I listen and read to Jack Lessenberry quite a bit. He is a Michigan commentator on the radio and web.
His latest essay takes Michiganders to task for taking away the money needed for services via tax cuts and removing politician’s responsibility for long term decisions via term limits.
He writes (and reads via the audio link):
You might want to ask what kind of state you want to live in, and whether clutching your tax cut in your cave is really what you want.
