Your governor just increased your health insurance premiums to pay state and local income taxes. How's that sound?-----------5 new laws affecting businesses in 2013

5 new laws affecting businesses in 2013 | Crain's Detroit Business:
"2. Blue Cross
Snyder ended 2012 by vetoing a bill to convert Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan into a nonprofit mutual insurance company, because lawmakers tacked on language regarding abortion coverage he felt want too far.
A few months later, a new bill was drafted, sans the abortion language, and Snyder signed it.
Under the new law, the Blues will contribute as much as $1.56 billion over 18 years to a fund aimed at improving the health and wellness of state residents. 
It will also pay an estimated $100 million in annual state and local taxes."
