Deficit leads to questions about newly approved amendment

Now that Minnesota is facing a $5.2 billion budget deficit, many are questioning a sales tax increase approved last month to fund the arts and outdoors.

No way. Idiots vote for a tax increase in the middle of a recession, then question their own wisdom one month later, when they realize recessions hurt.

Some lovely politicians are already looking for a way to subvert the amendment for their own pet projects.

Some at the State Capitol said with major budget cuts looming taxpayers should be paying for more important things like education or healthcare.

"We're saying that these things have a priority now than basic healthcare for human beings and school teachers and the like," said House Minority Leader Marty Seifert.

Who didn't see that coming? Oh, sorry. The majority of voters didn't see that coming.

Here's an idea: Don't give the government more power! It never works as promised!
