"Progress Michigan's editorial opinion article published on the Detroit News about Michigan's current economy before Governor Rick Snyder's 4th State of the State Speech, is right on point -- the State of Michigan is Poor. We would support the groups' statement by expressing, "The State of Michigan is Ridicious".Michigan over the last three years plus of Governor Rick Snyder's tenure has been an economic test case of the HAVE'S and the HAVE'S NOT'S. The recent news of Michigan's economy having a $970 billion dollar surplus in the states financial coffers, resulted directly from cutting lifelines of upper mobility for middle and lower class residents.
These factors can change if the Candidate running against Governor Snyder, former Congressman Mark Schauer of Battle Creek, takes a populist stance on important issues impacting Michigan's ability to provide good paying job opportunities for its' citizenry, which has lead to an exodus of needed population and income from our state.
-Fully Repeal Michigan Public Act 436 of 2012 and all parts of its legislative conjoined twin, Public Act 72 of 1990 from ever re-appearing as any part of Michigan Compiled Laws, again.
In addition, give Municipalities BACK their portion of State Shared Taxable Revenue and end the $1.8 BILLION dollar tax cut to C & S Corporations in Michigan that has not shown the ability to add JOBS to state with its' 8.8% unemployment rate.
