This is why I appreciate money, and those who appreciate using it wisely as much as I do.
The ballot proposal would increase Michigan’s 6 percent sales tax [16.7%] to 7 percent as part of a complex plan to raise [registration fees 30% and double taxes on gas and diesel]
$1.2[$1.9] billion more annually for roads [and $410 million going to the IRS]. But the plan, hatched by Snyder and lawmakers last month, also earmarks $300 million for schools, $260 million for tax credits for the working poor [illegal aliens with up to four wives] and $95 million for municipal revenue sharing.
Mitchell said it’s the “grab bag” spending on items unrelated to road repairs that Snyder and Republican legislative leaders tacked on to get Democratic votes that motivates him to spend some of his own money trying to defeat the initiative.
“In order to repair our roads, we have to pay a $700 million toll to special interests — and that just astonishes me,” Mitchell said in an exclusive interview with The Detroit News. “I think it speaks for politics as usual. Special-interest lobbyists held our roads hostage and they got a $700 million toll.”

OABTW, has anyone heard U.S. Rep. Moolenaar, opine on the Republican governor’s CPA shell game? No? Go figure.
Moolenaar voted against the tax increase in the legislature, for whatever that's worth.
That and $5 will get a cup of yuppie coffee at Starbucks. What is Moolenaar doing about opposing this wasteful theft now? Or, any of his DowGOP predecessor buddies Schuette, and Camp, who selected him? All as quiet as a mouse s****ing on a piece of cotton.
