That’s a first: Dayton reads bills?

Rachel Stassen-Berger’s article provides a little levity at a critical time. Ms. Stassen-Berger’s article opens by saying “Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton will spend his holiday weekend reviewing the minute details of the spending and tax bills the Legislature delivered for his signature as he decides their fate.” If that’s true, it will mark the first […]

Uppity peasant vs. Rep. Thissen

A little over a week ago, the St. Cloud Times published my LTE in which I talked about how Speaker Daudt challenged Rep. Thissen. Specifically, I wrote that Thissen accused Republicans of throwing “controversial provisions into big bills right at the end” of session. Unwilling to let Rep. Thissen’s spin go unchallenged, Speaker Daudt asked […]

Dayton lectures Chamber, legislature on reality

When Mark Dayton attempts to lecture the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and the legislature about dealing with reality, it’s time for a reality check. That’s what Gov. Dayton attempted to do during his speech to the Chamber: Dayton pitched a skittish state Chamber of Commerce on transportation tax hikes that he said will generate the […]

Kessler’s partisan Reality Check

Pat Kessler’s Reality Check on Jeff Johnson’s latest ad is a step down for Kessler. On the positive side, he got this part mostly right: The ad takes some tough shots at Gov. Mark Dayton and, unexpectedly, the owners of the Minnesota Vikings. It’s classic political mudslinging, but there is some truth to it, as […]

Gov. Dayton’s pathetic apology

Dayton’s trifecta of disaster

Dayton alienates Iron Range

Gov. Dayton isn’t a leader. Further,he won’t confront the environmental activist wing of the DFL. That’s why it isn’t surprising that Gov. Dayton called pro-mining Republicans “highly irresponsible”: REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. — DFL Gov. Mark Dayton on Thursday called his Republican rivals “highly irresponsible” for pledging to re-open an Iron Range mine before an environmental […]

The DFL’s apologists

I just started watching Almanac’s Roundtable but I had to stop and write about what panelists Heather Carlson, Mary Lahammer and Tom Scheck said. Frankly, what they said is insulting. They’re disgraces to the reporting profession because they aren’t telling the whole truth. When Cathy Wurzer asked Heather Carlson if passing these tax cuts was […]

Will Dorholt’s tax increase vote hurt him?

Last spring, Zach Dorholt willingly voted for the DFL’s tax increase bill. This year, Rep.

DFL’s anti-business leanings exposed

The DFL’s hostility towards businesses has been frequently documented. Tax the Rich became their mantra in 2008. It’s still part of their mantra today. Unfortunately for Minnesotans, Gov. Dayton and the DFL didn’t just ‘tax the rich.’ They dropped a ton of taxes on the middle class and the working poor. Speaker Thissen officially went […]

DFL distancing themselves from tax increases

Next November, DFL legislators will likely pay a steep price at the voting booth for voting for the biggest tax increase in Minnesota history.

Sarah Anderson speaks out against tax increases

Rep. Sarah Anderson issued this statement about the DFL’s tax increases: Dear Neighbors, As a kid, you dreaded hearing the phrase, “other figures sold separately,” at the end of a toy commercial.
