Breaking news February 23: CTM Chairman McMillin to Board of State Canvassers: Proposed language “Still Misleads Voters”
Don’t be fooled: Proposal 1 in the May 5 special election would raise the Michigan Sales Tax and the Gas Tax.
Michigan doesn’t need higher taxes to fix our roads or fund our schools. It needs less government spending elsewhere, which it could easily afford.
On Tuesday, May 5th, 2015, Michigan voters will decide whether or not to raise Michigan’s sales tax to 7%. Supporters of the tax claim Michigan’s roads need the money — but as with the gas tax today, most of the money wouldn’t even go to roads.
In fact, Michigan government annual spending skyrocketed by $2.7 billion since just four years ago — not counting $2 billion higher in federal spending for a whopping $4.7 billion budget increase.
Yet incredibly, taxpayers are now being told by the “Powers That Be” that they need to pay an even greater share of their money, just to fix our roads and fund our schools!
It’s about one thing: more money for the politicians and special interests in Lansing.
That’s why we say:
We are Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan.
And if you’d like your taxes not to rise…
Here then, is the complete set of laws to be decided by the May 5 ballot question. If you can make sense of it all, consider running for office — you’re more qualified than most of them!Proposal 1. To be decided by Michigan voters May 5, 2015Table of Contents
