Issue: On May 5th Michigan voted down Proposition 1, a measure that would have changed the State Constitution, spread pork through every pore of modern bureaucracy, increased sales and gasoline taxes, and brought in an extra 2 billion in tax revenue to Lansing. All this so the state could fund $400 million in road repairs. Proposition 1 lost by about 80 to 20. The guy on relentless positive radio, who makes his living by bringing on heavy hitter guests and relentlessly smooching the seat of their pants so they will return to his show relentlessly, was relentlessly negative in his view of fellow citizens. He wondered how we will ever attract the type of workers and businesses we need when our roads are in such a disgraceful state. He’s got issues.
Solution: The State has a 53 billion dollar budget. Cut off all travel to conferences for all state employees, take away their credit cards and their their state-provided cars, cap all pension benefits for all state workers, elected and unelected, at $80.000 a year, stop holding expensive special elections in order to confuse and (if truth be told) trick voters, seek out waste and fraud in all government agencies, and stop that waste and fraud at all levels of government. I’ll bet that out of 53 billion dollars you can find 400 million hidden somewhere. Then you can fund road repairs and attract Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and all of the Super Companies that will employ the Super Citizens Michigan covets but who don’t live here yet and don’t drive on our roads yet. When all the roads are so Super Grand that Superman trips over himself to move here and brings his whole Super Family and Super Corporations with him, when all of the Super-Citizens who don’t live in Michigan rush here solely because of our Magical Michigan Super Roads, well I’ll bet things will be hunky-dory and Super State Legislature and Super Governor will never have to search 53 billion dollar empty pockets for virtual chump change in order to service the obviously un-super current citizens who already reside here and already pay taxes here. Fools who believe cool cities or cool roads are the answer to poorly managed budgets are working on 20% of brain capacity. Manage funds better.
