Good News

Congratulations to Governor Pawlenty, who found his veto pen, and used it to stop the DFL from indulging in the taxing reflex.  Now comes the hard part - find a budget that is smaller, but honest and responsible.

Count on gamesmanship in the legislature to try to wring "revenue enhancement" concessions from Gov. Pawlenty.  As Marty Siefert has pointed out recently, we have an opportunity to actually shrink Minnesota government this budget cycle.

The staredown has started.  Let's not blink.
