The majority of Michigan's Republican state Senators decided that summer vacation is more important than fixing the roads. That is the scathing denunciation coming from the top, minority, Democrat in the Senate.

And even Republican Governor Rick Snyder admits "there are too much in politics going on, and there has been."

The Senate's Republican Majority Leader insisted for reporters that fixing the roads demands new taxes and fees, which lawmakers are not ready to approve in an election year.

Randy Richardville says the money might have been generated by cutting wasteful spending, but he said, "that's hard work."

At this point, there is no plan for fixing the roads that every politician agrees is at the top of our state's priority list.

The Legislature is on Summer Break, with very days in session scheduled as they campaign for reelection in August and November.
