Great news! Governor Snyder has decided that Michigan residents should no longer be forced to pay money to an organization that doesn’t represent their views or best interests.
I can only assume that given the current “pro choice” fervor in Michigan that the governor will give all Michigan businesses the choice of participating in what is currently a “forced tax” system. After all, this would give Michigan businesses “the freedom to choose” whether their resources go to the state or not. And as Governor Snyder himself said, this would give him and the state of Michigan “an opportunity to better present their value case.”
Why should union workers be the only ones to benefit from the governor’s generosity?
Just imagine how many businesses would flock to Michigan if they could reap all of the benefits the state of Michigan provides without having to pay those pesky dues … er, taxes.
Of course it would be totally unfair to exclude the Michigan taxpayer from this same choice. Being forced to pay the Michigan Legislature simply because you have a job in Michigan just isn’t right. What if you don’t think the governor has your best interests in mind? Why should there be a mandate that you contribute money to an organization that might use your money on political activities you deem detrimental to your way of life?
As Governor Snyder also said, “This is one of those issues that it’s important to move forward with because it’s all about being” pro-government. After all, why should the governor be restricted from the opportunity to present his value case to the people?
Listen, the governor is already bending over backwards by giving this early Christmas gift to unions, so the least we can do here is let the governor know that we support his efforts and we are willing to do our part and make all of Michigan a “right to work” state.
Thank you governor! :)
