The American Rescue Plan is ~10% of GDP. The New Deal was only 13%.
Some local officials and municipalities are already planning to use American Rescue Plan money as a property tax giveaway. In other words, a major giveaway to the wealthiest Michiganders, least likely to spend the money to improve our economy. Tell them to stop it! Invest this money in people and communities, and lay the groundwork for a better future!
Contact your representatives - Invest ARPA for Michigan's Future
Tell your legislators not to squander ARPA with giveaways for the wealthiest citizens, and, instead, invest in our infrastructure, our education, and our future.
Corporate Tax Cuts Aren't Free
Corporate Tax Cuts Aren't Free. Less revenue = less funding for our future. Let them know what's at stake. #fundthefuture.
Stop Corporate Tax Cuts
Corporations in Michigan are paying some of the lowest income taxes in the country. And the revenue flowing from the corporate income tax into Michigan communities has been fallen dramatically over the last decade. Now there's a bill going through the Michigan legislature to cut corporate income taxes even more. To build a better Michigan we need to invest in people and communities. We need to improve our infrastructure and our education system. We need clean water and economic opportunity—not rising inequality and disinvestment. Tell your legislators to reject corporate tax cuts and pass bills to #FundTheFuture in Michigan.
