This latest tax hike percolating in the backrooms of the Legislative Chambers in Lansing, House Bills 5477, and 5493 is not about fixing the infrastructure here in the lands of the Wolverine. It is all about expanding the spending spiral another 1.2 billion dollars for the coming fiscal year starting on October 1, 2014.
There is no need to increase fuel taxes one cent.
There is a need to repeal Public Act 231 of 1987 where sits the bureaucratic council that will be the recipient of Our PRIVATE WEALTH extorted under the color of House Bill 5477, and 5493 if we allow the Legislative Body to enact this Progressively inspired legislative plunder under the claim of repairing our highways and byways here in the lands of the Wolverine
This is not about a lack of funding for infrastructure maintenance and expansion here in the lands of the Wolverine.
This is all about shuffling OUR PRIVATE WEALTH extorted under Public Act 119 of 1980, and Public Act 403 of 2000 to shift the increased taxes through offices of the appointed bureaucratic administrators who sit on Transportation Asset Management Council.
The Transportation Asset Management Council sits under the statutory authority of Public Act 51 of 1951 wherein the bureaucratic administrators will then shift OUR PRIVATE WEALTH extorted under the Motor Fuel Carrier Fuel Act, and the Motor Fuel Tax to capitalize the Transportation Economic Development fund, which is the Progressive program best defined as Legislative Plunder.
These increased takings of OUR private wealth are put within the administrative hands of the Transportation Asset Management Council. This Council then hands over funds to capitalize the Transportation Economic Development fund, which is known as Public Act 231 of 1987.
Then there is the little known Public Act 160 of 2010 that was enacted to fund the Michigan Education Association full employment centers, known as “Public Schools”. Public Act 160 of 2010 imposes a Six percent sales tax upon Wholesale Fuel Sales, which is then poured into Foundational Grants to fund benefits, and legacy costs of the labor pool known as “Public Educators”.
The State Legislature should stand up an acknowledge the systemic fiscal fraud, known as Legislative Plunder, dating from 1987, by repealing Public Act 231 of 1987 and Public Act 160 of 2010. This would leave 100 percent of the current usurious 19 cents per gallons takings to fund highways and byways infrastructural maintenance and expansions here in the lands of the Wolverine.
No, that would be an admission to 63 years of legislative plundering of OUR private wealth under the color of law, something the Progressives NEVER WILL DO!
The current House Bills 5477 and 5493 as amendment by the Senate Chamber potentially increases the legislative plundering of our Private Wealth to fund the Progressive Leadership that dominates both House Chambers sitting under OUR State Capitol Dome Favorite charities, known as Pork Barrel Projects for their Special Interests.
The Pork Barrel Projects are enabled within the statutorily enacted Public Act 231 of 1987. The Progressive appointed apparatchiks that sit on the Transportation Asset Management Counsel have been mismanaging our Private Wealth to fund “Public Transportation”, “Public Education” (Benefits, and legacy costs) and to directly subsidize corporations by providing funds for “economic development”.
Meanwhile since its inception in 1981, the Transportation Asset Management Counsel has mismanaged the maintenance and expansion of our Highway and byway infrastructure herein the lands of the Wolverine.
The best example of the Progressively funded mismanagement has been self evident these past six years as we have noticed an ever increasing number of Highway Bridges being rebuilt, yet no one in the Michigan Department of Transportation speaks up as to why! Why did those bridges fall apart in less than twenty-five years? Could it be the low cost bid Union labor intensive contract led to the utilization of inferior road building materials, such as “cement” by the contractors in the 1980’s?
This exposes the real facts behind this clamor of emergency road repairs, which is the political practiced sleight of hand being moved by the Progressive dominated leadership sitting under our State Capitol Dome in Lansing this very day.
The tax legislation moving currently as House Bills 5477, and 5493, has one political objective, the expansion of governmental spending to fund a political battle to protect the usual suspects who face challenges in this 2014 electoral season.
The fiscal facts that are ignored by the Political Leadership sitting under Our State Capitol Dome, which are best defined as inconvenient facts, is that there sits this very day, and has sat since the enactment of Public Act 51 of 1951 more than enough fiscal funds to annually maintain and expand the highway and byway infrastructure here in the lands of the Wolverine for the past 63 years.
Our highways and byways sit in the current negligent state due directly to the same political polices that turned Motown into a Ghost Town. This Progressive Political policy is known as legislative plunder.
Legislative plunder is reliant upon ALL Michiganders to be knowingly misinformed by the very officers of the Public Trust we elected to sit under OUR Capitol dome in Lansing.
The Speaker of the House and the Senate Floor Majority Leader knowingly choreograph this political charade by organizing the needed votes from both sides of the political aisle to enact the ever expanding takings of OUR Private Wealth to fund their Progressive dreams of Legislative Plunder.
Then on the evening news channel the talking heads come out and champion how all these newly plundered dollars exacted from OUR Private Wealth will fill the pot holes.
