News flash: States that govern according to conservative precepts – especially cutting taxes to spur growth – are doing better than “progressive” states. Much, much better. And yep, even government revenues benefit.
In the meantime, “closing the deficit” with taxes rather than growth is dragging “progressive” states down. And that’s presuming the tax hikes actually close the deficit, which is a dodgy proposition, given how tax hikes crush economic growth.
Question: Which example do you suppose the MN DFL is emulating as they cackle madly over their word-processors today, cranking out bills by the pound?
