Some call him a nerd. But Michigan now calls him the Comeback Kid. Politicians had pushed Michigan down to the bottom of the barrel. We elected this self-made nerd as governor and he started making long overdue tough decisions for the right reasons. Decisions that are bringing Michigan back! Governor Rick Snyder cut job-killing taxes and Michigan gained two hundred and twenty thousand private sector jobs, first in the nation in manufacturing jobs. Rick focused on veterans; made it easier for them to find jobs. We're number one in states that have recovered the most from the Great Recession. Education funding's up. Our one and a half billion dollar deficit is gone. Michigan is coming back. Because our governor loves budgets, ignores politics and brings us results.
