    Listen, if you vote the same people back into office that created the law you just voted to get rid of, why would you be surprised that they just passed the same law all over again?  Maybe the voters learn something and 2014 will be different, but with all the gerrymandering, don't hold your breath.

    The voters of Michigan need to put forward a voter initiative to redo the districts in the state so that they better represent the will of the people.  Until the root of the problem is dealt with, this stuff is going to continue, both on the state and national level.
