The Issues

Jobs in Minnesota

We all want an effective and efficient government that does a good job of providing core government services. This requires tax revenue. However, the tax collection takes money out of the private economy, thereby negatively impacting economic growth. Some kinds of taxes have greater negative impact than others. In order to achieve our objective, we must determine the level of spending necessary to provide core government services, and not be afraid to cut programs that are failing or can be handled by the private sector.
