If the only reason the film industry is willing to come to Michigan is tax payer dollars, then let them find another state to do business in. Michigan needs companies to invest in this state.
One of the best incentives to make that happen is to reduce the taxes charged to businesses and the other is to make sure government stays out of the way so that the business can grow.
Michigan legislators have destroyed the auto industry in this state by continuously adding additional taxes on these businesses and the federal government, not wanting to miss out on that money, did its part by adding mandates, standards and laws intended to “protect” the people from accidents caused by these vehicles. Don’t let them fool you into thinking they cared about the American people; they won’t write a bill unless there is money to be made somewhere.
Government greed has destroyed just about every business in this country. Look at oil, coal, and nuclear. They are literally millions of jobs sitting idle because apparently they cannot find a way to milk these businesses for any more money.
And look at what they did for Social Security. We had billions in reserves back during the Johnson administration when they decided they could count is as part of the budget and use the money for “investing” which we all know is the code word for spending. It is now on the brink of insolvency and we can thank the geniuses in DC that think they know better how to spend our money.
Government has grown too large and they are causing undue financial hardship on the American people not because of inactivity but because of inept, corrupt politicians in search of their slice of the pie, problem is their slice now consumes the slice of those that paid for the pie.
