Governor Snyder is wasting no time utilizing a back door attempt to implement Obamacare in Michigan.
With the acceptance of 30.9 million of Federal money being offered to Michigan to fund the Health Care Exchange, 2013 could see Obama Care in MI and More! There is expected a Committee vote anytime, which has precipitated a grassroots backlash. This money is key to jump-starting the Health Care Exchange this year. It was stopped by our efforts last year. We can do it again! IT MUST BE DONE. Stopping the funding of the Health Care Exchange is necessary in stopping the expansion of Medicaid in Michigan as the Exchange will administer the program.
A press release issued this morning (published at Jen Kuznicki's blog and elsewhere) from other activists and grassroots leaders suggests withholding support from organizations which support the exchanges as well:
"The coalition of activists urges those who are like-minded members of The Michigan Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Association of Michigan (SBAM), Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce, Michigan Manufacturing Association and The Michigan Business and Professional Association to cancel membership until these organizations withdraw their support of the Exchange."We agree. We also have joined this coalition to stop the expansion of Medicaid that promises only more generations of dependence and eventual higher taxes.
Contacting committee members and parties involved must be done ASAP

Snyder: Public safety a priority
C'mon Rick, if you have any serious aspirations of a second term, it is time to end the Colbert Republican shtick. Also, take note that even the clown wears a necktie.
My inbox reminded me today that every Michigan taxpayer has $929,000,000 reasons every year to be serious about protecting Michigan families and Michigan jobs.
Please, send Snyder a free fax to let him know that you are serious too by clicking HERE.
