    and I am a state worker, and a member of a union.  Here are my impressions:  I think that most Michigan voters don't like extremists or extremist legislation.  I think that the voters are also very reluctant to change our State Constitution.  I think that is why they voted down Prop 2 - because it went too far and it would have changed the constitution.  But now Governor Snidely has gone too far the other way, after saying for 2 years that RTW was not on his agenda.  Also, once voters learn how this legislation was rammed thru in 5 days, they won't like that.  I think that Governor Snidely will be a one-term governor.

    •  Exactly. They subverted the process. People won't (0+ / 0-)

      forget.  I read that a snap poll showed only 6% of Michigan voters thought Snyder should have picked this fight.  

      Watch for the rest of the Alec legislation this week - attaching abortion restrictions to the Blue Cross bill, etc.  These people are bought and paid for, and it shows.
