Good Morning all you folks who know how a government should be run. How ever have you noticed what is going on in Washington. More tax payers dollars wasted on socialist programs! Did you hear the comments made by our fellow citizens durning the Florida town hall meeting with the anointed one. Maybe we should start to focus all our efforts on the REAL cause of our problems. Yes the politicians are the results of poor judgements made by the stupid and uninformed voters. The voters are the REAL dummies for the way we elect these screwballs to offices. Look at Michigan. We have a governor who blames everyone else for Michigan's problems. She has yet to take the blame for our depression for the last 7 years. While she is not the best choice for governor, I have to look at the whole picture. The voters of the state of Michigan are the ones who elected her and still think she walks on water. Have you ever heard any of these folks talk when interviewed by our drive by media? They don't have enough brains to come in out of the rain. Until we have an equal press, and folks get educated not INDOCTTRINATED can we atart to solve our issues. We need to get rid of the I.R.S. and a fair tax is the best way to go. However it has to be at the National level for all of us working or retired to get any benefit from the burden of supporting the 42% of the American people who pay NO taxes. And the 12 million or so who are here illegally.
God bless you for all you are trying to do, and lets all work together to take back our country for the socialist.
Hi Robert , Pres. Obama loved having our state's Gov. Jennifer Granholm around him prior to his inauguration. Why his positive impulse over someone whose ideas of leadership and fiscal discipline have been found lacking? (Maybe it's her artful rhetoric?) For too long we Michiganders have been victims of our legislators' big-spending policies made possible by an income tax code rife with poltical favor-making - enhancing their own power, but making our families and businesses poorer. Most recently, under the guise of fixing Michigan's tax system, the legislature enacted the Michigan Business Tax. Trouble is, the MBT still remains a gross receipts tax, levying a tax even if a business isn't profitable - which was the problem with the Single Business Tax it was designed to replace. The MBT continues to penalize entrepreneurship and productivity, and Michigan is rapidly losing businesses, jobs, and families - daily !
When I learned about the Michigan FairTax plan, I decided to quit feeling like a victim, and decided to do something to help change Michigan's economic environment - and I'd like to invite you to join us! Thousands of us are working hard to get the word out about a fairer, progressive consumption tax - the Michigan FairTax. Our goal is to SCRAP the Michigan income tax because the system is broken. In order to give Michigan voters the power to choose, we are laying the groundwork for a ballot drive to get the Michigan FairTax on the 2010 general election ballot.
The Michigan FairTax will both simplify, and stimulate, Michigan's business / jobs climatein a dramatic and ongoing manner. It will replace the income tax and current sales tax, with a consumption tax (sales tax at point of retail sale) while un-taxing all purchases up to poverty level - this means no more withholding of state tax from Michigan wage-earners' paychecks.
What's more, every Michigan resident-family will receive a monthly "prebate" check, in amount based on family size (.0975 x $ [ poverty level per family size] ). This will ensure that NO Michigan family will EVEN BEGIN paying the MI FairTax on goods / services unless, or until, they exceed poverty-level spending. Thus, the MI FairTax rate would effectively be 0% on all monthly family spending up to the monthly poverty level, thereafter it would be 9.75%. A reasonable average effective rate, inferred, would be about 5.5% (that's without putting anything away!) Monies placed into savings are not available to spend, and therefore would result in a further effective tax rate reduction.

Under a FairTax system, points of collection will be dramatically reduced (from millions of individuals to considerably fewer retailers, many of whom are already collecting sales tax). With a Michigan FairTax, income tax-- returns, audits, interest, and penalites vanish.
Currently, goods / services prices and fees carry income / payroll tax compliance costs - "a hidden tax," ultimately paid by us. The FairTax will externalize these costs, making them visible. Michigan exporters will then be able to jettison the FairTax, prior to shipment, making Michigan products more competitive, globally. The MI FairTax is NOT applied to non-retail, business-to-business purchases, as this inseparably embeds taxation costs in prices of finished goods and services.
This plan is revenue neutral, as it-- ends "first fruit" confiscation of wages, stops the practice of hiding consumer taxes in retail prices, makes the true cost of gov't visible, and properly pays for gov't as we meet personal and family needs. Take action! - JOIN OUR TAX REFORM ARMYto bring Michigan back!

Made popular by the federal FairTax bill (H.R. 25, which was either co-sponsored or otherwise endorsed by several 2008 presidential candidates), this approach to taxation reaches across the political spectrum

My biggest concern about the current administration, congress, country, and or the leftist agenda is?
Socialism and communism, corruption, and defense of our country against radical groups. Weaking our military, and a return to the days of the Clinton Administration.
