What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

The time has come to stop subsidizing casinos and start collecting revenue.

The Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party is going to be raising taxes left and right to raise money to finance a gaggle of boon-doggles including building the Minnesota Vikings a new football Stadium as poverty continues to rise.

We already have toll booths at state parks and even many county parks and township parks.

Why doesn't the Minnesota State Legislature build toll booths going into all of the casinos?

Just charge the same amount of money it costs to get into a Minnesota State Park.

All current budget problems and the deficit would be solved...

Plus unemployed people could be hired to staff these toll booths and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) which has so enthusiastically championed all of Governor Dayton's tax-increases would gain new members.
