Fred Upton's Committee Voting Tomorrow to Kill Obamacare "Death Panels!"
Everyone's attention is rightly focused on Michigan's big Presidential Primary today but I figured this would be as good a day as any to chime back in here at RightMichigan with some other important news that is flying way under the traditional media's radar.
Time doesn't stand still during the primaries.
See you below the fold ~

Ain't this just grand? Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry has approved use of our tax dollars for the purpose of horse consumption.
An appropriations bill that does not specifically deny USDA funding to conduct inspections of horsemeat for human consumption could allow horse processing to resume in the U.S. The Fiscal Year 2012 Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act (H.R. 2112), or the so-called "Mini-bus Bill," establishes 2012 budgets for the Department of Agriculture and several other federal departments through September 2012.
Thank you to Reps. Amash, Conyers, Huizenga, McCotter, Miller, and Walberg, who don't believe that eating Mr. Ed is a brilliant concept.

Our own long time congressman comments during the Solyndra hearing:
Rep. John Dingell (D., Mich.), midway through the hearing: "I'm still waiting to see something that makes me concerned."
Your self serving nature suits your party of choice congressman. Never mind the rush through by your fearless leader's administration of the loan application. Never mind the damage it may do to the green industries, while it demonstrates the sheer folly of investing so heavily in green tech at this point. It wouldn't affect you at all sir. A hundred years of feeding off the taxpayers, and none of this should matter to you.
But to the president it may matter. it should.
Yet even in the face of this criminal enterprise that has the president and his cronies in the spotlight, and the utter failure that his administration is in general, it somehow seems to not bother him so much either.
A new cover for the Jobs act he is touting is below the line.

Are you looking for a career change? A way to broaden your horizons? Perhaps a house in the burbs (Maryland)would be a really cool addition?
If you are from Michigan, have a desire to meet a lot of new people and serve your country, NOW is the time. A few hard workers with soul are needed in the following districts ... uh well ALL of the following districts except Congressional District #3 which is occupied by Justin Amash:
"The Budget Control Act trades $21 billion in cuts next year for a debt ceiling increase of $2.1 trillion. That's one penny in cuts for each dollar of new debt. The bill does not seriously address the drivers of the federal government's fiscal crisis. It does not improve entitlement programs.
I would personally like to thank Representative Amash for his ability to stand for something bigger than the ability to get in line with what the leader of the house desired.
Again, the Michigan Republican delegation sans one, failed to perform its duty on the most important vote of their lifetimes. They missed an opportunity to stand for a permanence of fiscal prudence.
MICHIGAN DELEGATION VOTE The complete list here
As for those Democrats who voted no, they wanted even more from Boehner. However, this president will take whatever rope he has been given and run with it.
The ONE chance you had to stop him, and you blew it.

Michigan has been diminished. Its population decimated by a combination of poor leadership in Washington, and an eight year plague in the executive office in Lansing. The economy here has been so bad, that even the illegal immigrants have been loathe to join us in our demise. Michigan's traditional resilience has not held up to past benchmarks, and has chased more of those migrant job seekers away with its oppressive business climate preventing new job creation.
Indeed, even the illegals understood that Michigan offered little hope, and was not the place to settle and raise a little anchor family. [cue little house on the prairie theme]
So they packed up their tukes, loaded up the covered wagons, and either returned over the international bridge or moved further south to other more welcoming states, ignoring their queen, our governor's pleas of "just hang on," and "the blown away part is coming." They left us for greener pastures, in a quest for survival. Other states host these 'immigrants' quite splendidly, offering both employment opportunities and even sanctuary for those weary travelers who know no international boundaries and respect no rule of law.
And by golly we are sorry to see them ..not here.
And then we lose a seat in Congress.
