What a shame it is that the Majority Party in Lansing, need guidance with their allowance like little children require, but thank God for the Good People at Americans For Prosperity looking out for us taxpayers in Michigan, with 13 tour stops around the state.
First Tour stop:
Don't Raise MI Taxes Tour Stop (St. Clair Shores)
Thank you for your ongoing efforts, Mr. Hagerstrom! As noted from an mLive screed, it should be highlighted who the Legislator held responsible for the latest MIaGOP Tax Hike scheme on Michigan residents.
A new plan taking shape in the state House, spearheaded by Republican [questionable] Rep. Wayne Schmidt of Traverse City, is expected to include increased gasoline taxes and registration fees. The proposal also would exempt fuel purchases from the state's six percent sales tax, which is collected at the pump but is not used to fix roads.
Congratulations, District 104 voters. Feeling dumb about sending Wayne "Show Pony" back for another term in Lansing, yet? I doubt it. But wait, there's more!
House Speaker Jase Bolger, R-Marshall, signaled support for the plan on Thursday, telling reporters that the legislature must "be committed to solving the full problem," including making sure that all taxes paid at the pump go toward roads.
What were your words about raising taxes, Speaker Bolger?
"Taxpayers should be the last place we look". Never did look here, did you? You can run, but you can't hide, Mr. Speaker. Methinks, I hit the bullseye with the accuracy of both assessments.
