HB 5696 passes 106-2. via mLIVE
"It's a huge tax credit for working families," said Rep. Andrea LaFontaine, a Republican from Columbus Township in St. Clair County who is sponsoring the bill. "It had large bipartisan support. I do think it was long overdue."
Translating Wurfel: You people are cRaZy. You all should know by now that Rick doesn't play like that. Besides, letting the little folks keep more of their money cuts too deeply into the private property tax break he wants for his special interest corporate cronies.
Vote YES on 5.

One of the most disturbing things I have ever had to do in my life is pull the lever for Rick Snyder.
Yeah, I know. The bootlickers in Lansing are saying that "Gillman has turned RightMichigan.com into a hate Republican site, and right now we need all the help we can get! What is the matter with those guys, going on like that in the middle of the most important election of our time?!"
Anyhow, Rick Snyder is not running for anything right now.
Yet he still needs to be held accountable for his actions. And even inaction. Given that Michigan started out the process of this election cycle as a slightly leaning Democrat (Obama) state, and now is considered (once again) a lost cause by the ongoing Republican presidential campaign, we should be a little concerned for the down tickets. THIS will not help:
"For the first time, the Governor, on the record, has confirmed he will not call out the president by name.Excuse me, say what?
Hedging bets? Trying to get him to capitulate on the bridge-trade pact? Is there a new Ardesta sales agreement with the feds for embryo oil? Whats going on?
Snyder, and those who support him are a disgrace to the Michigan Republican party.
