"We need to make budget cuts, not raise taxes and a nickel beer tax won't clear the billion-dollar deficit we're facing," Marsden said.
Say, where are those cuts that YOU insist on making? We need to know who else you intend to hurt because you're too greedy to help anyone but the wealthy. Last time the beer tax was raised? 1966. The year before Mike Bishop was born. Current tax on a bottle of beer? 2 cents.
"I am 100 percent committed to a strong American auto industry, and we will stand with America’s auto workers and their families during these difficult times. As a part of our commitment to the American auto industry, I charged my administration with using Recovery Act funds to purchase a new fleet of fuel efficient government vehicles to increase demand for our American auto companies and stimulate the economy. I am pleased to announce today that my team has moved swiftly to accelerate this purchase and give our American auto industry and our economy a boost. This is only a first step, but I will continue to ensure that we are working to support the American auto industry during this difficult period of restructuring."
Good deal. Ed Montgomery is in Ohio today to soothe the fears down there. Hey, maybe these guys are serious after all.
That's all for now - have a good holiday weekend everyone!
