    I have absolutely no idea where you have gotten this notion from. That would be completely ridiculous.

    Actually, it is a full-on f*** you. It basically tells the voters in Michigan that they must overturn this law, so that they regain the power to overturn that law. How is that not telling them that they have no idea what they are doing, and therefore should not have the authority to do it? I see this "law" as similar in nature to "Jim Crow", in the sense that it is an attempt to disenfranchise voters who disagree with them. True it does nothing on the front of electing representation, it does, however, take away the power of the voters to directly repeal any law that the legislature wishes. All they have to do is attach an appropriation to a bill, and "poof" no more power to repeal via referendum, the people have no, direct, power in the matter.
