Defying the wishes of the governor, DFL senators Friday afternoon amended a transportation finance bill to include increases to gasoline and sales taxes for state highways and metro transit.When **Mark Dayton** thinks you're raising taxes too much, it's like the comparison that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog makes at about 3:20 in this clip, which is needless to say NSFW:
The move, if it survives further Senate and House action and resistance by Gov. Mark Dayton, would raise the gasoline tax by 5 cents a gallon and increase the metro sales tax for transit by a half-cent.
Seriously, folks -- go work on that gay marriage stuff instead. Really.
