Well lets see if we add 20 cents a gallon on water then we could raise the judges pension...yeah, yeah, great idea. I swear they lay in bed at night thinking of these bright ideas!

Another wonderful example of what a full time legislature does when the state is losing businesses and revenue at an alarming rate. They are in Lansing way to long when they start spewing ideas such as this. They have not grasped that governments produce zero revenue. They only transfer it from one group to another after they have taken their cut. They think they have a license to steal!
