Blown Away.....

Fiscal experts say Michigan could have $434 million less than expected to spend on K-12 schools and other government services in the next budget year.
The financial trouble is here despite last year's increases in the state's personal income and business taxes to balance a budget deficit. Reasons include the national economic slowdown's effect on Michigan's economy and fewer people purchasing cigarettes and buying and selling homes.
The revenue forecast comes from the House Fiscal Agency. Another will come Wednesday afternoon when a legislative committee hears from Senate analysts.
Fiscal experts and Governor Jennifer Granholm's administration will meet Friday to agree on how much tax revenue state government can expect to collect.
//////////
Should read; Reasons include a moronic socialist governor who raises taxes for our core manufacturing businesses in a declining economy.
So, as I understand the state after enacting her huge business tax increase is actually collecting a full 1/3 less than expected AT THIS POINT.
Taxing an already dying economy even more has had the obvious (to all but her) effect of further stifling our economy and failing to balance our budget as she in her infinite genius would have us believe.
One would think that after this failure she would realize we need to reduce spending and taxes on business to get this state out of the toilet. I'm NOT going to give her the benefit of the doubt.
I am predicting, she will raise our taxes again in an effort to balance our bloating budget once again.

For his achievement of a balanced budget without tax hikes, Governor Engler earns our highest marks. In a year when some 30 states legislated a record $17 billion in new taxes, Governor Engler opted instead to reduce spending. That, plus the Governor's pursuit of a ballot initiative to cut property taxes coming on top of a legislated property tax "freeze" shows that so far, he is not content to simply stop the growth of government in Michigan. He wants to reverse it a long overdue objective we sincerely hope he doesn't abandon.
