Senate Roll Call 863 on 2011 House Bill 4003
Again we see our so-called conservative republican leaders falling into a liberal pattern of raising taxes to support a never ending revenue hodgepodge. This mindset continues to drain monies away from earners and place it in the hands of incompetent lazy politicians who remain convinced that they know best. Until we remove all these tax and spend individuals we will never get to keep what we earn.The Senate needs a walk to the wood shed by the angry voters of Michigan. Regarding HB 4003 the message is clear union money stolen from home healthcare workers does not seem to be a priority to most in Lansing, remember who these chair warmers are come election time. For Rick Snyder sitting on the fence regarding RTW is the cowards way out and sends a clear message to all of us that a nerd can be bullied.
It seems to me like SEIU has bought off or threatened enough Republicans to keep this from moving forward. They went ahead and defunded the sham child care agency and stopped the dues grab by the UAW. But the SEIU is still raking in the dough off the providers who care for disable adults -- six million a year and no one is doing anything about it. It's a scam and even the GOP and the MAckinac Center are in on it in Michigan protecting the SEIU.
I really wish the Teaparty would take a good hard look at this!
