Hard working Minnesotans, like you, have worked your entire life paying into social security. You paid taxes while you were working, and now the MN government wants to tax you again, that's not ok with me. I want to eliminate the state income taxes on Social Security so our senior citizens can enjoy their retirement with one less thing to worry about.
Getting older does get more expensive as incomes are often reduced after retirement. Add inflation to the mix, and your fixed income becomes even more limiting. Even though you may be retired, Big Government would still try to take more of your money through property taxes. You worked hard all your life to earn a good living and make a cozy home. Your retirement years should be less stressful and more enjoyable. That's why I'm in favor of freezing property tax rates for seniors at age 65, and also for people who owned the same house for over 30 years.
