It is not exactly true that the Michigan Legislature can’t get anything done.
For example, our lawmakers did pass a bill to allow a fur dealer to hold a license to trap beaver.
Don’t you feel better about that? The governor signed it yesterday.
On the down side, they completely failed to get done the voters' most important priority, fixing our terrible roads.
You see, fixing the roads would cost money.
It would also require making hard choices, which many elected officials seem allergic to, especially in an election year.
Some of our lawmakers seem dead set against raising any taxes, even though polls have shown this is the one thing voters are willing to pay for. Some can’t see past their narrow ideological blinders enough to simply get the job done.
