Michigan's economy has been in the death throes of anti-business liberals and Democrats for years, will smoking ban be the final nail in the coffin?

Michigan has been controlled by Democrat lawmakers for years. The liberal legacy has been higher taxes, increased spending and anti-business initiatives..... currently Michigan has the dubious distinction of have the highest unemployment rate in the country at 15.1%.

So what do you do if you're a liberal lawmaker in the Wolverine State?...Enact another anti-business initiative of course, a statewide smoking ban.

Everywhere enacted, smoking bans have destroyed business and jobs:

3,382 UK pubs closed after nationwide smoking ban

1,000-2,000 US bars & restaurants closed after various smoking bans were enacted

Nearly 300 Mpls / St. Paul bars & restaurants closed after smoking bans were enacted

Casino revenue losses in Colorado & Las Vegas after smokingbans

Washington State gambling revenues fall sharply due to ban

Trump & Atlantic City casinos lose significant revenue after smoking ban

Illionois smoking ban eliminates revenues in casinos

-economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis have released analysis that says Illinois lost over $200 million in state and local revenue by placing the smoking ban on state-licensed casinos.

Hopefully 2010 is the year Michigan voters wake-up.
