Rick Snyder’s Third Term

Does it matter which party is in the governor’s office?

For anyone with a brain the answer would be no.

Whitmer voiced her concerns about the bill in a letter to legislative leaders after the vote, calling it “fiscally irresponsible” and “unsustainable.” The Democratic governor called on Republicans and Democrats to come together to negotiate a compromise.

With billions of dollars in surplus funds available, GOP lawmakers in the House and Senate reached their own deal this week on the legislation. It would drop the state’s income tax rate from 4.25% to 3.9%, increase tax deductions for seniors and allow parents to claim $500 credits for each of their dependents.

As always, Michigan Recucklicans create the problems we all must still deal with.

    I remember when Mike Bishop sold his soul let this one get by him when they had the chance to lower the income tax rate back to 3.9%.

    Or when the Dirty Dozen put the kibosh on just abolishing the income tax altogether. Control of BOTH chambers. A "republican" in the Romney Bldg. How could that NOT go through.

    I appreciate the gesture, but seriously, what did they honestly expect Witless to do?
