    This and Benton Harbor is quickly demonstrating why EFM powers being increased are so dangerous....it invites a dictatorship by the purse, with no second guessing allowed. He seemed to be doing the right things....then Snyder took off the cuffs that were placed on him and any other EFM, and now they're quickly seizing every lever they can.

    I will respect the Republican Party the day they decide to start respecting all Americans....therefore, I will never respect the Republican Party.

      of him?  He would admit to nothing, explain nothing.  Sort of like Eric Cantor, he thinks he is answerable to no one but his donors.

      Actual fiscal responsibility comes a distant third behind ideology and personal/class greed.

    •  Several teachers in my family, all Dems (0+ / 0-)

      And they were happy with the moves he was making, felt that someone was finally being an adult in Detroit. I read over what he was doing and felt the same.  Just depressing that he took the extra power and started running with it.
