The Minnesota Legislature may be on break but the debate over tax cuts hasn’t paused, with the governor continuing to take heat from Republicans over what he calls “Walz Check” rebates. The governor said Tuesday in Moorhead:
“If they want to call them the “Joint House-Senate-Republican-Independent-Democrat,” whatever they want to call ’em, do that — just get the money back in people’s hands.”
Clay County Republican Party Chairman Rodney Johnson says it’s “awful presumptuous” to call them “Walz Checks” because it’s not the governor’s money:
“It’d be really a better deal all around if they would reduce taxes and quit taking so much money from us in the first place.”
Republicans say the state has been over-collecting and Minnesotans should receive permanent tax cuts.
