Republican Party of Minnesota to Kelliher: What Now, Margaret?

St. Paul- Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Tony Sutton today issued the following statement regarding the Minnesota Supreme Court’s unallotment ruling.

“The Republican Party of Minnesota unequivocally opposes today’s 4-3 ruling by the Minnesota Supreme Court and believes it represents the worst in judicial activism. Now the onus for balancing the budget lies squarely with Margaret Anderson Kelliher and the big spending Democrat-controlled legislature. Kelliher and the DFL failed to produce a balanced budget last year and now that failure is coming back to haunt the taxpayers of Minnesota. Raising taxes on families and businesses is the last thing Minnesotans need right now. Since Kelliher failed to balance the budget in the first place, it’s time for her to explain in detail how she plans to pay for $2.7 billion in new spending when the state is broke.”
