Pray for Michigan as it deals with $173 million state budget deficit

Michigan's state budget will likely be out of whack by more than $173 million at the end of this year, according to state legislative budget forecasters.

Will legislators and the governor be able to set down their partisan cudgels and take a deep look at our state budget?  So far, all of them have been whiny, partisan finger-pointers.

Our state's voters need to demand better behavior.  If the legislature can't deliver a good product, then voters should consider making the legislature part-time and perhaps unicameral.  Why have two houses, the House and the Senate, when legislative performance equals that of half a house.
