The Michigan Constitution states, “All political power is inherent in the people.”
The people exercised that political power and resoundingly elected Democrats across the state. However, Republicans in the state legislature are quickly moving legislation to circumvent the will of Michigan voters – and in the end, Gov. Rick Snyder may be the only one left to stop some of this madness from becoming law.
Republican legislators’ first order of business in the “lame duck” session was to strip power from the women who defeated them.
