– whining about taxes

Feb 27, 2006

Oakland County Michigan’s politician L. Brooks Patterson is talking about a possible ballot proposal to cut corporate taxes further by completely eliminating the Single Business Tax. As usual, he pretends this will create jobs.

Year after year since the 1990's, Lansing has been cutting taxes for businesses. So what has been happening? Michigan has been losing jobs.

Cutting taxes to the rich and big business does NOT create jobs. It only lines the pockets of the wealthy.
