Tag: Primarying Recruitment

"I'll take Obamacare for $31 million, Alex"
Answer: "the performance by a public official of an act that is legally unjustified, harmful, or contrary to law"

Question: What is malfeasance?
I wonder if our state senators are as willing to face primaries and an angered base like our reps?
As for Reagan's "The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally -- not a 20 percent traitor", allow this image to put the proper perspective on it.

Oh for Pete's sake.
We've been here before, except our Republicans were actually fighting the unknown aspects of the new socialism coming from Washington. Now our governor is acting as a conduit of liberties being taken from us, and there are even willing accomplices which we had not expected. This never should have been allowed out of committee, and it it wasn't for the compromised position that Jase Bolger put himself in (Roy Schmidt), it wouldn't even be coming up for a vote.
This was posted on Facebook. It is reportedly a discussion between Norm Hughes and Michigan State Representative Martin Howrylak:
OK, tie it up, because we need to get to the bottom of this first.
How can a grant be classified? And how could ANYONE even think of voting for something without reviewing it completely?
If this is true, we have a bigger problem than just this one item of malfeasance. Every damned one of those legislators better have a grasp on what they are loading up on Michiganders. As it is, we will spend the next year recruiting candidates up and down the state especially for primaries of non term limited cretins who vote for this thing without understanding what you are actually taking from us.
I have independently verified there is a communication rift between the feds and our legislators with regard to this. This from one who will likely vote FOR the measure:
"We have requested from HHS a copy of the federal docs for review and our requests have been ignored."Isn't that special?
CALL NOW!! quid est consequentia segnitiae?
