Tag: Bad Doggie
By JGillman, Section News
I would have thought it hard to consider a primary challenge to Rick Snyder a real possibility.
Given the courage to stand up for what is only right, and sign Freedom-To-Work legislation, it seemed like Rick Snyder sealed the deal for a 2014 re-election bid. Anyone who would have challenged him would have to have a good explanation as to WHY they might oppose such a righteous outcome. As some have said, its easier to train a bad Chihuahua to be good, than euthanize it and get a good Sheepdog. (I know that no-one has put it that way, but it just seemed appropriate.) Puppy training our governor seemed to have worked, and by golly that big bite for the rights of Michiganders was worthy of a few accidents on the rug.
But alas, he is chewing up the furniture and foaming at the mouth now:
Governor Rick Snyder became only the 6th governor in the US to back Medicaid expansion in accordance with The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Details here. The conservative Heritage Foundation has estimated that this action will cost Michigan taxpayers an additional $835 million.That and the budget ballooning to $51 Billion??!:
"The total executive budget recommendation for fiscal year 2014, including all state and federal revenue sources, is $50.9 billion.Leaves one question.
Do ya folks think its possible old Yeller's got the rabies?
If so, you KNOW what that means.
