Minnesota. Screwed By the Democraps!!

Of course we were.

DFL Dumb Fucking Liberals!!

From:

Rep. Kelby Woodard (20A) – Legislative Update

Over the last two years, we can see that the policies Republicans and Gov. Dayton put in place worked. We allowed Minnesota’s economy to grow and create jobs. That $5 billion budget deficit we faced in 2011 took a dramatic turnaround and grew into a more-than $3 billion budget surplus. What was once a 7.5-percent unemployment rate is now at 5.3 percent. Just last year, 55,000 new jobs were created and 60,000 Minnesotans took a risk and worked hard to start their own business. And the best news is, Minnesota’s economy continues to improve and revenues continue to come in higher than projected.

The Democrats have chosen a dramatically different approach. This session will be remembered as the year Democrats used their one-party control at the Capitol to pass historic tax increases, raise state spending to never-before-seen levels and focus on divisive social issues. As a result, the final tax bill for Minnesotans includes $2.1 billion in new tax burdens. With these increases, Minnesota will become the fourth-most taxed state in the union. Included in these new taxes is a business services tax and…

Mom & Pop Shop Tax, New 4th tier tax: $1.12 billion by increasing income tax on top bracket by 25 percent, including small businesses. This makes Minnesota’s income tax rate the second-highest in the nation for comparative income.

Cigarette Tax: $408 million from increase of $1.60/pack (from $1.23 to $2.83).

Sales and Gift Tax: $137 million by expanding sales tax to services like warehousing and storage, IT services and telecommunications and gift tax.

Everyone pays more for necessities: Groceries like bread, milk, gas, and medical products due to warehousing tax, electric bills due to additional mandates on utility companies, health insurance due to new Insurance Exchange, new drivers’ licenses, vehicle registration, and vehicle title fees, farm equipment repairs due to new electronic and commercial repair services sales tax, and new internet purchases due to sales tax expansion.

These new taxes will be imposed on Minnesotans at a time when we are projected to enjoy an $856 million surplus in 2016-17 (before any tax increases). These taxes were imposed to increase spending by an unsustainable 8 percent.

This unprecedented growth in the budget will result in 1,300 new full-time state government jobs. Even before these new jobs are added, the Minnesota state government weighs in as the state’s largest employer with over 40,000 employees. I believe these new tax dollars would be better left in the private sector where they can be leveraged to create long term sustainable job growth for our state.

Perhaps the most heated floor discussion this session centered on a bill that leads to unionized child care providers and personal care assistants. I strongly opposed this legislation, along with the vast majority of providers themselves, newspaper editorial boards throughout Minnesota, and parents everywhere. Special interest groups, Gov. Dayton, and fellow Democrats in the Legislature were the primary drivers behind this push to treat private small business owners as state employees.

Inappropriately titled the Marketplace Fairness Act

With the White House’s full blessing, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is attempting to ram through another massive tax increase on the backs of American consumers who shop on the Internet.

And he’s doing it RIGHT NOW — under the noses of every American!

Inappropriately titled the Marketplace Fairness Act
(S. 743), this legislation would mandate that online businesses collect sales taxes for all of America’s estimated 9,600 state and local taxing authorities! The complexity to comply would raise consumer costs, while small and medium-sized businesses scramble to keep track of thousands of different tax codes to conduct business via the Web. This legislation also would empower bureaucrats to audit businesses that don’t comply — levying stiff penalties and interest on top of the tax bill!

Concern and complexity could force businesses to stop selling out of state, stunting growth and driving down the economy even further!

Buck Ofama…Killing Americans…

He needs to go away..

  • The U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be ‘senior operational leaders’ of Al Qaeda or ‘an associated force,’ the memo states
  • The U.S. government can do so even if there is no clear evidence that the American targeted is engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.
  • NBC reported the news after obtaining and releasing the memo
  • The Justice Department told MailOnline that it would not comment on the news
And remember he wants our guns…

“You can’t do a background check if a guy doesn’t have a gun to buy,” said Mike Fotia, manager at Duke’s Sport Shop in New Castle, Pa. “There’s nothing to buy.”

Or maybe with the threat of having to register guns…folks are buying them through other means….Just saying now..

The Tax Poem!!

Found here..

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table,
At which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for
peanuts anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid…

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
‘Taxes drove me
to my doom…’

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.
