T-Paw weighs in

Posted at 8:58 AM on July 1, 2011 by Jon Gordon (2 Comments)

Former Minnesota governor and current presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty is chiming in on the budget impasse. From Capitol View:

"Both in Washington, D.C., and in St. Paul, the Democrats continue their thirst for more spending and more taxes, and that's not the right direction for Minnesota and that's not the right direction for our country. The Democrats are the ones that are driving the finances toward the cliff."

Read Capitol View for a DFL response to T-Paw.

How much money does Pawlenty have or make is he in the top bracket that the taxes would apply to. Everyone has a motivation. Dayton from my understanding is also a very wealthy individual and is willing to be taxed why not Pawlenty. Is this about greed?

Excuse me Mr Tim Pawlenty, but it was your bad management that drove our Minnesota finances to the edge of the cliff! You used one-time surplus dollars and delayed payments to disguise how much debt you were amassing for the state!
