Hehe....You think the stadium needs public support, but won't pass. I think it's a bad investment, but will pass.

Guess that makes clear that whatever we might disagree on, we're both pessimists on government ever doing the correct thing.

[grin1]



Ha! Very true, old man Wade.. Very true.

Update: The bill has gone through what seems like 6 or 7 different senate committees.. Recently breezing through the first few. Tonight it saw what was predicted a very VERY tough senate taxes committee. After going past their vote deadline by over an hour and after almost recessing with out a vote, the taxes committee leader reconvined the group and basically stated "WE WILL VOTE TONIGHT!" And after a few more attempts by the trolls of MN's senate to push the bill to more committees (this time to the judicial committee) they voted to push the bill to the Senate floor without recommendation. The bill was passed with a 7-6 vote. And barely was passed, as at one point while roll calling the votes were 5-1 against the bill. I'm still sceptical, but the bill's author, Sen. Julie Rosen has stated to a few sources that she has the votes to pass it. We'll see Sunday, when the Senate will vote on this bill.

I was pissed at myself when I posted that. I went to edit the post above it and apparently clicked on quote. That was what happens when I post after 3 hours of rest sandwiched between a 14 hour shift and a 12 hour shift.

If you trust politicians to do what is right you will get F-ed in the end.

Quote:
The big push at Minnesota's Capitol to pass a public subsidy for a new Vikings stadium stalled Tuesday, as the proposal got snared in the partisan politics that have defined state government under a Democratic governor and Republican legislative majorities.

The prospect of impending House and Senate floor votes on the $975 million stadium plan appeared to dissolve after Republican legislative leaders unexpectedly debuted a brand-new financing plan that differs significantly from the proposal negotiated by Gov. Mark Dayton's administration, the Vikings and the city of Minneapolis. GOP leaders called for shrinking the proposed $400 million state contribution by an unspecified amount, eliminating the stadium's roof and paying for it with state general bonds rather than tax money from an expansion of legal gambling.

The proposal earned withering scorn from Dayton even before the GOP unveiled it. The Democratic governor called a news conference to blast Republican leaders after hearing third-hand of what he called "secret meetings" with the Vikings. He described their proposal as "fooling around" and demanded up-or-down House and Senate votes on the original plan.
