State Rankings for Services Received vs. Taxes Paid - Michigan is 46th.

The Blaze.com has an article ranking states according to the value of services received vs. the taxes paid.  Michigan ranked 46th, meaning there are only four states that are worse than Michigan.  If Proposal 1 passes, Michigan will probably have the disgraceful stigma of being the worst state in the nation for services rendered vs. taxes paid.

GOP Michigan U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers continues his Fraud on Benghazi

Message from Virginia’s 7th District voters: Stop the LYING and represent us.

     Eric Cantor was/is a liar who put his own selfish political ambitions above the desires of the people he was elected to represent and eventually he paid the price by being fired.  Cantor lied repeatedly.  He told his constituents one thing and then went to Washington and did the exact opposite.  Cantor told his constituents he was a fiscal conservative, but went to Washington and voted to increase spending and increase the…

Obama’s real motives are to support the Muslim Brotherhood, as he did in Egypt which has turned out to be an abysmal failure.    As always,…
