Just how F-ed up is Michigan's Tea Party Legislature

While Democrats were sleeping during the 2010 midterm elections, white trash racists, religious fanatics, and Tea Party dolts across the state were working hard to get like minded dipshits elected to the Michigan State legislature.   And being illiterate themselves, these new politicians had to outsource their actual legislating jobs to the interns at ALEC the 501(c)(3) charitable tax-exempt right wing lobbying group that writes thumb drives full of model legislation to hand over to the Gomer Pyle GOP legislators across the USA so they can focus on real important things like keeping constituents mad at the world and tossing doggie treats to police and fire fighter unions.

Example "A" of how low this outsourced legislature has sunk. They just eliminated the $600 tax deduction for children on 2012 Michigan state income taxes but now they want to add a new deduction for fetuses who have not been born yet.  I am not making this up.

After Cutting Child Tax Credit, Michigan Republicans Want A Deduction For Fetuses   

The great Barney Frank (D-MA) said that anti-abortion-rights Republicans believe “life begins at conception and ends at birth.” Michigan Republicans must not have realized that he was joking.
House Bills 5684 and 5685, which were given a hearing in the Michigan House Tax Policy Committee on Tuesday,would give a tax exemption for fetuses that are at least 12 weeks old. This would follow a cut in the tax credit for actual living children signed into law by Republican governor Rick Snyder last year, according to Progress Michigan. The progressive organization notes that Michigan is rated 44th in children living in poverty.
2014 elections can not get here soon enough.  Hopefully by then the IRS will awaken from their deep slumber and eliminate the taxpayer subsidy for the political lobbying groups like ALEC, Heritage Foundation, Heartland Institute and ProEnglish and the hundreds of other political shill organizations feeding at the public trough, cheating the IRS out of revenue.
