With 12 days to go before the end of the session, the Republicans still haven't produced a balanced budget based upon real world numbers. Instead, the Republicans pushed a bill through the Minnesota Senate for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. The bill passed on party line votes with only Sen. Leroy Stumpf (DFL-Plummer) voting with the bigots. Sen. Scott Dibble (DFL-Mpls) asked the bill's author "what problem does this constitutional amendment solve?"
