Gov. Snyder on raising taxes: "It's ok to ask for more revenue."

The fine folks over at MCC may as well get this plan out of their heads because this state has a load of English as a second language deadbeats waiting in the wings when .FEDGOV tightens its pursestrings.
Immigrants and their U.S.-born children make up more than 40 percent of new Medicaid recipients at a cost of $4.6 billion, according to an analysis of government data.
The Center for Immigration Studies, a low-immigration advocacy group, released a report early Thursday that found both legal and illegal
immigrants[aliens] and their minor children made up 42 percent of Medicaid growth from 2011 to last year.
Part of the increased enrollment came as a result of the new healthcare law’s expansion of Medicaid to impoverished and low-income adults.
“The high rate and significant growth in Medicaid associated with immigrants is mainly the result of a legal immigration system that admits large numbers of immigrants with relatively low-levels of education, many of whom end up poor and uninsured,” the report says. “This fact, coupled with the extensive supports we provide to low-income residents, unavoidably creates very significant costs for taxpayers.”
As an aside regarding Obamacare, newly elected SML Arlan Meekhof is proving his weight in Nerd gold as to what a useless ass he’ll be for Conservatives.
Frankly, I just can’t begin to wrap my mind around the concept of Michigan’s delegation fighting anything in D.C. when they willfully turn a blind eye to sonofabitches in their own Party in Lansing, who work to implement Obama’s agenda.
A Jon Gruber production is dissected appropriately.
The recent Jonathan Gruber code blue is just too good to pass up.
It reveals so much that is wrong with the progressive mind. In that spirit we mock the liar and his personally narrated special message for all the stupid people who buy into the ACA as anything other than the worst disaster in American Health Care.
Oh and don’t forget those who voted to expand the ACA in Michigan

As if yesterday’s lobbyist funded stupidity or, being caught up in ongoing no-bid payola was not enough, Snyder takes it upon himself to trot out the state’s low-rent versions of Ron Klain, and Tom Frieden… without any further delay …the Nerd’s 1,000 beds schtick.
Flanked by Michigan Department of Community Health Director Nick Lyon and Chief Medical Executive Mathew Davis — who are leading Michigan’s Ebola response — Snyder said Michigan has launched an expansive preparedness effort though not a single case of Ebola has been detected in the state.
“Ebola is hopefully a low threat, low-risk problem in the state of Michigan, but it’s a serious one,” Snyder said. “This is an evolving situation … (and) we’re preparing to adjust as circumstances change.”
Among steps taken so far, Michigan’s Community Health Emergency Coordination Center has been activated, as well as the Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division.
The Department of Community Health has been in daily contact with the federal Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention. State health officials also have coordinated several statewide conference calls with hospitals, including a briefing on new infection control protocols released Tuesday by the CDC.
The state is working with ambulance services statewide to make sure emergency medical technicians are properly trained to transport Ebola patients, said Davis, Michigan’s chief doctor.
The CDC is developing a network of regional hospitals designated to receive Ebola patients, but has not yet named a Michigan hospital to participate, he said.
Jeez, why would that be? Mmmm, maybe just 23 beds from coast to coast.
“Whether Michigan will have a regional Ebola treatment center is a matter of ongoing discussion with the CDC,” Davis said.
Davis and Snyder urged all Michiganians to get flu shots, noting symptoms of flu could mask the symptoms of Ebola, which include vomiting, diarrhea and fever.
Flu shots? Ya, that’s the ticket (see bullet point #10).
Sleep well knowing Barack and Rick got this handled.
Slow news day. Was looking past candidate Terri I’m a Mom™ continuing to expose her lack of brain with the Common Core© crew an interesting WaPo snippet boasts of billionaires in the Team R Country Club wailing for another Willard loss.
Well, let’s recap from December, 2011:
1. Before Barack Obama trounced John McCain in 2008, McCain trounced Romney.
2. Romney couldn’t crack 50% when elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002.
3. By the end of his first and only term, he had a 34% approval rating and a 65% disapproval rating.
4. Survey USA ranked Mr. Romney’s popularity 48th out of the 50 governors.
5. The supposedly electable Mitt Romney walked away rather than face the voters – even though he had just signed the – supposedly – wildly popular and successful MassCare legislation with its mandate into law in April of that year.
6. During his time as governor, Massachusetts ranked 47th in job creation in the private sector.
First lady Michelle Obama will campaign for Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Gary Peters and gubernatorial nominee Mark Schauer at the Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts on Friday.
Why not? Rick Snyder has been campaigning for Debbie Dingell, so, good luck with that.
