PLEASE VOTE

The polls open on May 5th to vote on Proposal 1.  This proposal will determine if the sales tax is raised from 6 cents to 7 cents in Michigan.  If you think this will never pass, don’t count on it.  One of the problems is when people think like that and don’t bother to go to the polls to vote. Those in favor of it passing are counting on it!   The fewer people going to the polls may just pass this bill.

Proposal 1 Road Funding by Larry Leidline

Posted by Tim Lintz on May 1, 2015 at 11:42am 0 Comments

My opinion on the Proposal 1 Road Funding is that it is not a road funding proposal and does not even meet the criteria as a well thought out proposal. It is up for vote because Lansing could not agree on funding and left it up to the voters. Further, it represents a failure of the Governor and Legislature to do the job they were elected to do. Only a slight majority of the $2 Billion it raises goes to road funding, parts of this proposal go to increased educational funding,…

State Rankings for Services Received vs. Taxes Paid - Michigan is 46th.

The Blaze.com has an article ranking states according to the value of services received vs. the taxes paid.  Michigan ranked 46th, meaning there are only four states that are worse than Michigan.  If Proposal 1 passes, Michigan will probably have the disgraceful stigma of being the worst state in the nation for services rendered vs. taxes paid.  Below is a link to the article:…See More

MICHIGAN IS TAXED ENOUGHT by Carol Brown

March 31, 2015 Michigan is Taxed Enough AlreadyThe television advertisements make it sound like Michigan Ballot Prop 1 is Michigan’s last chance to fix our roads. It uses dishonest language to deceive us into thinking the gas tax will be eliminated. It does not say it will be replaced with a higher wholesale tax that Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan estimate will raise gas prices by about 10 cents a gallon, raise state sales tax to 7%, raise vehicle registration taxes and increase our federal…See More

New Michigan Senate Building to cost $134 million - not $70 million.

On Tuesday night, March 3, 2015, our guest speaker, Mr. Scott Hagerstrom spoke about the Tax Proposal 1 on the May 5,2015  ballot. As part of his presentation he mentioned that our Rulers, I mean government legislators, in Lansing have voted to build a new $70 million Senate Office Building.  Unfortunately, it will cost almost double that amount.  The government will borrow money to build the building and the interest cost on the debt over a 10 year period will be $66 million.  The interest of…See More
