Default Snyder

I don't know what to think of him. Some of his policies and ideas I like while others I hate.

Pros:
Seems to really care about letting private business thrive in Michigan (business tax revamp)
Michigan Right to Work
He pushed the bridge to Canada through
I really like the dashboard he created http://www.michigan.gov/midashboard



Cons:
Wants to raise gas tax
wants to raise sales tax
wants to increase vehicle registration fees
Wanted to accept Obamacare *


* I don't really know the pros and cons of a state accepting obamacare or not so I am not sure what was behind his decision to accept it right away.

What do you guys think of him?

He's a welcome change after too many years of Granholm.

I'm kinda in the same mindset as you.

I really am not sure how I feel.

I like the direction he is pointing this state.

However to get us back to where we need to be it's going to take some hard decisions and compromises by all after the many years of garbage we have been given.

Don't care.


Even if our State and local governments weren't totally corrupt already... the federal government is so far gone that the only hope for a decent future is an armed revolution.

Sucks to tell the truth and make hard decisions but they need to be done.

I think it's a good thing that some, maybe even a majority, of people don't 'know how they feel'. That means he's doing things that don't cater to any of the political norms/parties. JMHO

I agree. Nobody being "in love" with him probably means he's striking the right balance, he making the tough decisions rather than just toeing the party line.

My drunk uncle would have been an improvement over that Canadian/Californian bitch. That said Snyder has made huge improvements, my recent shitty home appraisal not withstanding.

President Obama has polarized the country. You either hate him, or you're someone abusing government assistance.

Seriously though, I think it's a good things that most people I've talked to feel kind of 'eh' about him. I hope in 5 or 6 years people can see the results of what he has been doing and be happy with it.
