The Mackinac Center was cited today by World Magazine in a story about the Michigan Legislature's failure to balance the fiscal 2010 budget and its self-created $2.8 billion overspending crisis.

The magazine correctly points out that when the Legislature addressed its $1.4 billion overspending crisis in 2007 by passing a tax increase to balance the fiscal 2008 budget, Center analysts called the move "job-killing." Indeed, Michigan's unemployment has more than doubled since the tax hike was passed Oct. 1, 2007.
