Why should outstate MN have to subsidize the poor budgets of St. Paul and Minneapolis and all of our ridiculous pet projects? For the same reason motorists in the Metro subsidize roads in southwest Minnesota - ultimately your own self interest.

Like people aren't poor in the rural areas of Minnesota.

It's about time someone called them on this.

The Democratic party is full of elitists who just pass off DFL voters in the rural areas as dumb rednecks.

This has been going on for years and years.

What's with these idiots at the capitol. We need to raise the excise tax on beverage alcohol. A 2001 study done by MN Dept. of Public Health shows that the public is paying out around 1.5 to 2 billion over the current tax just for the damage these idiot drinkers do to us. The alcohol beverage industry begs for responsible drinking. Accountability is the first step to responsibility. Drinkers need to pay up. This is why we're in a deficit. RAISE the TAX.
