Representative Hansen and the DFL Broke Their Major Promises From 2006 When They Voted in 2007

  • There was no property tax relief. In fact, property taxes went up with the DFL in control.
  • There was only the smallest amount of funding for "all-day kindergarten" in some areas, when they had promised "ALL-DAY K STATE-WIDE" in 2006.
  • There was almost no expansion of government health insurance to "Cover All Kids" because the House DFL preferred to expand eligibility and benefits for welfare by 18% in the next two years and 35% in the following two years.
  • They did not repeal the "Granny Tax" on seniors in nursing homes who paid for their own care with private insurance or personal assets. In fact, they voted to kill that promise.
  • They lied about boosting state aid for public schools, giving schools a 3% increase over two years while raising the Legislative budget by 17.8% and the welfare budget by 18% in the next two years and 35% in the following two years.
