…let me answer the standard-issue DFL chanting point that you read on virtually ever tweet, ad and TV ad the DFL puts out:
“The Republicans want to (do horrible things) to protect millionaires”.
Let’s settle this.
None of us gives a rat’s ass about millionaires. Bupkes. Zip. Nada.
It’s about reforming government.
It’s about stopping the DFL’s spending crazy train.
It’s about making all of those safety net entitlement programs for the elderly and children and unemployed and mentally ill sustainable for the long term. as opposed to the current fiscal time bombs they are.
It’s about making sure that public employees actually have pensions to retire on in thirty years.
It’s about having a state where we don’t have a perennial budget crisis, because the state lives solidly within and below its means – and it’s just fine, because the state is so prosperous its’ “means” are pretty darn formidable.
We oppose government sucking up any more of this state’s viability than it really needs – and by “needs”, I don’t mean “wants”, “covets” or “craves”. That means taxes on millionaires and the poor – including the DFL’s screechingly regressive gas and cigarette taxes.
