With a little luck, Obama will print some $$$ and send them to Michigan to help "the poor"--which will soon be all of us if this legislature has its way. Heck, I guess if you make under $100,000, these people already believe you're poor.
DO remember in November. It's not just the federal legislators who can be kicked out.
