But those multi-millions in bonds still have to be repaid.
Wonder if the funds are earmarked, and if she will try to divert them.

If she messes with money that ways, she could be on a fast track to have an adjoining cell to Mr. Kirkpatrick

On another note we pay a bottle / can deposit of $0.10 and the state has the money. We haven't been able to turn cans for 3 months because it's not safe where is the money???

I have enough for a new boat $$$$$$$$$$$$$ close anyway.

Intentionally or not, she is raping this state.

This is all part of the plan. Keep everything locked down tight until the economy really does fail and then blame bad orange man for it all. I can see her now "*sniff* The the the federal government is horrible, oh president Trump how could you?"

I'm sitting here watching it happen in real time. In Oakland county, one of the highest density counties in Michigan has 3. That's 3 cases. And for this we stay locked down? She's doing this on purpose because the people she works for are fed up with her extensions and she couldn't get her gas tax so she's punishing us instead - and that's all this is, punishment. The fact that it's ruining the economy is frosting on the cake of retribution.

Limbaugh was exactly correct.



The blue states stay locked down. These are populous places — New York, Massachusetts, California. So they stay locked down all for the express purpose of canceling out the increase created by the red states. The economic activity that will happen from the red states going back to work, the blue state governors are gonna try to cancel it out by keeping their people at home. They’re gonna wreck the economy. Their objective is to wreck the economy and get rid of Trump. So let’s say that… Well, hard as it is to imagine, let’s say they succeed. Let’s imagine they do this. They keep the economy in such bad shape that Trump is sent packing. What do they expect when that’s all over? Do they expect us just to forget it?

What she going to cut ROAD REPAIRS??? HAHAHAHAHAH!

Cut dam inspections and what else. How about get rid of half the people working from home that aren't doing anything.

HAHAHAH



The #ing roads have been a disaster here the entire 38 years I have been driving, the worst in the country.
So I can’t really blame this idiot for that entire time.
As soon as you cross over into Ohio or Indiana, they are smooth as glass though....never really tried to figure out what they do differently.
Could you imagine Dim Whitmer as Biden’s VP?
She is as clueless as he is.


Michigan is built on a swamp basically, sedimentary layers make up a lot of the material under the surface. Couple that with the freezing/warming cycles and that causes a lot of shifting and weakness in the roadways. What do other states that have the same conditions do? We don't know, Michigan is the only one surrounded by three of the largest freshwater lakes in the world and that used to be totally under water - in recent geological history.

That said, technology being what it is today it seems like better road designs could be developed at reasonable costs. I hate our roads for the most part, driving in most metro areas is really hard on vehicles because the roads get beaten constantly by heavy traffic. I don't know what the answer is, but what we're doing isn't working.

She shut down the state.

As a result, the state lost money (revenue).

She wants federal government to bail her out for her actions.

If she doeesn't get her bail out, she will punish the people of her state because of what she did.


Your governor is Evita Peron.

problem is bailing them out might make some sense and its because if a blue state goes down all the rats will leave the sinking ship and go infect a safer red state which will eventually turn it purple then blue because the rats always get involved in local politics and start bending policy towards their insane world view.

but i dont agree with bailing them out. somehow there needs to be some historical examples of how badly rats trash anything they live in...just chewing up sofa cushions and making nests out of toilet paper and pooping everywhere....

Math is hard! And she isn't the brightest.

None of these socialist politicians understand that eventually they will run out of other people's money to spend.

I'm already making plans to leave. I have two neighbors who are looking into to the same thing.

I just hope I can off load my house for a decent price before it all falls apart.

Where is the money from all the school sinking funds and road tax and that damn uninsured motorist medical fund?

Michigan seems to eat tax dollars and the grift keeps grifting. Gretchen should look at what happened to Connecticut when Malloy thought he could turn it into a socialist utopia. Mass exodus and no tax review.

What would make most of us happy is if Biden (or more correctly his campaign staff) sees the clusterF she has made this and shuts her down as his running mate. Her head would explode like Hillary's did when Trump was declared the winner. Then she would try to take it out on us, trying to do more things without anyone knowing like she did with the tracking software company, the bond, etc. and at that point she would likely be forced out of office at the threat of an armed rebellion.

This story is not going to finish well for her. Short term pain for the rest of us would be well worth it to watch her go down in flames.

Wait until people start to leave Michigan....again....for greener pastures.
Remember a few years back when tradesmen left to find work?
And why operate a business in Michigan if other states look for favorably towards business????

Cut off nose to spite face.

Don't come to Illinois! Our gas tax increased 19 cents a gallon and vehicle plate stickers went from $99 to $151. That was before our low-IQ governor shut down the state over 4/100th of 1% of Illinois residents dying of Covid-19.

You'll be helping to generate the ever-increasing upward spiral of taxes and fees levied upon those who stay. Don't go. Please!!

Whoa, I just realized Whitmer is the same person who
did the Democrat response to the State of The Union.

www.npr.org...

She must be deep with them, trying to ruin the State of Michigan
to be punitive to recovering from the lock downs.

Scary stuff, these people will bring the world to their knees
if they can get away with it. She is in for the 2020 haul.

Although I know plenty will leave to find work....leaving IS not necessarily the right answer.
Unless Michigan gets as bad as Illinois....tax-wise.

I moved here for work only and now I have no need to stay, especially with the taxes increasing and not much to show for it. I can move somewhere nicer and less expensive.

Changing decades of badly run democrat govt is not incentive for me to jeopardize my livelihood.

Same thing with New York City's Bill de Blasio. He vows not to fully re-open unless U.S. taxpayers fork over at least 7.5 Billion dollars. (This was 2 weeks ago...probably wants more now.) NY Gov Cuomo personally visited the White House on Tuesday seeking Billions of Dollars.
