MICHIGAN: ACTION NEEDED NOW AGAINST HOUSE BILL 5229

Last December we celebrated that Tax Payers had Won! However, we warned it would be a short-lived “victory” and that lawmakers were sure to push this huge tax increase again.  Well it didn’t take long.  They ARE at it again!

WE NEED ALL HANDS ON DECK TO STOP THIS!  NOW!

Want to Pay $500 or more in New Taxes?
Now that we have your attention, please read to see how you can stop this HUGE tax increase!

Please share this email [send page link or copy/paste in email] with other like-minded people (who wants taxes for transit?)!

Your legislators are trying to raise your taxes to fund the RTA (regional transit authority).

Yes, you read that right. Even Republican lawmakers are voting to increase your taxes!

Voters in Macomb and Oakland counties opposed higher property taxes for mass transit in 2016 and then again 2018.

But big-government, tax crazed interests are at it again.
Big corporate lobbyists want state lawmakers to get $billions in new property taxes—on your house— for the Regional Transit Authority with House Bill 5229.

House Bill 5229 would allow a Regional Transit Authority to have taxing powers that go around the Headlee property tax caps.  This  Authoroity will allow local taxing units to enter into unlimited loan/bonds without constraints.

How much will this cost you?

Take the market value of your home, divide it in half, and then multiple that number by .005.  So for every $200,000 your house is worth, you can expect an increase of about $1000.   Now do the math on your house.

This could push seniors out of their homes!
New home buyers?  Pay even more in taxes and do so FOREVER.

And for what purpose?  All these new taxes will do is fund more empty buses that you most likely will NEVER use and most likely never even see.

Lawmakers could vote on HR 5229 as early as this week!  

Public hearings? Nope.  Public input? Nope.

Contact your legislators NOW!

Call the House Speaker Lee Chatfield and tell him NO to HB5229: 517-373-2629

Tell him what this will do to your taxes.
Tell him you can’t afford more property taxes.
Tell him it is wrong to remove protections of the Headlee Amendment.
Tell him to stand up against the lobbyists and stand with the taxpayers.

Also Call:
Jason Wentworth Speaker Pro Tempore 517-373-8962
Triston Cole majority Floor Leader 517 373-0829
Call these two state representatives on the Committee for Transportation:

Lynn Afendoulis 517 373-0218 and Beth Griffin 517 373-0839 and/or email them.

LynnAfendoulis@house.mi.gov    BethGriffin@house.mi.gov

If you’re in Oakland County, attend County Executive David Coulter’s Town Hall January 15th at the White Lake Library at 10:30 AM.  The purpose of the Town Hall is to rally your support to increase your taxes!  We encourage you to attend and tell him how unhappy you are with his new tax proposal!

Let your friends and family know! Please share and ask them to share. 

Let’s blow up the Lansing phones.

They could vote on this as early as Tuesday!

One more thing.  Some may say this does not affect them.  WRONG.  If HR 5229 passes, mass transit is only the beginning.  Under the bill taxes can and will increase using a taxing authority for every problem/project the spend happy elites envision.  Authorities could be used to fund pension shortfalls, more bike trails, environmental clean ups, climate change, blah, blah  etc…..etc….etc….

Help stop this boondoggle! Or be taxed out of your home.

Looking out for you!

Democrats Quietly Pass Reparations for WHAT?

We need TAX REFORM and a purging of CONGRESS. These people are now funding their special interest groups to assure continued votes and to rape more labor from hard working Americans. ENOUGH!  We the PEOPLE must demand a FAIR TAX based on new sales and eliminate INCOME AND PROPERTY TAXES.  We that work and own property are carrying the burden of taxes so CONGRESS TRAITORS can squander on their SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS destroying common decency in America!  Again I say ENOUGH!

AIM Insight: SES Plan To Destroy America Revealed

Senior Executive Service (SES) usurped the Civil Service when Congress and CARTER signed all the gov’t over to them when they created them in 1978/79.  Top 500 are all lawyers and/or judges and most are also CIA.  They create law, policy, rules, statutes, codes, & regulations to keep we the people under their control and to protect themselves from us.  They control ALL AGENCIES, they’re un-elected, cannot be fired, and set their own wages.  If one happens to get removed from one position they’re just removed to another.  No requirements and no background checks necessary.

Michigan House Approves Individual Tax Cuts

The Michigan House has overwhelmingly approved tax cuts that would go further than addressing an unintended consequence of the federal tax overhaul.
Bills approved Thursday with bipartisan support would gradually raise Michigan’s personal tax exemption to $4,800 and create a $100 tax credit for residents age 62 and older.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder favors keeping intact and slightly boosting the personal exemption to $4,500, but warns larger tax cuts would jeopardize his plan to boost road spending.
Republican Rep. Jim Tedder, a sponsor of one bill, says the economy and budget are in good shape, and it’s a “perfect time to deliver real tax relief.”

The Senate recently passed its own tax cuts.  It remains to be seen if Snyder and Republicans who control the Legislature can cut a deal.  Source LINK

A Modest Proposal: Let’s Sunset The Tax Code

1835 Original Seal for MichiganIn the foundation of our nation income was not to be taxed and 74,000 pages is 329 times as long as the English translation of the Bible! (Statistic from a company called, “Commerce Clearing House.”)  Taxing of the people is out of control and “We”…need to reform it!!

A MODEST PROPOSAL: LET’S SUNSET THE TAX CODE

“So, our tax code is nearly 74,000 pages long. Tax reform has been one of those unicorn issues in Congress. We talk about it, politicians campaign on it, but in the end; it never goes anywhere.
