Colorado's roads are now paved with gold. So maybe enough.

I don't know how much it would raise, but Michigan's roads can use every dollar they can scrape up.  Sometimes the ends justify the means.

They're also talking about a 40% increase in registration fees. So basically just fuck over the tax payer.

admittedly, it's fun watching the super majority anti-tax republicans - who occupy both chambers of the legislature and the Governors office - have to find a way to actually run a state  

they tried to pass their difficult decisions off on the taxpayers last spring but, thankfully, even the electorate saw through their attempt to dodge responsibility and pass a tax increase off on the voters.

But they aren't raising your taxes, just increasing the amount of 'fees'.

You do realize raising taxes will further the exodus out of the state don't you? Being low cost is pretty much the only thing mi has going for it

You think Michigan has low tax rates? Would be interested to hear how you reached that conclusion.

your grasp on the economics of state government is something that we all can just sit back and admire.

please - tell us more about how not increasing state revenue as basic physical structures of the state continue to deteriorate enhances industry, tourism and the quality of life in Michigan.

Decrease the weight limits for trucks to fix the roads for starters. MI allows the highest weight loads for any state in the country.

Snyder has done a great job...possibly the top Governor in our state's history...too bad he had to focus so much on cleaning up the 8 years of hell under Granholm, who is likely the worst Governor the sate of MI has ever had.

the only thing worse than Snyder is the legislature who participates in paid-by-taxpayer cover up sexual escapades while allowing the roads and, ergo, commerce go down the toilet.

Had one on my porch when I walked out of the house this morning. Nasty little fuckers.

All the more reason to fix them, so they don't keep reproducing.

That's not an option for fixing the roads. Any tax on that will go to some bullshit government addiction programs and/or bureaucratic nonsense.

You will always be my bitch brother. Chicken out of bets, and it wasn't a meeting of the minds. I took your bet. You refused to add the ban. Here's why.: you know I'm right. When it comes to you I'm always right.
