May 5th Ballot Proposal Approaching

by ron.ptaszek on April 25, 2015

The Macomb County Republican Party does NOT support Proposal 15-1 (Prop 1) and we encourage all voters to get out to their precincts on May 5th to deliver a resounding defeat to this massive tax increase.

Here is a copy of our own, unanimously passed resolution. The 9th and 10th Congressional Committees have also taken stances against the measure.

Since passing the above resolution against Prop 1, we have seen confirmation of the same sentiment from a very large group of elected Michigan Republicans and Republican groups as well as TEA Party and other grassroots organizations.

Please read the attached resolution for more details on the MCRP position. Here is a printable piece provided by Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan.

Here are some Prop 1 Highlights

  • Majority of funds do not go to roads
  • Estimated $500-$800 more in taxes per year per family of 4
  • 17% Sales Tax Increase $1.34 Billion
  • Gas Tax Increase $448 Million
  • Vehicle registration fee increase $95 Million
  • Collect tax on internet sales
  • Taxpayers who Itemize will lose deductions

Here is a great youtube video that goes into great detail on the measure, followed by several additional links to reports on the same.
