Helpful Lawmakers

In today's Detroit Free Press there is an article with the headline Tax Deal Blasted as mere quick fix - Closer look shows trouble on the way. No kidding. One of the things the article points out is the fact that most of the new revenue from this tax will come from taxing business services. Guess who is a heavy user of business services? Automakers. Now, one reason Michigan is in such trouble is because of the ailing U.S. auto industry. I'm sure increased costs are just what the doctor ordered. Another way to make automakers less competitive, another reason for companies to avoid locating in Michigan. Kudos all around.
