    expected for next year, instead of the deficit earlier projected.  You're going to start hearing those kinds of reports from states, because yes, withholding is increasing.

    The federal government withholding numbers went down, but the payroll tax holiday had something to do with that, as did the fact that no Quarterly Estimated Taxes are due after September.

    •  and AZ revenues are higher than expected (0+ / 0-)

      and have been for some months now.

      not that the hatchet-faced woman is going to put the money to any good use.

      maybe she can file a few more nuisance lawsuits...

      OK. And now we begin the part of the show where we pull out individual words and phrases of the commenter to try to determine the "real" meaning of the comment.... let the games begin.

    •  Even better! (0+ / 0-)

      The surprise announcement of a projected (subject to revision, TBA end of Feb. 2012) $870 million rebound into the black caught everybody off guard. (After this spring's knock-down fight over a $5 Billion deficit, complete with a 20-day government shutdown, EVERYBODY from Governor Dayton down to the meanest basement blogger on the GOP payroll, was braced for bad news, maybe another $1 billion shortfall.)

      But what absolutely frosts the MN GOP is that when you root through the details, the bulk of the $870mil. came from implementing 'HEALTH CARE REFORM' and Gov. Dayton's "embrace of the ACA."
      In other words, health care reform is working and is saving money.....and the GOP is livid at this brutal example of facts intruding on their fantasies.
