Teacher’s Union Begs For Surplus Cash; Asks Minnesotans To “Pay Their Fair Share”
With the state government’s announcement of a $7.7 billion surplus last week comes the usual suspects begging for more money. Chiefly among them is Education Minnesota, the teacher’s union for the state and unofficial arm of the DFL party.
Very shortly after the announcement, the union released a call to action on Facebook:
On Education Minnesota’s website is a form that readers can use to forward their message to state legislators. In this message to legislators, the teacher’s union also asks legislators to ensure Minnesotans “...pay their fair share” in taxes.
Remember when I said Education Minnesota is an unofficial arm of the DFL? This all but solidifies it. What does rigging the tax code against Minnesotans have to do with advocating for teachers?
Clearly, there’s more to their agenda here. The left-wing activists and legislators are looking to pour more money into state government to fund their radical agendas.
In fact, some legislators have already openly talked about tax hikes even with this historic surplus. When will it be enough?
Minnesotans could use this money back in their pockets.
