Ho-Ho-Ho, Merry Christmas?!

Dec 7, 2015

Right before Christmas, new multimillion-dollar tax breaks for a Las Vegas corporation called Switch are being debated in Lansing.

The head of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation said to the Detroit News that “he could not say how much the proposed tax breaks for Switch would be worth annually.” Huh?! Won’t this blow a hole in the Michigan budget?

And speaking of holes, the Governor and Legislature just approved tax and fee increases on ordinary people. They said this was to “pay for the roads.”

What SHOULD be paying for the roads are CORPORATE TAXES!
