Lt. Gov. Brian Calley fights not to let his principles get in the way of doing the right thing


Wait. He said WHAT???!

Michigan Lt. Governor Brian Calley has a most amazing quote up on the front page of MIRS News’ website today:

Every once in a while you have to rise above principle and do the right thing.

– Lt. Gov. Brian CALLEY in talking about his support for legislation requiring insurance companies include autism treatment in its policies, despite opposition from business groups.

This reminds me of U.S. House Speaker John Boehner during the fight to preserve the middle class tax cuts:

Sometimes it’s hard to do the right thing…

It’s not always easy to do the right thing…

[W]hy not do the right thing for the American people, even though it’s not exactly what we want?

Today’s Republicans: struggling to do the right thing for their state and their country. Because it’s just so hard and sometimes your danged principles get in the way.
