GAS TAX HIKE GOP?!

MI Taxed Too Much Already SMALL

“There is no part of the administration of government that requires extensive information and a thorough knowledge of the principles of political economy, so much as the business of taxation. The man who understands those principles best will be least likely to resort to oppressive expedients, or sacrifice any particular class of citizens to the procurement of revenue. It might be demonstrated that the most productive system of finance will always be the least burdensome.”
Alexander Hamilton: Federalist No. 35, 1788

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.” John Marshall – Founding Father & 4th U.S. Chief Justice

 

Michigan Citizens,

This is going to be a short Newsletter because we addressed this situation in April
GAS TAX: What Republicans SHOULD Do

WhitmerThe bottom line is that IF THIS IS TRUE (Skirkey claims it isn’t “Shirkey said Tuesday afternoon he has “no clue” where the gas tax speculation came from but would “like to know.” The apparent leaker “wasn’t me,” he said.) for GOP leaders to concede, compromise and fold like a cheap suite to Whitmer for ANY gas tax is political suicide.

At this point Job One for Republicans is to oppose Whitmer’s policies which are the antithesis of Republican Platform policy principles. You don’t deal and concede with the enemy you defeat them especially when the majority of Michiganders support your position, Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarians, NONE  of these people want a gas tax in ANY way shape or form. To consider conceding is unconscionable to the grassroots and just plain flat out stupid!

What can WE do?
