Over One-third of All State Revenue Comes From the Feds: We Rank #9.

As reported in the Michigan Capitol Confidential, Michigan was 9th highest in percentage of federal funds as a share of total spending; we are projected to jump to 8th place for 2010. Read the story here. As bad as the financial picture for Michigan is, this could put even more pressure on the governor and the legislature to address the problem. Stimulus dollars was the primary source of the increase. That kind of money will not be coming from Washington in the future now that the Republicans are in control of the appropriations process in Congress.

What you’re saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what you’re trying to say. I’m sure you’ll reach so many people with what you’ve got to say.
