Michigan congressman expects post office to travel through time for his constituents.
We all know they do it.
But it hardly makes it right. ‘Franking’ has been used by sitting politicians to expressly ‘inform’ constituents, and cleverly advantage their public budget in electioneering efforts. Incumbency has its privileges. Congressman Dan Benishek, holding true to DC assimilation, doesn’t even hide the abuse in any meaningful way.
In a recent ‘Franking’ mailer, his announcement of an upcoming event celebration arrives far too late for those he supposedly wishes to inform.
Former speaker comments from the political graveyard of deleted PR Pieces.
Yeah, the interwebs are forever.
Then Speaker Jase Bolger had something to say about fixing the roads. Going to the taxpayers to fund or cover for the malfeasance of our MDOT and legislative road committees was not the top priority of the sometime Snyder enabler Jase Bolger, right?
Given the lame duck performance resulted in nothing positive for Michigan’s burdened taxpayers, it’s not surprising that their ONE opportunity to solve a real problem was passed along for the taxpayer to share in the blame. A bad package with the promise of pain for the (even with the renewed EITC) poor, and particularly the middle class once again. (Yes, shameless populism – sue me)
Indeed, this is one of the few times we had no disagreement with the speaker.
