Listening to Paul W. Smith's radio program this morning, Jenny Granholm made it clear that she is more concerned about keeping a promise to 94,000 college kids, than she is to millions of Michigan taxpayers.

Granholm has failed this state. Repeatedly. And now she is going to break another promise: she promised no more new taxes. Yet to save the Promise Scholarship, which is $4,000 to 94,000 college students, she is willing to tax physicians 3% of their gross receipts.
Question: If you tax medical providers 3%, how do you think they will consume that? My guess is that they are going to raise medical fees by, you ready for this, 3%! And if the state makes that illegal, guess what? You will force doctors out of the state, or into retirement. How does that help anyone?
Jenny, keep your promise. Approve the cuts the Republican senate has proposed. We the people are tired of being squeezed from everything from the income we make, to the property we own, to the products we buy in the store. STOP IT JENNY! DO NOT RAISE TAXES! DO NOT CREATE NEW TAXES! DO NOT DISGUISE (as you did last time) THEM AS SERVICE FEE INCREASES!
Stop the lying Jenny, and do what this state elected you to do: to do right by the taxpayer. DO IT NOW.
