Yep, our Governor's gonna tax her way out of this mess I guess, eh? So let me get this straight; people and businesses are leaving the state in a type of mass-exodus we haven't seen around here since the early 80's and Granholm's solution is to punish those of us who choose to stay and stick it out by raising our taxes? That's supposed to encourage people and businesses to stick around? That's supposed to stem the flow of emigrating Michiganders? How the did this woman get re-elected? Is it simply that she's easy on the eyes and such a smooth talker? What else can it be? She's completely clueless. I don't get it.
I love Michigan. I think it's a great place to live and raise a family. I've lived here my whole life and have never given any serious thought to leaving, but the way things are going if the right offer came along I might just entertain the idea of bolting myself. How depressing.
