In January, Governor Jennifer Granholm announced that there would be no new taxes or tax increases this year and then the other day said she is pushing to reconfigure the gas tax to repair roads,,,,,,,,,,,Oh wait a minute,,there she is now!

Me-" Ms Granholm, do you have a minute?"

G- "Of course Don, what is it?

Me-"Well, it's about this new tax you said we weren't going to get"

G-"It's not a new tax, I'm just going to change it from a flat tax to a graduated tax"

Me- "So it's a new tax?"

G-"Oh no, Don, same tax'.

Me- "But it will cost taxpayers more, right?"

G- "Well it WILL create more revenue"

Me- "Then it must be a tax INCREASE, right?"

G- " No,,same tax"


G- "I have to go now,,,Bye"

Me- "Hey Jennifer, thanks for clearing this up!"


Me, (quietly)......."$*#t!"
