This is a Very Bad Idea

A tree is supported by its roots and if the roots are unhealthy, the tree is going to be unhealthy. This is common sense.

Tax-payers, individual and corporate, are the root of the tree of tax revenues. A tax base is supported by tax-payers, be they individuals paying income and sales taxes or businesses paying business and corporate income taxes. If these two are not making money there will be no taxes collected, thus no revenues. Michigan needs more businesses and our people need to make more money.

A cut in business taxes would improve businesses which would have a few positive effects. More businesses means more employers, thus more income tax, and simply more businesses, thus more business tax, as well as less welfare and unemployment compensation, thus cutting costs.

It's not going to happen in Michigan.

As far as ergonomics goes, that is another issue for another time and should not even be in the same article. (You have to read carefully to see that ergonomics and taxes were seperate bills, but this article wants them connected in our minds.)

Sheeesh ... sounds like she wants to try everything to kill your state economy. How the hell did she ever get in? ... uh .... never mind ... she probably promised her way into the position, and did nothing, in typical LIEberal fashion...
