"Well, it's a pretty high pretty high among even and rest center and rest in attacks committee expressed concerns about she's obviously a Democrat from new Hope. No, certainly and I My responsibility is to understand what was going to take for the state to recover a fairness of what it's going to take to get our students caught back up. This budget doesn't even meet inflationary standards of what we're asking, but it is a fact that folks at the top end of the economic scale did incredibly well. In 2020, and most of these folks are asking to pay their fair share Are they want things you're talking about is something that would be a very attractively really parents. Essentially a free summer school's very attracted to live very different programs would be federal money, state money. You need to get that done. Now you can't wait until the end of may get away. We need to do that to let parents know this is an opportunity to bring our kids back up. Our teachers have worked incredibly hard as of her parents. I'm one of them having a third grader. I'm working on astronomy today. Those types of things, but we know that what we can put some investments into this. We can bring folks and and we can start to pivot to the type of school system that we want to see. Now is the time to do that, and I'm asking the Legislature let's invest back in the school. So there's a fantastic one of zero in on the tax part of this here. There's a piece in the Star Tribune thistles written by by DJ Thais, thistles, duck duck teeth that things abductees. Doctors wrote this taxing the Richt that the rich is trickier than it seems. Okay, and so in the sea points, I'm amazed this made it to the Star Tribune. I am too. He points out that attacked the writ The tax. The rich rhetoric is nothing surprising coming from a DFL politician. So what is a bit unusual is the governor's presentation was moments after walls proclaimed that only millionaires and billionaires face to tax rises. And uncooperative reporter dared ask the question about walls is proposal for a whopping $1 a pack hike on cigarettes aren't such taxes included in his plan. Despite being among the most regressive levees of all hitting the poor, much harder than the rich. Well, yes, it goes on to say well, so they don't deny that And yet, having just finished pretty much denying that the governor was, shall we say, Incentivized? To bring out some heavy verbal artillery for further clarification. And that's when he ends up saying tobacco on Vaping taxes are about public health walls explained about behaviors. The government uses the tax code to de incentivize and what what Doug zeroes in on here is the Is the dirty secret is that it may be because hiking taxes on doing business, creating jobs and earning profits in Minnesota will dese de incentivize that behavior every tax code every bit of tax, either Incentivizes or de incentivizes behavior every single one and When you tax quote unquote, the roots and you tax these corporations, all you're doing is tax When you're they passed through those taxes, the people that have the means to they are able to pass those taxes on every time you tax. The corporation. All you're doing is taxing the customers of that corporation. Right. Every little bit of tax that all of these companies pay gets embedded into the final price of the product that you the end consumer pay. So when they talk about taxing corporations they're talking about taxing you. Talk about action because every taxes paid by an individual person. Corporations do not pay taxes and a lot of the individuals that he includes in his in his tax hike. Are individuals who are running businesses and have very small profit margins. And guess what? Ah, Lot of those businesses were closed, so you can't really generate attacks. When you don't have any product of services. You're out there, selling And the ones that got gotten took advantage of this and the ones that Wall's decreed were able to. That's a part of it to the drives me nuts like, Well, he's the big, You know, there's the big corporations in this one. And this one ridiculous editorial that will get into this, Please raise my taxes. I can afford it. It talks about the Waltons of Wal Mart, the nation's wealthiest family, and possibly the world's saw their net worth grow between June of 2017 in June, 18 at a rate of $4 million.4 million dollars. Per hour. Yeah, And what was it last year? And why was that? That wasn't Wal Mart. That was because there was anything else open for crying out loud. And then all of these mega rich, you know, multibillion dollar corporations by and large most you know, generally speaking, most of their customer base is going to be the lower end of the income spectrum. I mean, lower end and like bottom 60%. I'm not talking about the poorest of the poor. But when you talk about a target, and Amazon, a Wal Mart, you know, it's like you there we all Buy from them when you tax those Cos you're taxing their customers. It's all regressive. There's no host. There's nothing progressive about taxing corporations and businesses. When anybody with half a brain that puts a moments thought into. It knows that every one of those taxes is going to be embedded in the final cost of the product. Well, you begin to piece together sort of commentary that we've had on On the show and and getting into sort of the mind of a Tim John walls and what he believes as a progressive, you know, as as a liberal they like the way this is right now. We pointed this out. They like the fact that there are just a few big suppliers for the public at large because they don't really give a rip about the small business owner. And and so that's why the tax plan actually makes perfect sense. And is a bit of evidence, if not a lot of evidence to go and demonstrate that mentality because what does he want to do? He knows that those other businesses they're not coming back anytime soon, So he's not going to be able to get new revenue from there, so he has to get it from someplace Well, I know I'll just just Jack up the taxes on all the businesses that I did allow to go Stay open, because that's really what we want, anyhow. And at the same time we've d incentivized any of those other businesses to go on back up to go on, open back up again. It's the canceling of the keys. Don't pipeline. And the they could just go find other jobs. It's that mentality that 50 something year old person who's worked in this field all their career all their adult life, you know, just go learn a new skill. It's super easy, but that's what they believe. That's what they that's what they want, because that's what their life has been right. Because, you know, for a guy like Tim Walz or somebody else, You know, every time one of these d one of these high profile Democrats happens to lose an election, they get taken care of for a few years. Yep. Rehab their image. They go away for a little while. I get a job in a think tank or at a university or a non profit, And then they run for office again. So they don't understand why, you know, normal people Just don't just don't you go find a foundation that will fund you for three years. While you go learn new skills. How hard is that? He has me. Murphy asked him about the situation with regard to two George Floyd and what's been happening around that particular issue. Here's that exchange of Tim's young walls and has been Murphy. Another thing you need right away is the $4.2 million for public security in the wake of the Derrick Shobin trial. The former officer accused of killing George Floyd supposed to happen March 8. It may get pushed back that needs to happen right away, And also there's a really tight conversation as the capital about Who should pay and who shouldn't pay for damages in some of the civil unrest. Where do you see in color? Brian's are in this together. What we saw was we saw were not not what Republicans are saying They do not want to pay for the civil unrest. Well, when there's a flood or when we have a hostage situation, and Albert Lea, we helped do this. This was a global phenomenon that happened after the murder of George Floyd in front of people. It's certainly unacceptable.
