Granholm Jets Off to Japan for the Weekend

Michigan doesn’t have a state budget yet, but that’s not stopping Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) jetting off to Japan for the weekend. Of course, from her point of view, it’s about jobs for the future. She’ll be saying Michigan is the Alternative Energy Center of North America.

Ok, so, whoop-de-doo! What about a state budget, Jenny? Don’t be looking for too many businesses to say “Yes! Michigan!” until they know what the ground rules are gonna be.

Oh, and just curious. How much is this trip to Japan costing Michigan taxpayers? And that benefits us how?

About that state budget? Well, like State House Speaker Andy Dillon (D-Redford) says, maybe next week.
