Helping Out National Socialism in Michigan
The tea bag rampage in the state of Michigan roared into action hours after the election results were announced. All the normal indignities imposed by pseudo-Republican criminal looting squads began to unfold.

In no time, millions of scarce dollars from the ailing state's general fund were being funneled to campaign donors -- the billionaires and corporatist cronies one would expect to be "involved" in his election. Even FOX News found these early moves a bit premature for one of the network's favorite carrion eating ideologues.
However, amid the corporate tax cuts rolling out of the State Capitol, another, even more adolescent vestige of the tea bag agenda, was delightfully buried in the mess.

Michigan Governor Gets Mixed Reviews on Plan to Cut Corporate Taxes, but Tax Pensions
Published March 25, 2011| FoxNews.com
Michigan's new Republican governor is earning enemies and friends with his sweeping budget proposal, a plan that would slash corporate tax bills by applying a limited flat tax while making up the difference with new taxes on seniors and other groups.
AARP Michigan has been one of the most vocal critics of Gov. Rick Snyder's plan, calling it "the biggest tax increase in the history of our state." The group held a rally last week under the banner, "It's Not Fair."
Unions and Democratic officials have also come out against it, while business types claim the plan will spur growth.
Snyder's budget gambit, which came after a bill that would give him the power to intervene in local government affairs during a fiscal emergency and cancel union obligations, is setting up another Midwestern battle in the same vein as the showdown in Wisconsin over union rights.
