    And the truth is finally seeping out from Lansing.

    Lt. Gov. Brian Calley desperately wanted to vote on the tax issue but the only way that could happen was with a 19-19 vote. Then his vote would provide the historic 20th vote for passage.

    But here was the rub. Ms. Whitmer was threatening to send some of her Democrats off to Ohio or some other exotic locale. Then they could not vote and there would be no tie for Calley to break.

    Somebody went to her with this suggestion: If you provide all of your votes, we will buy down the governor's cut to education which was originally pegged at a hefty $470 per pupil.

    Whitmer was intrigued and long story short, she got an agreement from the other side to shave the cut down to around $245.

    A 48% giveaway just so Lt. GoverNerd and GoverNerd had something to bray about among their crony MI-GOP "Me-too Republicans".

    Theblogprof nails it.

    And here in Michigan a tiny minority of only 12 Democrats in the MI Senate threatened to go AWOL here as well. The only difference between Wisconsin, Indiana and here in Michigan is our large population of RINOs in the legislature, leading to the GOP actually acquiescing to Democrat demands.

    Yessiree, as I wrote before... pathetically limp wristed.

    To the recycling bin with all of them that went along with this crap.
