Last week, the MNGOP caved on spending, giving Governor Dayton the $35.5 billion budget he wanted. It’s a good thing, too, because even this budget, which represents a $3.5 billion cut, will hurt a lot of Minnesotans. One area the GOP wouldn’t budge on, though, was taxing millionaires. Even after agreeing to meet the governor on spending, they refused to pay for it. Instead, they passed an irresponsible budget bill that borrows from our future and steals from our children. The ink hasn’t even dried, and they’re already trying to whitewash their irresponsible bill, pretending that putting our budget on a credit card is somehow a victory for Minnesotans.
