Last year we unveiled the Michigan Taxes Too Much’s Annual “Gander Awards.” The awards are randomly attributed to our wonderful policy makers and those who hold a substantial influence on government policy in the state of [chaos] Michigan. The year has more possibilities than I could fit here, and we will begin accepting nominations for next year’s awards in the next 12 months. Without further ado,
