    To be fair, they're at least still entertaining the idea of raising income taxes on the wealthy and (gasp!) following through on the campaign theme that got Dayton and the DFL legislature elected in the first place, but consider me skeptical.  I suspect the DFL's fragile coalition will have enough nervous nelly members stared down by the Chamber of Commerce to deny them a majority on taxing rich, especially in the House.  In the end, I suspect only the regressive stuff passes and the DFL will look like complete frauds in the process.
