My fellow residents of Midland Michigan can be prepared for a great celebration – one so big that Vice President Joe Biden will be coming to our very town. What is the occasion for this visit and the huge celebration? Obama and Biden have launched “Recovery Summer”- six weeks for them to highlight their stimulus jobs. Biden is coming here Monday for the groundbreaking of the new Dow Kokam advanced battery manufacturing facility, which was given a $161 million grant from the government. If you are interested in learning how well the government created jobs helped in the last depression, I highly recommend Great Myths of the Great Depression by Larry Reed, my personal favorite Mackinac Center pamphlet.
