The hidden beauty here is more about what two concurring voice votes in five days says about the psychological impact that the constitutionalist insurgency is having on the blueblooded elites of the party's old guard than about anything else.

To do what is right, draw a line in the sand, and save the Michigan Republican party in the process.
Each of these representatives put their mark on the dotted line for eventual higher federal taxes, Obamacare, and expanding reliance on a bigger government. They are Republicans, who have sought and won the trust of those who believe in a LIMITED government, and support a platform that says Republicans will do so. Many wouldn't even be in office if it were not for the grass roots conservative revolution in 2010; a group that is hardly out of the picture.

We know of a couple who have said they will change their votes. They are not responding to threats of activists, but realize after making their choices, that they have been lied to along the way by the governor, the Lt governor and lobbyist after lobbyist looking for that next windfall on the taxpayer dime. Help the rest of them get the information they need.

We talk so often here about the things that are going wrong in Lansing and what the tax-and-spenders are up to that I think it's important to check in with the good guys from time to time to get their take on the issues facing taxpayers and the legislature today.
The GOP House minority continues to sponsor and introduce legislation, to work behind the scenes and to try to figure out some sort of positive solution to this tax-hike / budget mess.
We rarely hear about that in the MSM.
Being a member of a legislative minority makes it tough to garner headlines. But they're working hard and they're trying to make a difference.
