When was the last time a tax increase made our state, or our nation, more fiscally responsible? The obvious answer is never. The more money the government receives, the more inefficient the government becomes.
Michigan voters will soon face a ballot choice. Yes or no on the proposed 1 percent increase in the Michigan sales tax.
It is being said that this increase is needed to pay for road repairs. Do we say yes and feed the voracious appetite and inefficient workings of the bureaucracy? Or do we say no to Lansing, thereby charging our state government to find the money needed for road repairs from its bureaucratic inefficiencies?
