Dayton To GOP: Show Me Your No New Taxes Budget

Posted by Phoenix Woman on January 4, 2011

In which the new governor politely but firmly throws down:

Newly sworn-in Governor Mark Dayton was quick to issue a challenge to Republicans during his inaugural address.

“To those who sincerely believe the state budget can be balanced with no tax increase – including no forced property tax increase – I say, if you can do so without destroying our schools, hospitals, and public safety, please send me your bill, so I can sign it immediately.”

Note the mention of forced property tax increases. That was a GOP specialty during the last two decades, when they either controlled the Governor’s Mansion and one of the two legislative houses or had a large enough minority to obstruct anything they didn’t like.

Go get ’em, Marky Mark!
