From the Denise “Chip” Black, Milford:
A state’s budget is both a moral statement and a vision for the future. The budget for next year reveals a failure to accept moral responsibility on the part of Gov. Rick Snyder and his cohorts in the state Legislature. Their budget offers a bleak vision for the future of Michigan. It demonstrates that corporations are valued over human beings, the rich are more worthy than the needy, and education will leave more children “behind.” If Michigan fails to provide the resources to enable children to become gainfully employed and be proactive citizens, our state fails our nation.
