    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 6/23/2016 | Derek Draplin
    A vacant lot owned by a Jackson woman was foreclosed by Hillsdale County because she failed to pay a $7 late fee on her property taxes. A Freedom of Information Act request found that Pam Baker, a Jackson resident, owed Hillsdale County $7.70 in interest and late fees for delinquent taxes from 2013 on land she owned near Lake LeAnn in Somerset Township. The 2013 taxes on the property, which she owned since 2000, were due on Feb. 14, 2014. Baker says she paid her taxes two weeks late because she was in a car crash seven days before the...
  • Is the American Tax Revolt Over With?

    It's mid-April, and Karlyn Bowman - the astute public opinion analyst at the American Enterprise Institute - has noticed something significant. Tax Day "comes and goes without a ripple," she recently wrote. There's not much fuss. Discontent with the income tax has ebbed. To buttress the point, Bowman cited intriguing survey data. A recent Gallup Poll found that only 1 percent of Americans rated taxes the nation's top problem. In a Pew poll, respondents ranked "reforming" the tax system 16th out of 24 problems. Indeed, Gallup reports that roughly half of Americans think their income-tax burden is about right. Of...
  • 35 Years after Prop 13, Has It Worked? [Jerry Brown and Christie]

    The American ^ | June 6, 2013 | By Benjamin Zycher
    Often described as the opening shot in the Reagan-era tax revolt, Prop 13 limited California’s property tax rates, but has it yielded greater fiscal discipline? What about tax and expenditure limits in other states? Today is the 35th anniversary of the passage of Proposition 13. The California ballot initiative limited the state’s property tax rates and transferred responsibility for allocating local property tax revenues to the state legislature — but did it yield an increase in fiscal discipline?

    Gov. Chris Gregoire looked at the resounding rejection of tax measures in this state and dropped her head. "I don't have a path forward to be honest with you," Gregoire told KING 5. Voters across all 39 counties in Washington state rejected Initiative 1098, the measure concerning establishing a state income tax.snip The state deficit is at $4.5 billion. Gregoire told KIRO Radio's Ross and Burbank Show that the voters decisions Tuesday night means the state must cut another $220 million in the next two years.snip "I don't think this is taking out a pair of scissors and cutting around...

    Dr. Jerome (Jerry) Corsi is a PhD in Economics from Harvard. Five of his books have been on the top 10 list of the New York Times … including “ObamaNation” and “America for Sale.” Jerry gave me some coaching with my book, “Save America Now,” as it was being written. He shared these thoughts with me the other day. The USA is not in a recession or a depression. The USA is suffering from a massive redistribution of wealth on a global scale that is being orchestrated by the New World Order and executed in the USA by Barack Hussein...

    Nearly everyone understands that his taxes just went up. President Obama won't admit it, although he must suffer from a guilty conscience. He uncorked a defensive 17-minute-long answer in response to a question at a town-hall meeting about new taxes in the health-care bill, complaining about a lot of misinformation" without citing any. In his cascade of words, Obama didn't get around to mentioning the $500 billion in new taxes during the first 10 years of the health bill. And they're merely a prelude. It doesn't take an economist to understand what public debt at Greece-like levels of 90 percent...

    The Online Tax Revolt is easy. While sitting at home, I'm marching with Joe the Plumber. You can see the march online [link coming up]. I heard Neil Boortz talking about this last Friday. It's compelling. You get to choose one of many leaders. Some are choosing Reagan. Others choose Boortz. You just give your name, zip, and email. I've been assured that the email remains anonymous. [Some people use their freep names, etc.] This is a revolution in activism. DC can lie about their emails, their calls, their letters -- they can even lie about how large a physical...
  • Dems Run Out of Town: Tax rage ignites a voter revolt in W'chester hamlet

    LEWISBORO, NY -- The voters' revolt against high taxes and a deep recession was so intense that even community leaders of New York's sleepiest hamlets got tossed. Nowhere was this more evident than in the tiny town of Lewisboro -- a northern Westchester municipality of 12,000 near the Connecticut border. Mirroring the upheavals in higher-profile races, like the defeat of New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, cranky voters in Lewisboro threw out their own Democratic leaders.

  • Los Angeles City Council $180K a year plus EIGHT Cars

    LA Weekly ^ | 5/27/2009
    Not only does the City Council rake in nearly $180,000 a year, but they use taxpayer money for eight free cars per council member, and each of them employs a huge personal staff of 19 to 25 people. That's about 320 employees, costing Angelenos millions of dollars to support. Compare that figure to the White House Office Staff of 480. Yesterday, as City Hall squabbled over its groaning $530 million budget deficit, the City Council came under attack in the Daily News from Antonio Villaraigosa's spokesman Matt Szabo, who accused the 15 council members, even at a time like this,...

    Had enough yet? Rick Reiss Friday, May 22nd, 2009. Big government proponents frequently remind us that taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society. This line is actually attributed to the former Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. While true in some respects, our current tax system is anything but civilized. America now has a government riding roughshod over people and businesses with even higher taxes and more rules and regulations. It is only fitting to remember a quotation by another famous American jurist. “That the power to tax…” wrote US Supreme Court Justice John Marshall “involves the...

    NEW ORLEANS - The fate of the University of New Orleans athletic program now rests with the State Legislature after a measure to increase fees to keep the program alive was defeated by a student vote. The vote, over whether or not to increase the students’ athletic fee by about $100 per semester was defeated by a margin of 53 to 47 percent, the University said Friday. The school said that the results of the student vote mean that the University of New Orleans will not ask the LSU Board of Supervisors to increase the student fee. “The only hope...

    Anchorage fitness instructor Amy Brun doesn't want to see any more trillion-dollar federal bailouts. She doesn't want to pay higher taxes, and she doesn't want what she does pay to bankroll some corporate CEO's bonus. "For the first time in my life, I want to know what they're going to do with my money -- because there's a lot of it going out and not a lot of it coming in," Brun said. So on Wednesday, the 45-year-old went to her first-ever protest as part of a national Tax Day Tea Party in downtown Anchorage. More than 1,200 other tax...

    How the tea parties could change American politics. Today American taxpayers in more than 300 locations in all 50 states will hold rallies -- dubbed "tea parties" -- to protest higher taxes and out-of-control government spending. There is no political party behind these rallies, no grand right-wing conspiracy, not even a 501(c) group like So who's behind the Tax Day tea parties? Ordinary folks who are using the power of the Internet to organize. For a number of years, techno-geeks have been organizing "flash crowds" -- groups of people, coordinated by text or cellphone, who converge on a particular...
