I hope you will join me in voting NO on Proposal 1 today here in Michigan.
I consider a number of Michigan legislators my friends, and I've heard passionate arguments from both supporters and opponents of Proposal 1. Both sides agree that our roads need to be fixed, but disagree on how we should pay for it.
It's time that our state government prioritize spending and put safe roads before corporate welfare and film subsidies. Michigan families are having to make tough decisions, and we should be working to lighten the tax burden, not increasing it. Proposal 1 increases the sales tax from 6% to 7% and much of the new revenue will not even go to fixing our roads.
Vote NO on Proposal 1 today and tell Lansing that Michigan families are taxed enough already. To learn more, visit www.michigantaxpayers.com.
