Are you surprised he'd be this cruel? I'm not.

Sigh.

the Republican War on the Middle Class Working Man continues.

As long as the richest can keep their profits and bonuses, God will Bless the Good 'Ol USA.

So basically in Snyder's eyes, expecting the rich to pay a reasonable amount of taxes is bad but taxing pensions is a lovely idea. Why do people vote for these guys? They only give a shit about the wealthy.

I thought all tax increases were "job-killing"?

re: #4 Bulworth

I thought all tax increases were "job-killing"?

Only if they're on corporations and the very rich. Republicans are just fine with tax increases if it affects the middle and lower classes. Take the many who want a high national sales tax for example. That won't hurt the wealthy as much as it would hte middle and lower classes.

I am sure this tax increase will not include CEO parachutes.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that if Michigan begins taxing pensions, a whole lot of Republicans are going to be kicked out of office at the next state election.

State level Republicans (all over, not just MI) seem to be going out of their way to alienate huge blocks of voters.

FTA:

A brief filed by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, the Michigan Bankers Association and the Michigan Retailers Association says given Michigan’s aging population, the failure to tax pension income in the future would have a “major impact” on revenue. Capturing that revenue to provide business tax relief is a “rational policy decision.”

Wow, they must realize how politically tone-deaf that is, right?

Big business completely owns the government.
