"In just the last year Minnesotans have seen taxes increase by over $1 billion:
First the legislature overrode Governor Pawlenty's veto to increase the gas tax, sales
tax, and license tax, for a whopping $697 million per year in higher taxes.
Second, the legislature increased business taxes by $141 million.
Third, on November 4th, voters approved a state sales tax increase of $276 million
per year for the arts and outdoors.
THAT'S OVER A BILLION DOLLARS OF NEW TAXES IN ONE YEAR."(end of quote)
There you have it people! Can anyone say Senator Olseen and Representative Kalin?
