You just won't believe what is happening now! The Democrats have only been able to find 52 of their members who will vote for this ridiculous service tax package (need 56 votes). So now, they have sent all of their members over to our side to personally lobby us to vote for it. This is so funny I can hardly contain myself!
My counterpart, the Democrat from Kalamazoo, came over to ask me to vote for this. Guess what he said? "This is a republican idea! This is the fair tax!" Yeah, right. My reply to him was, "OK, you're right, this is like the fair tax, now all we have to do to make it exactly like the fair tax is to repeal the personal income tax, and the personal property tax on businesses completely!" He walked away.
