Granholm has the guts to tell the schools to consolidate to save money, and yet they want to raise our taxes. They need to start living within their means like the people who PAY the taxes and their wages! I'm tired of giving Granholm a blank check for her broken social programs and her trips to Germany and Japan to recuit jobs for the east side of the state!

They are going to stick it to the people of Michigan for as long as they can, they know their time is short. And I definitly agree with Neecer, Stop sending Jenny on all these paid vacations!! How much are those costing the taxpayers? Can't she video confrence?

What I don't understand, is that the state is asking for more of what they know their people don't have. Where are the jobs, and why are so many people leaving the state. It's because our auto insurance, property insurance, and taxes are so darn high and our wages so low. Granholm needs to go back to Canada - maybe they'll elect her there so she can destroy something of theirs.

Recall Granholm and bring Devos in. If she raises property taxes, everyone better save up on extra large cardboard boxes to live in under the bridges!

Is it just me or does it appear as though someone is trying to intentionaly clear out the State of Michigan? think about it people are leaving by the thousands and now this raise taxes-take the little bit of money from the hard workers here in Michigan. When we vote people in office they are suppose to be for the people, well it appears J.G is against the people of Michigan. All the traveling that would certainly relieve some of the debt, mabey they should go back to the good ol days and set up office in their homes and work from home- it would save our State alot of money. I think many in Lansing just need the BIG OL BOOT-GET A CLUE AND FOR CRYING OUT LOUD WALK AWAY QUIETLY.

Well, does anyone think they may be dragging their feet to today to make “Bigger news” so we wouldn't notice that GM announced that they will be closing ANOTHER plant here in Michigan.

Okay... Sing it with me...(tune of It's Beginning To Look A lot Like Christmas)

It's beginning to look a lot like FLINT NOW...
Everywhere you go
Take a look at the five and ten; it's robbed once again
With gangs and guns our hopes are running low...

It's beginning to look a lot like FLINT Now,
Jobs we have no more,
But the saddest sight to see is the foreclosure that will be
On your own front door.....

Citizens of New Pittsburgh need to act now and as one. Best place to start would most likely be Macomb County Commissioner Leon Drolet. He will find the necessary funding.

We need to recall them all! Every single two faced politician that pomised the world only to take it for themselves. Every last one that voted for the tax hike instead of goverment administrative expense tax cut!

She should be in prison for her crimes ! How come we did not get to vote on this tax hike anyway? We are the ones that voted to bring the sales tax to 6%. What has changed now to allow this to happen?
She is going to turn this state into a dust bowl..... I can already see the tumble weeds rolling down I-75. Whats next? One big Canadian landfill called Michigan?

Granhom'd latest Radio advertisment was blaming Engler? What was she doing in office the last five years? She has had plenty of time to take responsibility and prepare for the States problems. She is not new to Political life. She claims to have a Plan for MI? She promised to blow us away! Granholm Plan is to blame past adminstration and the President. Granholm is a FAILURE! We the tax payers are going to pay for her failed Plan!
