Summing up the Democrat attitude in Michigan

From the comments attached to an article about John Cherry's proposed $118 million tax on bottled water to help pay for the recently cut Michigan Promise Scholarship Program.

FINALLY!!! if Nestle is *forced* to move out of state to steal somebody else's water, good riddance. Buying bottled water is ridiculous and irresponsible for 99% of the population of Michigan. Putting a tax on such a wasteful habit could bring back a broken promise as well as cure some of the population of a bad habit
Is it any wonder this state is in deep trouble? Too much taxation, too much regulation, too much spending, targeted bludgeoning of fellow citizens to alter undesired behavior, and consequently, too few employers and too few jobs.

One paragraph from an anonymous poster sums it all up.

It will all wash out though. That extra $118 million can always be diverted into unemployment compensation.
