Morons to the rescue!

This last week, our "legislature" here in the state of Michigan, after a year of bickering, name-calling, and otherwise extremely childish behavior, closely averted a complete shut down of our state government. James W. Higgins stated his opinion in this matter very clearly.
Our state has the only full-time legislature in the whole country. Yet, our state senators and representatives pay for anything out of pocket. Take for instance, their recent conference in Hawaii, paid for by the tax payers of Michigan. What, a person who makes north of one hundred thousand a year cannot pay for their own trip? Another area where they could have saved money is to have our state legislators pay for their own housing expenses and their own vehicles.
Like most of the other states, what Michigan needs is a part time legislature run by people who know what they are doing. Spending money is easy, it is spending it wisely that takes having a brain.
