I wish the radicals at both ends would get a clue! First the conservatives overreach on social programs and now the liberals find the need to overreach back. It seems like the Unions and the NRA are driving the agendas. Could both sides take a political chill pill and do some responsible governing? The only people with no voice in St Paul are the middle of the road moderates.

Yes, these folks are helping out the average person or middle class by passing along massive tax hikes on cigarettes ($1.30 per pack?) & beer. I'm pretty sure only the wealthy smoke & drink. That's why everyone voted these folks in, right?

Quit worrying. Liberals are only after more money from the rich.

Pay attention to how your political servants are voting people! Especially when they vote against the folks they are supposedly representing. Obviously out of touch politicians. I am at the point of giving up working and trying to make a better life. People with child care needs are going to need a child subsidy soon if they don't already.... more taxes.

After giving themselves a 35% pay-raise I suspect we will see a lot more constructive activity in the political arena. Oh wait , I see they passed a bill with gay rights and unionized daycare. Even stayed up late to do it. Is there anything to benefit the average taxpayer? I guess you have to be either a union member, gay,or a illegal to see much benefit in this state administration.

Gay marriage and daycare unionization. Governor Goofy must think that everything else is just peachy in Minnesota. It’s time to get him back out to the prairie for another big pheasant party and celebrate the success of all his fabulous priorities!

The DFL just gifted the unions despite the huge majority of workers that don't want them in this industry.

How much did the unions donate in buying off the legislature in St. Paul?
