I cannot ignore this decision by the Governor & the Republican majority to rob Michigan residents unemployment benefits
I want to be fair and give the guy a chance, but I cannot ignore this mean-spirited and downright cruel decision by the Governor and the Republican majority to rob Michigan residents of much-needed unemployment benefits in this difficult economy. Don’t they know how many people are suffering and barely holding on? Incredible….
Proud to stand with activists from all over Michigan in support of labor rights for WI workers and all Americans. Thanks to Move On.Org for sponsoring the rally to Save the American Dream. We’ve got our work cut out for us. MI and America MUST be a place of opportunity for all – not just the folks at the top.
Now is no time for a tea party. Hope you are ready to stand and fight for the American Dream.
Beyond the massive state revenue sharing cuts, the Governor’s most damaging proposal for Michigan’s cities is the elimination of Brownfield and other tax credits that incentive’s redevelopment of urban centers. This one-two punch is a deadly prescription that will stunt growth and hobble our cities and state.
Our state cannot prosper if our cities do not prosper. Michigan needs cities and metro regions that work. The fastest growing states have the fastest growing cities in them – that is no accident. Michigan needs an urban agenda.
