Letter to the editor:

To the editor,
I agree Minnesota does not need a tax increase in response to Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen’s letter, “No need for tax increases with a surplus,” (Dec. 19). But it does need tax reform.
A good place to start is to adopt a needed modest increase in the gas tax and a cut in the real estate tax by increasing school aid and establishing a subsidy to low-income people to purchase basic health insurance so they can afford to have adequate healthcare.
