The Tax-Eaters Continue to Feast on Taxpayers

This except from the Detroit News about the continuing rise in unemployment in Michigan says it all:

"Michigan lost about 38,000 nonfarm payroll jobs in April. About 22,000 of those jobs were in manufacturing and another 9,000 were in construction. About 3,000 jobs were lost in retail trade.

Government was the only broad employment category to add jobs in Michigan last month, with a net increase of about 2,000 jobs. Employment in professional and business services remained steady."

There is only one way to end the ongoing feast at the public trough. Michigan needs to do what California did. Cut them off. After the results from California Tuesday, legislators have the ammunition they need to say it's time to turn off the spigot.
