You can't make this stuff up! According to reports in the business weekly, Crain’s Detroit Business, immediately following a junket on Mackinac Island for the politically connected, Governor Snyder and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan took a secret, taxpayer funded trip to Asia leaving a sea of staff to cover their tracks. The governor and noted conservative stalwart (#sarcasm) Mike Duggan want us to trust that they have the best interests of Michigan’s taxpayers in mind. If they can’t be up front about where they’re going and why, you have a right to be skeptical about their intentions.
For eight years, Michigan taxpayers “trusted” Governor Jennifer Granholm and her allies in the legislature while they pursued a disastrous economic policy of picking winners and losers. Time and again, they created special deals and targeted legislation to lure favored industries and specific employers into Michigan, with the promise of unique tax breaks.
That’s why we strongly oppose Senate Bills 242, 243, and 244, a package of legislation currently before the House Tax Policy Committee that would remake Michigan’s tax policy to reward politically connected big businesses at the expense of local small businesses and the job makers who already drive Michigan’s economy.
