Dayton's Daydream

I see where our Governor D.B. (Dim Bulb) Dayton has hatched a scheme to raise employment in Minnesota. He proposes selling $775 million in bonds to finance a whole slew of make work jobs.

Now let me see if I have this straight, he wants to sell bonds to cover his expenditures for building things that we do not need, with money we do not have so we can get out of debt. He wants a new minor league ball park, $27 million, that must be bonded, because we do not have the cash in our treasury to pay for it now. He seems to feel that spending money that we do not have, even if it is future taxes, is better then being financially responsible. Evidentially, like any good liberal, he thinks we can spend our way into prosperity. Do you have any idea how much $775 million will cost your children and/or grandchildren by the time these bonds reach maturity?

You will notice that nowhere in his daydream has provisions been made for the introduction of one job that will manufacture any product that can be sold and bring money into the state, anything that will bring long term employment and pay taxes, just spend. I think that old D.B. been taking lessons from Barack Hussein.
