House Votes Down Liquor/Estate Taxes

Well, what do you know? The Michigan Legislature voted down the proposed increase in the liquor tax and the extension of the death tax - also known as the estate tax. I guess the Republicans can come through once in a while on tax issues. But now the House Speaker wants to increase the cigaratte tax more than $.75 per pack. Hopefully the rest of the House members will be able to stand up to that too.

They can come up with the votes to sink a new tax, but they can't come up with the votes to make some cuts. What's wrong with these people? They can't find anything to cut in the bloated $9 billion general fund budget?
