Canton reaction differs sharply on Snyder budget

There are 5 comments on the Milford Times story from Feb 20, 2011, titled Canton reaction differs sharply on Snyder budget. In it, Milford Times reports that:

Gov. Rick Snyder's far-reaching budget proposal has drawn sharp criticism from Canton retirees whose pensions would be taxed for the first time, but some local leaders called Snyder's plan a bold, long-overdue step toward fixing a beleaguered state reeling in debt and archaic policies.

If my pension is to be taxed then how much will those making more tan $250,000/ be taxed? Gov Snyder where's the "fair and equal contribution" coming from?
We need to pull together - How much of your personal worth {not your token salary) are you willing to give?
I'll bet you're paying national taxes of 15% on income from net capital gains. Who needs a salary - you would have to pay more taxes on your salary.
Voters out there wake up!! He is corporate greed personified.

What the hell you are have to be the laziest and stupidest people.... LEARN TO SAVE and LIVE within your means, I just dont get paying people that dont work... ITS the dumbest thing ever. INVEST SAVE get educated on intelligent spending more importantly INTELLIGENT saving. SO sad to see people pretending to have money buying houses they cant afford and driving cars the shouldn't have, then crying about it. WAKE up!

WTF are you rambling on about? People that have pensions PAID into them their entire careers, and paid taxes. At much higher rates than the super rich. Federal taxes and health care costs come out of pensions. We live in a society and we all need to help those less fortunate. I would willingly pay taxes for social programs to help them, like the 99ers. You are blaming the victims of bank and mortgage deregulations, you are a hater, therefore you are a right-winger. Go away!
