Every New GOP Governor Lowered UnEmployment Rates: Michigan Republican Gov Vetoes Voter ID

Every state that elected a GOP Governor in 2010 saw their unemployment rates decline. The national rate of decline is .9%. The average of the decline in the newly Republican-governed states below is 1.35%. Take a look at Michigan, one of the economically hardest hit states in the Nation. Better days began in Michigan with Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm (Obama’s close friend) term-limited, leaving room for a Republican in the Governor’s mansion. Michigan’s unemployment declined by almost 2-1/2%. Granholm’s successor, Republican Governor Rick Snyder went over to the dark side, however, by vetoing a Voter ID law. Michigan has an existing law that permits a voter to sign an affidavit if they do not have an I.D. with a photograph. What was he thinking?
