State Senate Votes to Gut 2008 Budget

Apparently the State Senate voted along party lines last week to approves changes to the recently enacted Michigan Business Tax that could cost the state between $550 and $850 million in the current budget year!

Have these people completely lost their minds? Where in hell do they expect the state to come up with this money?

I though we had a deal after the excruciating ordeal in 2007 that scuttled the reviled SBT and replaced it with the MBT. Apparently the lobbyists have gotten to the GOP controlled Senate and convinced them it's time to rip out the sutures and start the bleeding all over again.

2008 was supposed to be different.
