Thousands of Michigan retirees are outraged by newly-elected Gov. Rick Snyder’s plan to tax pensions while cutting the state’s business tax. Some are beginning to wonder just who they elected to lead a state that has been ravaged by the offshoring of America’s industrial base.

If someone—anyone–had bothered to dig deeper before last November’s Michigan election, they might have been surprised by what’s below the surface. A diligent inquiry would have raised some national security questions about Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. They are questions that remain unasked and unanswered. They are questions which should be asked about people in positions of power in every state.
