Minnesota Boasts Eleventh-Highest Tax Burden

It says here that Minnesota’s state and local tax burden ranks 11th in the nation. Under the DFL’s logic, that must mean that we have the eleventh-best schools, roads and infrastructure. And here I was feeling that our roads were reprehensibly poor with their annual fissures. The roads in those low-tax states must be positively lunar. It’s hard to imagine a worse freeway interchange than the automotive garrotte at 394 and 94, but with less money those low-tax states must have moats and palisades at their freeway interchanges.

And what about those public school teacher salaries? Almost top ten, baby! Geez, and I know public school teachers who actually complaint about their salary.
