The Michigan State Assembly has given final approval to an emergency financial management bill decried by critics as an attack on workers and basic democracy. Under the bill, emergency financial managers would be allowed to break union contracts, dismiss elected officials and even disincorporate entire municipalities. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to sign the measure into law. Snyer is also attempting to push through a plan to tax the public and private pensions of senior citizens. Over a thousand people held a protest outside the state Capitol in Lansing Tuesday before attempting a sit-in inside. Protesters are vowing to return for another rally today.

Rick Snyder makes Vladimir Putin look like Dennis Kucinich. He is a straight-up fascist, ready to appoint financial "czars" to replace publicly elected mayors and city councils. And yes, on top of that there is his plan to take money from seniors to pay for big business tax cuts. People in Michigan need to rise up as strong as Wisconsinites and recall this heartless bastard before the whole state resembles Mussolini's Italy!
