No "Shared Sacrifice"


We can’t afford Governor Snyder’s $2 billion tax cut to special interests like CEOs, big corporations, insurance companies, and big banks, all while asking our seniors, children, middle-class families and low-wage workers to pick up the tab.

We need to stand up and tell Governor Snyder that devastating cuts to public education, eliminating the earned income tax credit (EITC), and sharply raising taxes on our seniors is no way to “re-invent” Michigan. It’s not “shared sacrifice” and it’s no way to create jobs in Michigan.

The majority of Michiganders believe that Gov. Snyder’s budget priorities are wrong and Michigan Democrats agree.

According to a new EPIC-MRA poll, 62% oppose cutting K-12 funding. We can’t compete in a global economy if we don’t have an educated workforce. We need to be investing in our children, not taking money out of the classroom.

Nearly 60% oppose eliminating the EITC – a tax credit that helps many workers in Michigan stay above the poverty line.

Help us fight Gov. Snyder’s budget proposal. Sign our online petition and tell the Governor that we won’t stand for a $2 billion tax cut for special interests while our seniors, children, middle-class families, and low-wage workers suffer.

Sign the petition and tell Gov. Snyder we demand to see “shared sacrifice” and make sure no one is left behind like he’s been promising for nearly two years since he began his campaign.

Michigan can’t afford this budget. It’s time we tell the Governor we won’t stand by and cut public education. We won’t eliminate the EITC. We won’t let him force Michigan’s seniors, kids, and workers to pay for a $2 billion special interest tax cut.

Sign the petition today and join the fight.

Governor Snyder,

Devastating cuts to public education, eliminating the earned income tax credit (EITC), and sharply raising taxes on our seniors is no way to “re-invent” Michigan. It’s not “shared sacrifice” and it’s no way to create jobs in Michigan.

Michigan can’t afford this budget. We won’t stand by and let you cut public education. We won’t let you eliminate the EITC. We won’t let you force Michigan’s seniors, kids, and workers to pay for your $2 billion special interest tax cut.

We demand to see “shared sacrifice” and for you to make sure no one is left behind like you’ve been promising for nearly two years since you began your campaign.
