Michigan Democrats hoping for a big day on Tuesday

Things have been quiet so far this year in Michigan’s Capitol, but that’s likely to change.

Democrats are expected to win special elections on Tuesday, and regain the majority in the State House that they lost when two members resigned in November. That resulted in a 54-54 partisan gridlock.

If the Democrats rule the day, their party would again have full control of Lansing, which Bridge Michigan reports the party seized last year and enacted sweeping reforms.

However, the items expected to be next on the agenda are far more contentious and divisive, including corporate subsidy reform and hate crime laws.

“Democrats are expected to win special elections on Tuesday”

Rampant election fraud does that sort of thing.

How can these people still think they have power. It sickens me to see what this country has become.

What has it become ? Its like this world wide. These United States is becoming like it was everywhere. . High prices, blame the corporations. High gas prices, blame the rest of the world. Homelessness, sorry, but that’s worldwide as well. Hard times come and go every day.

High prices, blame the red tape that makes domestic manufacturing difficult, laws that make American labor noncompetitive, and bad monetary policy that is tanking the value of the dollar.

High gas prices, blame the administration who declared a “war on energy” two days after stealing the office.

Homelessness, blame a wide open border, a court that legalized vagrancy, and more wonderful red tape that drives up the cost of housing. Oh, and all the “tenant rights” laws that make being a rental property owner a non-starter for most individuals.

Hard times come and go, but with this regime in office they seem to come a lot more than they go.

Yep waiting for approval. Only approved if it’s what you believe. So typical

A few years back I said Michigan is done for. The big government socialists rigged it that they would rule the state. I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
