Bly wants to bring checks and balances to Minnesota House
Government is set up with checks and balances. When one party is in total control, this does not happen. With no opposition, the majority party can spin the information to promote its successes.
Take for instance the $2.2 billion increases in taxes the Democrats rammed through two years ago. Their spin? Only the most wealthy have to pay a "few dollars more." The truth is small businesses are hurting with the pass-through entity income where profits on a small business must be counted on the owner's personal income tax, often raising them to the highest tier in taxes.
The estate tax will take 45 percent to 48 percent of a deceased person's accumulated wealth. My opponent recently reiterated support of this death tax. I have a problem with penalizing those who have worked hard to leave an inheritance to their family.
Finally, my opponent suggests only the rich have Social Security taxed. The truth is if a person older than 65 receives $1,000 in Social Security, they only need to earn $19,500 to have their Social Security benefits become taxable in Minnesota.
We must prioritize state needs with input from those responsible for implementing state policies and prioritize spending based on those needs. I will work hard to bring people together to find solutions to the issues facing our state. Vote Breanna Bly on Nov. 4.
