This is how far $100 goes in Michigan

According to a new analysis by the Tax Foundation, Michiganders get a little extra bang for our buck.

The study, which pooled data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, quotes the value of $100 in Michigan at about $106, which goes a long way on dollar draft night. 



While it'd sure be nice to have 100 big ones extend even further (we're looking at you, Mississippi), at least we don't have it as bad as California ($88.57) or worse, Washington D.C. ($84.60).
