Default where your taxes go!!

Interesting Information for People Who Live In Michigan


After doing a little research I have discovered¦

1 Governor Granholm is the 3rd highest paid Gov in the country at $177,000 in salary. This does not count her $60,000 expense account. Only the Governor of New York and Calf make more than her!

2. Governor Granholm's husband has 3 assistants paid by the state. The highest paid assistant makes $117,000 a year.

3. Our state Congressmen and Senators are the 2nd highest paid at $79,650 in salary. This does not count their $20,000 expense account. Only California Congressmen and Senators make more.

4. Our teachers are the 3rd highest paid teachers in the country.

5. Our cigarette tax is the 4th highest in the country.

6. Our Corporate Income Tax rate is the 7th highest.

Funny how we don't have enough money to pay our bills and the only answer is for us to pay more in taxes, when our public servants are getting fat on our sweat!

Seems to me I read this on here already. Maybe in the political discussion area?

The whole situation pisses me off. Now they are going to add a service tax (or if they manage to repeal that, higher income taxes). How the hell can anyone afford to live or run a business here?

As a teacher I can honestly say that I bust my ass putting in more hours in nine months than some do in twelve.

People that bash on how much money teachers make have no clue how much time and energy goes into it.

good for you, I just copied and pasted the email I received, figured someone else probably received it also. just figured I would share, didn't see it posted before, then again don't really check out the gov section too much.
