State Rep. Eileen Kowall (R-White Lake) made the following statement after Gov. Rick Snyder's third State of the State address:

"There has been quite a turnaround in our state over the past two years. Tonight, the governor stressed that although things have improved, we still need to find ways to help make our economy healthy so that Michigan can be a better place to live and work. I remain committed to creating an effective, accountable and transparent government, while looking for long-term solutions to our problems.

"Thanks to our reform efforts, our state has already become more competitive. While things are looking up, there are many more challenges to address and I am prepared to look at all possible solutions and opinions to help Michigan reach its full potential. Reform will never be easy, but we need to do everything we can to grow our economy and keep our children and grandchildren here in Michigan."

are YOU kidding??? "Quite a turnaround" ?????? what data do you have that shows exactly how many jobs have been created from the $2 billion corp welfare tax giveaways??? Was it really worth gutting Public Ed funding and taxing seniors??? Wake up, Huron Valley School residents!!! Thr Kowalls have voted 100% AGAINST Pub Ed and the MI's middle class. Every piece of cookie cutter, copy/paste ALEC written legislation that has been forced through the repub majority in Lansing... the Kowalls have supported with a YES vote! There is ZERO evidence that the Kowalls'/Snyder's

trickle down scheme has created ANY jobs in MI. Unemployment remains @ 8.9%. Where are the trickle down jobs, Kowalls??? General statements about REFORMS working just doesn't cut it anymore. Snyder just admitted in an interview after the SOS that he does not have figures that show rtw4less creates more jobs. The extreme, Koch bros. & Dick Devos ALEC agenda being jammed down our throats is a scam!!! The Kowalls were a part in the 11th hour lame duck passing of numerous extreme bills.. including passing the Emergency Fincial Manager law AGAIN... just a month after MI repealed that ANTI-Democracy dictator law. The Kowalls and Snyder are about PRIVATIZING anything and everything they can... NO matter the effect their greedy actions have on MI's working class.
