Gov. Rick Snyder, State Sen. Jack Brandenburg do not care about ordinary citizens we need to hold them accountable for the attacks on the seniors, middle class and women rights. They claim they do not tax but took away Homestead property tax credit for anyone who's family income is between 50 and 85 thousand dollars a year. They are taxing our pensions, passing anti worker laws that will only help corporate interest passing laws that hurt women rights. They took away funding for our cities and counties without replacing funds that are needed to run them and gave the breaks to the businesses. And now they are proposing to tax your gas and raise your car registration fees. The ordinary citizens need to get rid of these corporate paid politicians in 2014. They promised to create jobs they created none. Their policies are geared to help their rich donors wake up Michigan voters.

Well of course you like that Snyder is shifting our debts off the backs of the corporate overlords and onto the backs of the middle class and poor.

Governor Snyder is punishing seniors by taking away their income tax exemption and trying to raise the auto registration tax and gas tax. Does he want us to walk? I live on social security and can't afford it. Also, my car insurance went up $250 dollars this year thanks to the MCCA for the people who take advantage of having no insurance. Their caregivers milk the system by taking them to casinos and the only person playing is the caregiver on the taxpayers dime. THIS HAS TO STOP.

BJ...great info on the insurance!! We (citizens of MI) need to push our politicians into getting rid of the "no fault" law!! Compare our insurance rates to the states without no fault, there is no comparison!! I feel bad for those who worked hard their whole lives just to end up in this position!!!!
