Think “starving the beast” is the answer? Think again.
Business needs working government.
We are seeing an unprecedented failure of government to act like adults and get stuff done. Last week, the Minnesota Secretary of State sent out this emailed memo, announcing that the Minnesota legislature’s failure to pass a budget means the Secretary of State office has to close July 1 if no budget passes.

Our American business climate depends on the rule of law and smart, efficient government services. Not only would this seriously dampen Minnesota business, but it is also a banana republic blemish on our capitalist system. Here is the memo from the Secretary of State – I wrote in just a few of the ways this can hurt.
