Michigan State magic trick:
First a deficit, then a surplus!

Jan 7, 2008

Just a couple months ago, the Michigan state government claimed a budget deficit in order to force a wage freeze and benefit cuts on its workers and cuts in services and tax hikes on its population.

Now, they “discover” that they didn’t have a budget deficit last year at all – they had a surplus!

It’s amazing how the bottom line can change to suit their needs. Enron has nothing on them!
