Most of the manufactuing jobs have gone to China and India. Why pay someone a living wage in the states when someone in another country will do it for
$.50 an hour.
All I can say is someone sold us out.
Our Governor Jennifer Granholm has done a horrible job, without even bringing up the Auto industry she has let the state commerce completely fall
Instead of offering incentives to small business her administration levies higher taxes. What needs to be done is a major benefits cut back for
everyone at the top and all the governmental employees, because we can't squeeze blood out of a stone.
The current government benefits and social programs were established around a booming economy and now we have a shell of what was. Since all the
little people have to tighten their belts so should the government.
We lost Pfizer which employed 10,000 jobs in the Ann Arbor area, this one should have never happened and Granholm sat back and did almost nothing.
Next Comerica bank left Michigan for Dallas.
Michigan job loss is the longest since the Great Depression.
This idiot of a Governor wants to increase taxes more than we have now?
We have some of the highest taxes in the country right now. Average home taxes in the suburban area are about 3 to 4 thousand dollars a year. I have
friends with new homes paying as high as 15 thousand a year in taxes for a 3500 sq ft home, this is highway robbery already and she wants to add more?
Time to cut all government health plans and then everyone in the government sector will see exact what the rest of us are enduring with ridiculous
rising medical costs, then we need to cut pensions, and wages too.
Again if the money isn't flowing like when Michigan had a booming economy, then it is time to cut way back and lower taxes to match what people are
making. Granholm is living in a bubble.
Government Shutdown in Michigan October 1st
Democratic Governor Granholm says she will not agree to massive cuts in these programs, unless there is also a tax increase, making it clear
that there are only mild tactical differences between the two parties. Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
