I remember taking a drive in august 1990 along west michigan near the lake north of I94. I saw a sign in someones yard in country said something to effect of " taxes, taxes, taxes sick of taxes!" That stuck with me. I think this rings true in alot of people. I talked to friend in cameron Missouri who told me his yearly taxes r $400. And he was complaining. Then i relayed how much taxes r around michigan in certain areas. For the people who have money to pay these taxes it might be ok. But what about single people who have to pay everything in household? I guess u can't fight city hall. Where is the headlee amendment relevant? Cities need more money. County is broke. Didn't they ever consider things when these ridiculous salaries, pensions,bonuses etc were being formulated? I feel that people who wanna donate to these bottomless pits should do so. But leave people who r struggling alone and not force them to pay.
