Another in a long list of examples of how T-Paw "didn't raise your taxes."

Republican or Democrat, they all will tap into our wallets one way or another. Some are just more obivious. Time to vote Independent.

Libs always say "Pay as you go".

If I never use LRT should I pay for it?

If I never use a bike path should I pay for it?

If I never use a museum should I pay for it?

If I never watch PBS should I pay for it?

If I never visit a state park should I pay for it?

If I never visit Giants Ridge should I pay for it?

If I never visit Iron World should I pay for it?

If I never visit the BWCAWCAW should I pay for it?

You get the idea, should Gobernut provide recreational services for free?

Do we have any politicians out there who know how to handle a budget deficit?

More $$ for Birth Certificates. More $$ for Death Certificates. They've got us coming and going.

This is another gift to the poor in Minnesota from Mr. No New Taxes T-Paw. How many surcharges can he find to add to the pile that he has built?

If the richest people in Minnesota would only pay their fair share of taxes, we would not be in the mess that we are in and those who need government services and assistance could survive and maybe even prosper.

Boo! T-Paw, you stink!

Again, get rid of half of the politicians and reduce the salaries of those left in half. No more pork. Deport all the illegals, 5% tax across the board, that gets rid of 3/4 of the IRS leeches. There, problem solved. NO MORE FEES NO MORE TAXES. Get rid of T-Paw and every single democrat and republican that has shown they don't have a clue how to handle this depression.

I agree, he should have said no to those stinking liberal democrats.

"deal between Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Democrats"? In other words the democrats wanted it to be twenty dollars and Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty wanted it to be zero? So they split the difference? Never met a progressive Democrat that wouldn't be happy to give you the shirt right off someone else's back.

Why is this news? I just checked out what it would cost to get a certified copy of my birth certificate from SD.$15. Same with any other vital record.

It's news because it's an additional $10. It's not that it will cost $10. It was already $16 and $9 for each additional copy. That makes it $26 and $19. Much more than your certificate from SD.

YES! Now all newborn Minnesota residents get a tax before their first breath!

TPAW didn't negotiate this very well. The tax should be $10,000, with a $9,990 rebate if the mom can provide a valid US birth certificate, too.

And that's only a fraction of what anchor babies cost the precious allmighty General Fund.

This is an additional "fee". Last summer I needed to get a copy of my son's certificate from Crow Wing County and it was $16.00. Now there will be ANOTHER $10.00 on top of that.

Explain to me why you agree? How is this a gift to the poor? Are you both saying that only poor people need birth certificates. So where's the income break point where a birth certificate is required and not required?

No new taxes T-Paw says, but nothing was said about new surcharges, fees, and city taxes. Do you think we're too dumb to see through your smoke screen?

Silly man. You obviously have not followed me all these years. The Teabaggers and the Repuli-thugs are what is ruining this great nation our ancestors built.
