  •  they voted to get rid of the law (16+ / 0-)

    allowing EFMs, and then the legislature made the first order of business the passage of the same law, but with preventive measures so it cannot be put to referendum.  I don't think MI people voted for that, do you?

      They clearly voted OUT the EFM law, only to have Snyder and his GOP cronies vote it back in...

      Help American return to sanity - vote the GOP OUT OF the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate in 2014 elections. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward!

      Re-passing the EFM bill with the attached money appropriation wasn't even a sleight-of-hand.  They did it in full daylight.
      The end goal here is to privatize everything they can get away with and break up the unions.
