A Year of Accomplishments

While we're already a few weeks in to 2014, Gov. Rick Snyder has taken a look back at the year that was, and some of the accomplishments for the state of Michigan in his latest blog posting.
Jan 11, 2014

According to Snyder, Michigan residents worked together and achieved many good things, and noted that there was a lot to be proud of.

Here is some of what Snyder had to say:

"We balanced our budget well ahead of schedule, three years running. We increased funding for K-12 education for the third year in a row. We put 16,000 kids into preschool, and we added 64,000 kids to Healthy Kids Dental. And we made sure that 470,000 Michiganders in need have health insurance.

But that’s not all. This year, Michigan’s job creators continued to grow and expand. Since three years ago, they’ve created more than 220,000 private sector jobs. And according to University of Michigan economists, we’re on track to reach job levels not seen since before the Great Recession."

If you call taxing seniors pensions, redistricting before the census, gutting public education, dark money promises,and the Snyder non-truths accomplishments, then the citizens of Michigan are all in trouble.
