<quoted text>You really don't get it I am neither of the above mentioned emotions just aware of whats really going on. Just because you have blinders on does not mean the rest of us have to. Just wait until the full frontal assault of the Unaffordable Health Care Act hits you in the face then you will know. Or when you retire and your meager pension or retirement account gets taxed then you will get it, sorry you are so clueless and closed minded to reality. And when they come for that 401K there will be no one to turn to..
I really have to take issue with this Shoeless, "Or when you retire and your meager pension or retirement account gets taxed then you will get it,..."

It's Snyder that is going after pensions for taxes. Gone after property tax credits etc. on probably the last homes these people will ever own. Part of the frontal assault to offset the $1.6Billion business tax cut; "The Republican governor signed the sweeping tax changes in May 2011. To offset a $1.6 billion business tax cut, he and GOP legislators approved a $1.4 billion increase on individuals, which included setting the income tax rate at 4.25 percent instead of letting it eventually drop to 3.9 percent in 2015 under a previous law".

There is no possible way if business should actually flood into Michigan any increases in employment will offset the increased taxation on retirees pensions, what few pensions there actually are now, and retirement plans.
In all seriousness this is, whether intended to be or not, an assault on those least likely to be able to increase their incomes to offset, or even level off, their increased tax burden.
I have not yet seen any reports where Snyder has changed his political party affiliation from Republican to Democrat or Liberal or Progressive.
(a metaphor) In the vast majority of criminal cases one is convicted on the preponderance of evidence far more than any eye witness testimony. And in many cases where there is no eye witness accounts.
The evidence is abundant that conservatives are not government reducers or fitness experts nor tax relievers for anyone under the higher income ranges.
