And As Predicted, Whitmer & the Dems Cave To GOP Demands

I wanted to be wrong, but I had a feeling Michigan Republicans would claim victory in stopping Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer from fixing the roads. As I wrote earlier, thanks to the knee-capping of Whitmer’s road funding plan by the House Democratic leader Chris Greig, the Democrats were going to cave-in to Republican demands and…
