Dayton’s Shell Game Sends Mixed Signals On Middle Class Taxes:
Governor Mark Dayton has been very clear on where he stands with raising taxes on businesses and “the rich” – yes you.
It’s much harder to figure out where Governor Dayton and the Democrats are coming from on the issue of taxes and the middle class.
They held a press conference this week touting new projections that property taxes would actually decrease in 2014. Keep your eye on those projections, by the way – they come from the same agency that predicted e-pull tabs would finance the new Vikings stadium.
So the Governor says low property taxes are a good thing for hard-working Minnesotans. We agree. But he had to raise over $2 billion in new taxes and fees, much of them on the middle class and even poor Minnesotans, to pay for lots of things including his supposed $121 million property tax reduction.
So which is it? Are higher taxes good or bad for the middle class?
Remove the F from DFL: Democrats too often using farmers as political pawns:
Democrats in Washington are using Minnesota farmers as pawns for big government welfare programs. At first, Democrats supported a new farm bill, but when they didn’t get their welfare programs customized to their liking they voted against the farm bill. Why can’t they split the two issues into two separate bills?
