Read this: Though the pundits of austerity continued to scream tax relief Minnesota’s governor Mark Dayton did just the opposite. When he “took office in 2011, Minnesota had more than a $6 billion dollar deficit and an unemployment rate of 7%. Today, Minnesota’s unemployment rate is now below 4% and they have a budget surplus of over $1.2 billion dollars.” But he didn’t follow the Grover Norquist plan. How was that possible and who is this liberal genius anyway? Actually, “he isn’t a class warrior driven by a desire to get back at the 1 percent — Dayton is a billionaire heir to the Target fortune. It wasn’t just a majority in the legislature that forced him to do it”. But the bottom line is, it seems to be working and so far the sky has not fallen. Sometimes liberal polices get a chance to show they can work.
