Unbelievable! The legislature can't seem to find enough things to tax can they. And I thought the deal was a wrap, Vikings pay, Minnesotans pay, pull tabs pay, and it's all good right? Now they are going to make the fans pay two on three times. Initial up from taxpayer money, sales tax on products, concessions, etc, now sales tax on products from other sports teams, it is really a reaming with no lube. This is what we get for letting professional sports teams hold us hostage for new stadiums that they can well afford to build on their own dime.

It's obvious that their lawyers are way smarter than ours and doubly so when it comes to our elected officials.

Gov. Dayton is a failure and a liar. If he wins re-election the voters get what they deserve.

Go figure a Democrat that is all excited about corporate welfare. He probably will get re-elected since he "created" a whole bunch of temporary jobs for the trade unions.
