Michigan under assault: Gov. Snyder signs bill kicking families off welfare if their kid is truant (and more)


BREAKING: Michigan is breaking

It’s been a tough week in Michigan.

All of this and we still have one more day to go.

It really feels like a Republican lame duck session this week. It’s clear that Republicans see that they have complete control over our state government and have no plans to waste that time. There doesn’t seem to be a single corporatist-backed or religionist-supported issue that they aren’t nailing down with regressive new laws. The Koch brothers, the American Family Association, Right to Life, all of these regressive groups and more seem to have direct conduits directly into our state legislature.

It’s going to be a long 17 months until November 2016…
