What a mess.

Millions of dollars have been lost in Minnesota since the GOP became the majority party in the Minnesota House and Senate. It had been 38 years since they held the majority. The way the public is reacting, it will probably be another 38 years or longer before they gain the majority again. Hundreds of thousands of Minnesota residents have suffered immensely since the GOP gained control. Millions of dollars that could have flowed into the Minnesota budget have also been lost. The whole country is watching what is happening in Minnesota and it sends a message for 2012, as to what residents could possibly expect if the GOP would gain control of the Presidency and/or both houses of congress in Washington.

The Minnesota House and Senate could very well give President Obama another four years in the White House.
