We need to impose a straight across tax, so that what is left of the middle class doesn't have to carry the whole burden. Let the upper class start helping out instead of them worrying how they can increase their pay and get bonuses.

why not bring back the food tax? 2 cents on the dollar. Rich people spend more on food. poor people that have "bridge cards" wouldn't be affected and budget gets fixed. Problem solved.

Why not get rid of the whole floor of the Cadilac building that Granholm rents but rarely uses. Also let all of the Gov. pay for their own medical instead of the citizens paying 72% of it. Let Granholm pay her own utility bills instead of gov. money. Pay for her own housing, her own vehicles, her childrens schooling, put them in public schools.

Think my uncle stated it best by saying this.

Take the bailout money and give one million each to the 40 million elderly. Make them retire buy a house and a car. Thus would bring 40 million jobs end the housing crisis and rejuvinate the auto indusrty at the same time. Plus whatever is left thier kids get when they pass.
