Shut it down.

Do not let the “polling” numbers fool you.  The Detroit News Reports:

While lawmakers are focusing on budget cuts, more than a quarter of Michiganians say that’s not the way out of the budget crisis, according to a statewide poll. Only 28 percent of likely voters support making cuts only, according to a poll by EPIC-MRA of Lansing. Some level of revenue increases to balance the budget was favored by 64 percent of respondents. The survey of 800 Michiganians taken Sept. 16-21 has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

That 28% Might well be the people who foot the bill. Maybe next year if our legislators put off what NEEDS to be done,  it will be 14%.. if you get my meaning.

Shut it down.. and Put the Fair Tax motions in place.  Government does not apply burdens fairly, and Michigan government has lead the way in purposeful destruction of fairness for the last several years.

    Fair tax? When are you people going to finally get it thru your heads that you do not owe government a fee simply because you work for a living? Michigans current income tax is piggy backed on the federal liablity – Which does not exist for 95 percent of the people!

    Why replace a non existant liablity with something that you can be held liable for?

    I have a better idea. Abolish all income taxes, property taxes, etc. Raise the sales tax to 10 percent like Texas. And any new specific exicise tax, must be used for the item specified, and not just dummped into the pig feeding troff, aka the general fund as thats where the sales taxes will go.

      In Michigan the Fair Tax IS a sales tax.. Its pretty straight forward. See here:

      We are on the same page.. I am in total support of consumption taxes ALONE. IT would manage inflationary tendencies, would be TRULY voluntary, and the most fair.
