We Do Not Need A Tax Hike by Akindele Akinyemi



It was brought to my attention this morning that State House Democrats passed a bill to pass a $200 Million Dollar TAX INCREASE disguised as tipping fees on garbage. In other words, if you have garbage you will have to pay more.

Detroit should be paying attention to what their beloved elected Democratic leadership is doing. You already cannot even pay the damn water bills let alone your car note and now DEMOCRATS want a tax increase on garbage.

Now keep this in mind of how State Democratic House members stayed up last night to get this passed along party lines. No Republicans voted for this foolishness. Even a Republican who hates Detroit had enough sense NOT to vote for a tax increase. I hope those who voted for Granholm last November see what is going on.

Especially you independents who lean Democratic. While you were too lazy and trifling to READ what Dick DeVos was offering Detroit you took the lazy ass route and voted for someone who has increased the number of young people moving out of state (like what I am trying to do).

What is more interesting is that these same Democrats (who people were excited to see get back in office) pushed these bills through, without public discussion. Were there ANY focus groups, neighborhood association meetings or town hall meetings on this tax increase?

This is called being stupid at its best.

Ridiculous public policy, and Detroit legislators need to be held accountable for this as well as out county. I have yet to find one person in the city to explain what is the best way for re-populate Detroit. The grassroots community have no answer. Democrats think raising my taxes is the key when they can barely afford it themselves.

This is no more than a stealth tax hike that was disguised as "tipping fees" on garbage disposal. If you have private garbage collection in your community, you will have to pay. The Democrats also passed increased fees on a number of other services.

Our Democratic leadership have no love for urban communities across Michigan. They want our vote every election cycle and even come into our churches but when they are elected they are afraid to stand up and say "hey, I cannot raise taxes in my community because poor people are already being taxed. We are already leaving Michigan because of the tax hikes."

I am dying to hear from my Democratic colleagues of why they support tax hikes when we cannot afford it in the first place. I am also love to hear of why we cannot keep young people in Michigan.

Your move.

Coopted Ex- Progressive - It is a ggod idea to increase garbage dumping fees in Michigan to decrease the trash that people ship here because are garbage dumping fees are so below market rate -
It is a good idea because eventually our children will have to clean up the toxic enviroment that all this garbage dumping because of below market rate fees that Michigan allows
But Republicans don't care about the environment they only worship $
But the Bible will judge the sins of the destroyers of the earth - environmental polluters
"And the nations were angry and (T)hy wrath is come. and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that (T)hou shouldest give reward unto (T)hy servants the prophets and to the saints, and them that fear (T)hy name, small and great, and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." Revelation 11:18 Bible

It is not a good idea because this increase in garbage fee, according to your own democratic leadership, has nothing to do with Out-state trash!!!!

garbage dumping that republicans support right? Try recycling before you tax me on garbage..something I cannot afford.

Why did you misinterpret that scripture?

Coopted Ex Progressive - Who claims to be a Christian yet calls God's creation "SwampThings - Hoodrats - Ns - Scum"
Yet the Bible reports that Christ died for & loves all His Creation
Coopted Ex- Progressive who "Prophesied in the Name of God that Devos would win the Governorship" without understanding the the reward of 1 that prophesies falsely in the Name of God is death
Explain how I misinterpreted Revelations 11:18?
Let's be clear under Republican Racist/Fascist Mi Governor Engler MI's trash fees were established below market rates - to attract $ & the Republicans resist raising trash fees to market rates to discourage unnecessary garbage
The Bible states that God will punish those that destroy the earth - Unnecessary Environmental Pollution destroys the Earth Revelation 11:18 Bible
