    The MI-GOP: Getting Our Percentage

    For a state that has seen it lose 48,539 from its labor force since January, and unemployment rising to 11.2% in August... the Party of revenue collection has chosen to pile on Michigan residents once again.

    Bills to be introduced by Republican Rep. Eileen Kowall of Oakland County's White Lake Township and Democratic Rep. Jim Ananich of Flint would move online-only retailers under the same sales tax collection laws under which brick-and-mortar businesses operate.

    "This is not a new tax, and this is not an expanded tax," Kowall said, adding the legislation would simply beef up enforcement of the existing tax.

    Not new?  Well, it's been noncollectable for the past 12 years.  So, it's new.  It's also the dumbest thing I've seen Lansing Republicans associate their names with to date.  This "bipartisan" scheme cooked up to address what Engler and Granholm wouldn't touch has all the appearances of the Republican Majority being the Party of Greed.

    Bad policy is bad politics.

    Not a surprised "wow" but wow nevertheless.

    Nice post, CS! Thanks for keeping me up to date.

    This makes me ponder anew, who can/should I get behind for potus. I wish we could have a running commentary here of the candidates, a thread where we can continually find updates and reference, all in one place.
