AFP has made it easier to reach your legislators
State lawmakers are considering a provision of President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that would expand Medicaid to single, childless adults up to 133% of the poverty level. Doing so would add around half a million additional people to the Medicaid rolls at a cost to Michigan taxpayers of $1.3 billion.

A brand new week and the same old news. John Cherry continues to travel the state, hosting faux "town hall" meetings, pretending to talk about an economy that has imploded on his watch to such a staggering degree it makes national recession statistics seem something to aspire to. 'If ONLY we were ONLY as bad off as the rest of the nation... which is going through the worst economic turmoil since the Carter administration.'
Alas, we're not that lucky. We're stuck for the next year and a half with Jennifer Granholm and John Cherry's particular brand of executive performance and if we're not on our toes, tossing everything we've got behind an alternative... ANY freaking alternative this election cycle, we'll be getting another four years of stories like these...
The Detroit News really knows how to be an encouragement on a Monday morning as it quantifies factory job losses during the Granholm-Cherry administration's control of Lansing, and it's a staggering number to boot. Try 950,000. Between late 2000 and 2010 almost 1 million blue collar jobs are expected to have disappeared.
The national recession, folks in other states remember better than us, actually started in 2007. In other words, Lansing had this state in the ICU before the rest of the Country caught a sniffle.
