The St. Paul City Council opposes the half-cent sales tax increase for Ramsey County that would fund the county's portion of the cost of a Vikings stadium in Arden Hills. I'd like to chalk that up to fiscal sanity, but there's no reason to believe that.
The real reason they oppose the sales tax increase is that it makes goods and services in St. Paul among the most expensive in the metro area. And that's because the government in St. Paul is already taxing the snot out of its residents. They'd rather you not think about that.
