9. Michigan in not a high tax state!
That's a GOP talking point. BTW, Michigan's problem isn't the inability to attract jobs. It's the fact that job growth can't possible keep up with the massive automotive job losses.


If we really wanted to deal with climate change and getting off foreign oil, Dingell's proposal would be one of the better options. The ONLY thing that changed our demand for oil and large vehicles was high gas prices. People seem to only want to deal with climate change if it doesn't cost them anything. This definitely isn't the best time to be increasing taxes but if we want to deal with climate change and getting off foreign oil it would be better than simply increasing CAFE standards.
