I support Mark Dayton very much - I really, really want him to hold his ground and not to blink.
Today IN WASHINGTON DC this happened:
Today, the Senate is expected to vote on a “Sense of the Senate” bill that says taxpayers earning $1 million or more each year should “make a more meaningful contribution to the deficit-reduction effort.” In response, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, declared yesterday that it’s “rather pathetic” to ask millionaires to share more of the pain. A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) commented, “Apparently, nothing irritates Republicans more than the prospect that millionaires and billionaires might be asked to share in the burden of deficit reduction.”
Sound familiar - it should - it's the exact same issue MN has with the MN GOP - the exact same issue.
If Mark Dayton says no - the whole damn GOP house of cards will fall down - I believe that.
All it takes is for one person to say NO! with conviction and not blink.
