Umm, this is Minnesota taxes. We have to have a balanced budget constitutionally. How does that equate to anything to do with China? Oh, that is right, it doesn't. Don't go away mad, just go away.

I see, your state exists in a vacuum.... the vacuum of your mind.... By investing in infrastructure there's more opportunity and less time lost for business ...transportation is infrastructure, sad troll...

You are right, there is nothing wrong with raising taxes to pay for the necessary services provided by the government as outlined in the State and Federal Constitutions - as long as everyone proportionately shares in the payments.

Two key words above: "necessary" and "proportionately"

One key phrase above: "as outlined in the State and Federal Constitutions"

To this time, neither Gov GoogleyEyes nor the Messiah have come close to meeting those criteria.

That number was before some of the taxes proposed in the legislature by the DFL representatives this session. We can still make #1.
