GOPers have been the naysayers, claiming they need to protect the highest income folks. In contrast Democrats say the common folks have been paying more than their fair share of taxes long enough, in fact, bailing out the rich so they do not have to pay a slight increase.

The GOP caused the Minnesota shutdown, refusing to compromise. The result was that our state got a much worse credit rating. Clearly, the GOP is interested in social legislation more so than economic. That is, in part, why your property taxes and rent went up.

What does it mean for us here? Democrats like Ward, Stevenson, Doty, Klobuchar, and Nolan will move the state and nation forward, including everyone, not just the top one-percenters.

So, let us remember in November.
