With all the cuts the new govenor plans, only the have nots will be effected the cuts to state police, funding for local gov and their police and fire, will mean you will see crime go up up up, you will need a gun when you go to the store, When there is no police around as their jobs have been cut, it will return to the wild west, you will need to be armed as the have nots will feed their kids one way or another. And just think we have many more years of Rick!!

The governors "plan" is to reward the wealthy who voted him in using the work and the labor of the middle class and working poor. His business "profit" tax part of his plan has a major flaw, a business owner can avoid a "profit" for years without hurting their own income level by having the "business" provide as many write-offs as they can put down on a tax return. Hence, no profit tax being paid and we still have a huge hole in the budget that only more revenue will fill, not by taxing the retired who are spending the vast majority of their income on the state sales tax, property tax, use taxes, gas taxes.....etc. More people will leave the state and take their pension money with them which leads to a continuing downward spiral of Michigan's economy. Republicans don't care about any one other than themselves and never look at the unintended consequences of their misguided proposals.
