Following up to Dean's post below, we saw the midterm erections with the young socialibs winning majority seats due the voter turnouts of young millenials wanting legalized pot, more blacks wanting whitey out, more women wanting men out and to spite Trump and the Kavanaugh fiasco. Michigan was no different. The Republican candidate lost because he did not get any support from the party let alone the outgoing Republican governor Rick Snyder, and because he was an older Christina white guy. the Democrat winner, Whitmer won because she is female, and vowed to 'fix the damn roads' and the education system. Well, in her $o$ speech a few weeks ago she again made it clear she was going to fulfill her campaign promises, yet then and now with this recent announcement, has yet to say how these projects will be funded. In 2006 many of Michigan's Interstates, at least major parts of them, were being totally redone. TEN years later they were once again under construction. It seems to me the problem lies in poor workmanship an materials. Handing out contracts to the cheapest bidder appears to be a poor choice. Oh, and the Democratic governor prior to the outgoing Rick Snyder allowed Canadian firms exceptions and tax breaks which allowed more commerce (trucks)on our roads from Canada bypassing weight restrictions and such. Did I mention she was Canadian??? It's a given higher taxes are the answer, it's the liberal way, with a state gas take hike already on the table to fund her roads. Whitmer, just like her other socialib pals like AOC have also promised FREE college too, especially to minorities. Can someone explain Whitmer's comment, "…economically disadvantaged and other at-risk students…”??? Is this the new liberal euphemism for blacks, illegal immigrants, and Muslims?
