    Yep!! At least according to nearly 2/3 of the voters in Minnesota who support the Dem Governor's plan.

    So? We need them to be focusing on jobs... More tax revenue. Repubs are wayy out of touch on this.

    figures, I just hear on fox news the teachers unions don't think they should have to contribute to their pensions. they've been running around town begging the business community to fill in the gap which is billions. Never mind the business community has to pay for their own employee's medical and retirement needs.. what a bunch of wankers you democrats are. big old sugar tit suckers.

    These R's got elected so someone had to have voted for them.

    The part that I thought was amusing was that so many people polled think that someone else should pay more as long as those in the polled majority pay NO more.

    I wonder what state the upper 2% will move to after this travesty is finally passed.

    Maybe they can move to indiana to help run the companies that are moving from Illinois to Indiana.
