More He Said/She Said on Minnesota's Budget from NPR

Morning Edition had another piece on the standoff over Minnesota's budget. Again it gave listeners no background that would allow them to determine the validity of Republican claims that state spending is soaring out of control. As noted before, the state is spending less relative to the size of the economy than it did in the early 90s. This means that the Republicans either are unfamiliar with the state budget or they are not being honest.

Budget Honesty

I know this is Beat the PRESS, but could you cite one time the Republicans were both familiar and honest about a budget issue? Maybe the press just has not reported it.
