Yesterday’s Special Session was the perfect opportunity for Governor Dayton and the Democrats to undo a slew of damaging tax increases signed into law last legislative session.
And why not? Even Democrats know the new tax increases will hurt Minnesota families. Bipartisanly, Republican and Democrat legislators introduced 47 bills in the Special Session to undo the new taxes on warehousing, telecommunications, commercial equipment repairs, and more.
For weeks the Governor had been asking people to submit bad policies that should be undone as part of his "Unsession" idea. Yet in the Special Session, when offered strong bipartisan support to undo these and other misguided new taxes, Governor Dayton and Democrat leaders refused to listen!
Why not, indeed.
