For the past month, Democrats have talked the Trump/GOP economy down, saying that it’s only helping the richest 1%. That’s been debunked thoroughly but now we have proof thanks to Brian Bakst’s article on Minnesota’s oversized surplus.

In his article, Mr. Bakst reports “Minnesota tax collections soared well past expectations for April, according to a tally released Friday. The Department of Minnesota Management and Budget reported revenue that was $489 million above what had been projected to come in. The excess is 17 percent above expectations for the month. April is when most income tax payments are made, so this update is more pivotal than others.”

This is vitally important for several reasons. First, it’s proof that President Trump’s policies are working. Exceeding expectations by 17% in the biggest collection month of the year is a big deal. Next, it’s a death blow to Gov. Walz’s and the DFL’s tax increases. With the economy growing in spite of Gov. Dayton’s and the DFL’s policies, it’s safe to say that we don’t need another $12,000,000,000 in tax increases.

We’re already running a $1,000,000,000+ surplus. Minnesota’s Rainy Day Fund has $2,500,000,000 in it. With the economy roaring, why should Minnesota plan on a downturn or recession? That’s as stupid as moving to Hawaii and bringing your winter parka from Minnesota.

The question for Gov. Walz and the DFL now is whether they want to spend Minnesota into oblivion or whether they’re willing to act like adults for a change. At this point, I’m not sure whether the DFL’s special interests will win out or whether the people of Minnesota will win out.

What I’m certain of, though, is that the GOP is consistently aligning with the people of Minnesota. That’s a stark contrast with Gov. Walz and the DFL.

    More tax revenue just means the socialists have more of our money to spend once the GOP caves on the big tax increases.

  • Gary Gross says:

    Actually, I’m impressed with the Republicans’ steadfast opposition to raising any tax increases. That fight is over. Period.

  • Chad Q says:

    Once a special session is called and then the government is shutdown, the MSM will make it all the GOP’s fault and they’ll cave like they have in the past. Simple as that. I really hope they don’t but I’m not holding my breath. The DFL has already framed this as the GOP is against health care, kids, and seniors.

    Gazelka said this morning it isn’t the increased spending but the tax increases that gets him. We’ll if you have increased spending, you’re going to have to pay for it. I’m against double digit spending and tax increases!

  • Gary Gross says:

    With the MSM’s credibility in the shitter, I’m not even slightly worried about them.
