    You really thought the Teahadists would cut individual taxes? Snyder is doing what Romney did in MA, increasing fees on EVERYTHING, from vehicles to fishing.

    Vote NO on May 5. Do you really think the roads will improve?

    So now you want to compare California to Michigan? Same services? Same quality of life? If it's so good in Michigan, why aren't people moving there? Try backing up some of your posts with facts.

    People aren't moving to Michigan because there are no jobs there, duh!

    Maybe the governor is trying to bring back jobs to Michigan by lowering taxes on businesses?

    It's not working. Any gains have been through the meager actions President Obama has been able to implement.

    Michigan was an experiment in Industrialism. It failed, for a myriad of reasons.

    Austerity does not work in a society that is already austere.

    Michigan passed Right to Work. Thought that businesses would be tripping over each other to start up there. Walker has said that will happen in Wisconsin now.

    Well they are in a contest to lure new business to their state. They are in competition with other RTW states, so it is not so easy. But 1 thing is for sure. If a business can move to a RTW state with low taxes or maybe even tax incentives, they probably will.

    Facts have proven otherwise. Jobs in the Midwestern RTW states have grown slower than the national average. The non RTW states have higher growth.

    Facts are stubborn.

    What I said was triue.

    They are in a competition with other states to lure jobs to their states.

    Wisconsin and Michigan are losing that competition.

    Unfortunately, those 2 states have horrible winter weather that !most companies don't want to deal with.

    My point is TEA is taxed enough already, they run on no more taxes. They helped this guy in but nothing being said by them on all the new taxes he has created. Yes weather is a big factor here with about only 3 months of summer, very extreme cold winters, biggest hit to our state over the years is shops closing and going to Mexico and China.

    Minnesota has worse winter weather than either of Wisconsin or Michigan. They also do not have right to work laws on their books.
    They do enjoy much better job growth, income growth and companies relocating to their state than all in the midwest.

    Funny because Forbes had Wisconsin moving from 50 to 47, a gain of 3 spots. Minnesota dropped 1 spot to 9th.
    Looks like Wisconsin is going in the right ection and Minnesota is going in the wrong direction.

    According to Forbes.

    Romney did the same thing in Massachusetts.

    Oh sure, he 'cut' taxes, yet he raised 'fees' on just about everything else.

    These additional costs hit low-wage workers the most, but sure, the rich people were happy.

    Not many people in Mass (of either political persuasion) remember Romney fondly...
