Minnesota government shuts down

Gov. Mark Dayton tried to prevent it by raising revenues on "only on those earning more than $1 million a year -- an estimated 7,700 Minnesotans, or 0.3 percent of all taxpayers." State GOPers, apparently in control of the legislature said no way they would allow a tiny tax increase on rich people. So as of today Minnesota's government services are almost entire shut down and 23,000 state workers are out of work. Including, ironically the unemployment office workers.

Wonder how all those voters who bought the GOP snake oil feel about their votes now.

are they all planning on retiring instead of running for reelection? or just hoping that everyone is stupid and they manage to blame the Democrats?

They've been very successful in blaming the Dems for the problems they created so far. Why would they think they won't get away with it again? Not to mention, they've become completely unhinged and completely lost touch with reality.
