Deals are being made!

The Governor and the Speaker are desperate for a deal to get this tax increase through. After six hours, they are still 13 votes short of raising your income taxes from 3.9% to 4.6%.

Word on the street from independent confidential sources is one Republican member has been offered a judgeship in exchange for a yes vote and another member has been offered a "free ride" in his bid for Senate (no Democrat opponent). Question is, can you trust the Governor to keep her promise? And, are you willing to stick it to the people of Michigan to feather your own bed? The good news: sounds like my buds in the caucus are telling the Governor to, well, let's just say they have politely declined. Stay tuned.
