OK Michigan did something new and novel. They tried the conservative aproach to taxes. Michigan gave a tax break to the movie industry so they would come to Michigan and film. The tax cut was excepted by the film industry and they came to Michigan in droves. just like they have gone to Canada. Even Mickael Moore went to Canada so he could make more money on his capitalist movie. Ok back to the point. We know Mighigan lowered taxes for that one industry while raising it on the other. The lower taxes on the one industry made Mighigan more jobs and created more money for Michigan because of the lower taxes for that industry. We also know that many of our industries that have been hit with Michigans high tax have left to states like TX and FL that have lower taxes. These things aren't theory they are fact. Can we agree on that much? We are seeing what is happening to California is no different then what has been happening to Michigan. The taxes go up and businesses and people leave. When those businesses and people leave so does the revenue from those businesses and jobs. But what do these progressive states do to fix the shortfall they created? They raise taxes again to cover the lost revenue. And what do you think happens when they raise taxes in your state? Think about it. I know it's a tough one for you tax raising Democrats. What do you think would happen if Michigan did the same thing they did for all businesses in Michigan? Do you think more businesses and industries would come back too Michigan? Now for the kicker. What do you think wouled happen to the American economy if the Fed raised the tax rates for companies. Would we become more competative in the global economy? Would businesses want to come here or would they go over seas? It's not always about labor cost when it comes to locating a business. It is a factor but not the only factor as you can see by this simple example and proof that this theory works. So why do you think the Democrats refuse to aknowlege these economic facts? Could it be that before they can work and government can start growing again they would have to make some hard cuts to the government programs they so dearly love? They do always throw the teachers,police and firefighters under the bus when they are talking about making cuts. They do that as a way to scare us into raising the taxes that will do more damage to our future economy. Raising taxes if just a quick fix for the larger problem. The goverment is here to help us do well. We are not here to make the government do well and make money. We have been watching the Democrats dismantal and weaken our country little by little. And the Republicans didn't do much better in the past either. But the Progressives in power right now are trying to tell us that the American dream of making it big is a sin. The companies that make money and creat jobs are evil and need to be punished. They punish these 'greedy' business by taxing them. That is the weapon they have and use all the time. Why would you bite the hand that feeds all of us? Is it because they are too weak to make the cuts in the budget so we can lower taxes and get on the path of economic growth? Or is the Federal government trying to distroy what we had so they can
"fundamentaly transform America"? Like most Americans we know something stinks in Washington, but we just don't know why it stinks. Have fun my progressive Democrat friends quizing yourselves on this subject. I know you on the left will find some way to make this a lot more complex. But it isn't that hard to understand. So while the Democrats are making boogy men out of the companies and people that give us our jobs and food on our table. We need to think of ways to cut the greedy government out of their control, over us and our economy. This is a country of "We the people". Not of the government and for the government. And thank God for our Constitution. For without it we would all be slaves to our government more so then we already are. God bless America and our Constitution.
