Minnesota's in the Middle

All things Minnesota politics

I don't get it?

I understand Pawlenty's and the Republicans oppisition to the gas tax, but as gas prices increase is it not time to base the tax on the price rather then consumption? Offset any increase that creates by lowering the sales tax. Of course we all know how the game works, changing the tax struucture is always a tax increase even if the end result is decreased tax revenues.

Overall it looks like the session was as close to a success as you can expect, but we lost all the good fiscal conservitive in the last few years, and thus we see more politics in where the money goes and less principal. The College tuition aid is out of controll, and all it does is drive up the cost.
