    Boy, its a good thing the house Republicans have redundant measures in place.

    Given The governor's HARD SELL of a tax increase, it was a relief to have the house majority leader point out that he thinks "the taxpayers are the last place to look" for money needed to fix our roads.  But the video as seen in one of our postings just up and disappeared!

    Oh My.

    Did I mention redundancy?

    Indeed.  The "LAST PLACE TO LOOK" is the taxpayer!  Thank you Jase!  

    Oh..  And I saved a copy back.  Just in case.

    There's a reason . . . (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    . . . that the GoverNerd campaigned his ass off to defeat the Michigan Taxation Amendment (aka, Proposal 12-5).  The Michigan Alliance For Prosperity needs to push back even harder in 2014.

    I remember back when I-375 was being constructed (none / 0) (#3)

    and there was an attempt to get away from "low cost bidder" construction techniques.  The roadbed would be thicker and the concrete would be better.  Wonder what happened?  Seems nothing ever came of that and a "rebuilt" road require significant repairs within a few years.

    But let's assume that higher quality roads are not the objective here.  Perhaps the objective is full employment of road repair crews.  It's a minor inconvenience to truckers and tourists.  They can do what we did last summer when I-94 at Benton Harbor was essentially shut down... change routes by 60 miles.

    After all, it does insure the future of our children.  Most of them will be working on road crews instead of collecting unemployment.

    All graft for the Nerd's buddies.

    Spending tax money on things we don't want, (none / 0) (#7)

    don't need and can't afford instead of maintaining our roads.  
    Bicycle paths, fancy electronic signs, high-speed rail and 70% subsidies for area transit authorities.  
    Should the federal government be forcing the state to spend our gas taxes on these kinds of pretty petty expensive toys when our roads need major repair that we can't afford with the tax money we already pay?  
    Should the State take our road tax money and spend it on anything but roads?  
    Let's start spending our gas tax money on Michigan roads.

    Organized labor and government entities joining forces to support a TOTALLY UNNECESSARY tax hike.

    Talk about an unholy alliance.

    OABTW Jason, kudos for keeping a copy.

    It says a lot when republicans scrub anything previously posted relating to their positions.
