"Fix the damn roads" she says. Good line, a real campaign winner. But the issue has never been about whether people want better roads, they do. The
issue has always been paying for them. So what is Gov. Jennifer Whitmer's
plan to pay for them? Excuse me Gretchen. I didn't pay much attention to her campaign so maybe I missed it, but I read enough so if she put something concrete out there I would have heard about it.

Here's my guess. Taxes will go up. Well how come when government makes an "investment" on something it doesn't resolve anything so we can stop spending on it, and thereby re-direct the money elsewhere? Because it's government, not a business.

"Fix the Damn Roads" was one heck of a campaign slogan, and may have won her the election.

Whitmer has a new slogan now.  "It's going to take awhile."

No shite Sherlock.....
