A Democratic Governor.
A solid majority in the Minnesota State House.
A solid majority in the Minnesota State Senate.
And what is their legislative agenda? To raise property taxes and user fees.
What has happened to "property tax relief?"
What has happened to enforcing Affirmative Action?
What has happened to single-payer universal health care like our neighbors to the north have in Canada?
What has happened to eliminating poverty?
What has happened to their pledge to raise the minimum wage to a real living--- non-poverty--- wage?
And the list goes on.
But, the point is; here in Minnesota the Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party is refusing to do what is right by the people and they are intent on doing the same thing Obama has done--- deliver a Republican driven austerity budget they call "progressive."
