How My State Rep Thinks..

27 01 2013

Government spends money so that the economy can be stimulated and money can
be made. You have to spend money at the macro level to make it work. This
is different at the household level. The private sector creates money by
pulling it out of thin air.~David Bly…

Pretty much explains his big government, socialist leanings.

Reason #5: Stop The Incompetence. Stop Mark Dayton.

Dayton’s incompetence has created problems that will only continue if given a second term. Considering all the failed policies Dayton has passed, this one was downright horrifying.

Reason #5: Signed a law making it harder to investigate abuse reports

The Dayton administration issued guidance to local child protection services and social workers in 2012 and then passed it into law in 2014. This policy made it harder to investigate reported cases of abuse. All the while, in Minnesota 71% of child maltreatment cases are screened out and not investigated.

  1. “The Legislature overwhelmingly approved a bill that forbids county child protection agencies from considering past abuse reports that were rejected when deciding whether to investigate a new report.” (Star Tribune, 9/8/14)
  2. “The state’s top child protection official wants to scrap a law her…

Stop The Incompetence. Stop Mark Dayton.

The election is 6 days away and it’s important you know the pattern of incompetence Democrat Mark Dayton has brought to Minnesota.

Reason #6: Crushing business and jobs in Minnesota

Over the last four years, Democrat Mark Dayton has imposed policies that are crushing business and jobs in our state.

  1. “Dayton signs $2.1 billion tax bill into law.” (Star Tribune, 5/23/13)
  2. “Each of these is undesirable tax policy. They build hidden taxes into the prices consumers pay for goods and take a hidden toll on employee compensation in the affected industries.” (Star Tribune, 8/13/13)
  3. Dayton made it clear mining jobs on the Iron Range are not a priority when he said, “The minerals aren’t going anywhere.” (Mesabi Daily News, 10/4/14)
  4. Dayton appointed 3 members of the Public Utilities Commission that voted 3-2 to delay the Sandpiper…

But how about the WSJ? Headline story about the impact of “cheap”$3/gallon gas, and today posted gas prices rise 20 cents to $3.20/gallon.
Here’s a Heard On The Street story with a twist for you. Farmers are seething over corn prices down from $7/bu to $3/bu and beans from $15 to under $10/bu. Ouch! And farm auctions in the Midwest suddenly being cancelled as bids don’t reach sellers minimums.
Tie this in with the locomotive shortage. Local story in MN has taconite companies trucking taconite to Lake Superior. Locomotives pulled to haul oil trains. Other local stories have coal fired electric generating plants in the Midwest closing to save stockpiles for winter, with many stockpiles down 40%. And Central Valley Co-op of Owatonna saying they can’t get half the Canadian potash needed to be imported by spring scheduled due to the locomotive shortage.
Now put two…

  3. “Mark Dayton says he wasn’t aware that projections of how much revenue new forms of charitable gaming would generate for the Vikings Stadium were developed with input from the gambling industry.” (Pioneer…
