The meeting is meant to be a chance for the administration to listen to the middle class, says the St. Cloud Times. We'll see if that really happens.
They're not coming to talk so much as they're coming to listen, to hear how Minnesotans are handling the economy and how they want their government to help.
"We're not just going to toot our own horn, we're going to hear how people are coping with this very tough economy," said Jared Bernstein, the task force executive director.
SC Times says they will have live video of the meeting.
