have to be, they are the biggest two entitlment liabilities we have. Under to non funded federal mandates!
For the 1,000,000,000th time, we do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.
