Letter: Green: ‘I urged legislature to take balanced approach’
Recently a citizen wrote in with concerns relating to my votes on budget bills. I’m happy to respond.
During the 2013 Legislative Session, Democrats increased government spending by 12 percent — a whopping $4 billion of your tax dollars. That’s $1,500 of additional tax burden for every man, woman, and child in Minnesota. While state government may have a surplus of tax dollars, most Minnesota families aren’t experiencing that luxury.
