You know, if one really needed a better reason for a part time legislature in Michigan, all one would need to do is shine light for the pedestrian observer (that’s you, taxpayer) as to what our elected politicians do once all the campaign talk is over, and they settle into their sworn Oath’s of office.
What are we talking about? Let’s take one particular individual to use as example of what idiocracy occurs, which is innocuous in appearance but, when they all use the same topical claptrap while shirking actual duties such as, oh say, allowing roads to deteriorate and crying poor?
Well, this is the government we get in Lansing.
Not only do some of us have long memories but, we are also completely tired of our tax dollars funding Lansing’s stupidity.
So let me get this straight: One of the pat arguments we get from the pro-tax hike, crony capitalist/Rick Snyder-side of Prop 1 is that there is no Plan "B", ostensibly because of the fact that there is allegedly nothing to cut.
Yet, here I see several examples of elected official(s) coming across as more of a used car salesman, than taking their fiduciary responsibilities of their office even remotely seriously.
I'm still waiting for the part where he says, "Now, don't you buy no ugly truck!"
It's amazing the likes of Rep. Gamrat and apple-polishing brown-nosers like Rep. Garcia don't get along very well.
A Part-Time legislature is looking better and better in the days leading up to May 5th.
