The story reads as follows, ‘Consumers *** AKA** Democrats who fail to set spending limits or who don’t have a plan are among the most likely to wind up overspending’ This we have learned not only from pres b o that has brought us HIS ‘Great Recession’ from HIS over-spending, but also from DFLers that owned both Houses in ST Paul for years and wanted us Minnesotans to suffer THEIR sort of ‘Great Recession ‘ when they passed a spending Bill that caused a 5 Billion Dollar short Fall, had Gov Tim signed it. Thank Heaven HE didn’t sign it, which allowed the people of Minnesota to vote in 2010 to correct it. It was a tough battle, but the voters won, even though the Mn. DFLers under gov moneybags dayton did cost us all a Billion dollars of revenue , that had he signed the Bills into Law, that Billion dollars we lost would of funded all schools in all District all the money they could of wanted, BUT with the DFLes 20 day shut done of the State ,this Billions dollars was lost forever. Too Bad I say.

I must say, the one thing that Dayton did that upsets me, was to knuckle under to the TP legislature last year.
I would have been far more happy if he’d let the shutdown go until hell froze over before signing that bill that he did.
But since Pawlenty already had pulled that ‘emergency measure’ crap the year before, and was shut down by the state Supreme Court, that possible option was out.
But, with the loss of the Homestead Credit, and other things, I’d say that next fall will see a BIG turnover in our legislature. Hopefully, there will be a few Independents elected!

Right – because Republicans, by nature, are expert budgeters that never overspend on holiday gift-giving. Holiday spending levels can absolutely be attributed to political affiliation.
Absurd, Ed. But, hey, at least you found a way to spin your traditional rant into things………….. good job.
