Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
The State of Minnesota is suing President Trump for ending payments that a federal judge has already ruled must be ended. Attorney General Lori Swanson’s argument: President Obama started giving us illegal payments and President Trump continued the illegal payments while Congress worked on the problem. We budgeted based on receiving illegal payments. To suddenly end the illegal payments would inconvenience us by making us live within our own means, so therefore we’re entitled to continue receiving illegal payments, forever.
It’s illegal to follow the law.
To be fair to the Attorney General, it’s how the DFL has handled budgeting for the past six decades or so.
