As noted here on RM yesterday, the opposition is out in full farce...

The main street crony action force is out.
What better way to insure higher prices, less competition, and bigger bureaucracies than to pass the so-called "MainStreet Fairness Act"?
A letter being sent today to the Michigan Congressional Delegation makes the following claims:
It is an increase in the cost of business. An increase in the complication of business. An Increase in the growth of government. An increase in prices as the big box stores and larger internet retailers regain their advantage over the mom and pop enterprises.
I have said before, that there IS a way to solve this, and for the states who collect sales tax to get their revenues, but this cluster foxtrot is not a good path. Any congressman worth his or her salt would recognize a disaster in the making for what it is.
Tyranny waits for no one. Contact your rep now.

The MiGOP chair once again screwed up an opportunity to mend fences with the conservative base.
Bobby Shostak hoping to catch some of the CPAC love fest action for Michigan Republicans makes this announcement about 86th House District Representative Lisa Posthumus-Lyons who was featured and honored as one of the Conservative Political Action Conference's (CPAC) 10 conservatives under 40. Lyons District is in Kent and Ionia Counties, and serves as the Assistant Majority Floor Leader. :
"Rep. Lyons is a tremendous leader in Michigan and she's a strong advocate of the common sense conservative policies that are resulting in Michigan's comeback."
The release continued:
" Rep. Lyons is recognized as a "Rising Young Conservative Leaders," which relates to CPAC's theme this year, "America's Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives. New Challenges, Timeless Principles."Timeless principles?
"Timeless principles" must have a meaning I am not familiar with. Perhaps its those progressive principles they call timeless. If this is the next generation of conservative, I'm out. And a note to our MiGOP, the activists you will find below the fold are just a few of those who would disagree with this blind accolade.
Very much so - Continue on below.

URGENT : Tell Matt Lori (r) You Expect Better than his Latest Attempt to Increase Regulations, Drive up Health Care Costs and Criminalize Cold Medicine!
Supposed Republican Matt Lori and his friends in the mainstream media have been blazing a trail to higher health care costs, bigger government and increased regulations this week in their fight to force you to see a doctor before you get your kid her over-the-counter cold medicine.
I said it on Wednesday, and I'll say it again today...
When daddy or mommy are considering whether or not to go grab a bottle of Triminic, Flintstones gravel throat annihilator, or one of the wildly popular alternatives to give a some relief to little Suzie with the runny nose and scratchy pipes, the last thing they should have to concern themselves with is an appointment with the family doctor. A $7 bottle of cold medication that if Michigan state representative Matt Lori has his way could cost another $60-$100.
And just how well exactly does Lori expect this sort of nonsensical spike in regulation to go over in the year of the Tea Party?
Enough is enough. Please pick up your phone now. Yes, right now. Then dial one of these numbers to reach Lori's Lansing office and tell him enough is enough:
Phone: (517) 373-0832
