I think Snyder should be recalled. His budget attacks seniors on fixed income pensions while letting dividend income and capital gains exemptions get a free ride....he is seeking to tax seniors right out of the state...let alone attacking working poor..trying to generate 1.4 bil in new revenue in the backs of seniors (900mil) and working poor (300mil)to pay for 1.2 bil in tax credits for business doesn't pass the smell test.. there is nothing fair about as income derived from dividends are shielded from state income tax...funny nothing has been said about taxing that income?? This is an orchestrated attack to raise taxes on those who can least afford it......have fun voters u elected a real scoundrel

Lets not forget it also attacks those retirees and property owners that own homes by diminishing homestead exemption...another tax increase while it rewards the rich with exemptions on dividend income..so why should a senior be double taxed both their pensions and homestead exemption to pay for 1.2 bil dollar cut for business..only a fool would accept this nonsense

The middle class and poor get all the pain, the rich get our share. Frank Lunz's Orwellian double speak of shared sacrifice. Thomas Frank will be on Thom Hartmann's 9:00 P.M. show tonight. (3-18-11).
