“While I would love to take full credit for Michigan’s turnaround, I can’t. And my successor, Governor Snyder, would probably like to take full credit too, but he can’t either since the new tax policies he enacted just took effect a few weeks ago.
But you know who can take much of the credit? President Obama and to a lesser extent, even President Bush. The rebound of Michigan began in late 2009, early 2010 after the restructuring of the auto industry.”
“What saved Michigan was the decision that the auto industry was too important to the nation to be allowed to fail.”
