Taxed Too Much Follow Up

That big ol tax increase a hard sell in Lansing all of a sudden

Report from Joan Fabiano

Despite the best efforts, arm twisting, promises and amendment upon amendment) of Gov. Snyder, Senate majority leader Randy Richardville (term limited) and Speaker of the House Jase Bolger (term limited) to put lipstick on a pig the legislature could not  muster the votes Thursday for a big tax increase. The Senate has adjourned until July 16 returns August 13, but doesn’t resume the regular schedule until September 9.

In fact it was high drama under the Dome as Snyder, Richardville and Snyder huddled trying to find a way to “get er done” including keeping the Senators in session long into the night on Tuesday to wear them down however, time after time the big tax increase was rejected.

    After almost 4 years it appears that Patrick Colbeck is still supporting bills that are "true and good" and holding off the less then true. There is still at least one man
    holding off fire and brimstone!

    Don't be so hard on those Republicans. They're just trying to mimic their big sister undocumented democrap elders in the Boehner/McConnell US Legislature. Growin" up is hard these days.
