This SHOCKING video exposes how Republicans has no regard for the will of the people OR Democracy. Michigan Republicans have passed over 546 bills under “immediate effect” without even counting the votes as shown in the next video below. Republican Governor Rick Snyder has installed Emergency Managers using the Emergency Manager Law. These Emergency Managers can bypass and circumvent the power of elected officials and do practically anything they want.
A Republicans PAC in Michigan which calls its self “Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility” blocked REAL Michigan citizens petition drive to get the Emergency Manager Law repealed by claiming the font size of the heading is smaller than required by Michigan Election Law.
Citizens should have the right to have this put on the ballot. Using a font size to try and stop this from being put to a vote is OUTRAGEOUS
This video shows how Michigan Republicans are ramming legislation through which is going into immediate effect, even though they don’t have the 2/3 majority vote required by law. Note how Republican Michigan Speaker of the House Subverts Democracy by NOT counting the votes. This is a OUTRAGE and goes against everything democracy is supposed to stand for.
Fed up citizens created a petition to overturn the Emergency Manager Law. The people of Michigan got enough votes to repeal the Emergency Manager Law during the 2012 Presidential election. The response from the Republican Majority Michigan Senate, House and Governor Rick Snyder was to create a NEW Emergency Manager Law is almost impossible to get overturned of by voter referendum.
This is another example of how Republicans don’t give a DAM about the will of the people.
