LAWMAKERS WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY ON CORPORATE WELFARE
While some lawmakers in Lansing try to resurrect a wasteful corporate welfare program, recent studies show that businesses that receive these taxpayer-funded handouts don’t deliver results.
“The only thing corporate welfare schemes like Senate Bill 615 deliver are fancy dinners and special business meetings between politicians and the high-powered lobbyists ponying up to the taxpayer trough.“Maybe this time, lawmakers can surprise us. The next time politicians take a ceremonial spade to the ground somewhere in Michigan, they can dig a hole six feet deep and bury corporate welfare once and for all.”
GOVERNOR WHITMER LET BENTON HARBOR DRINK LEAD WATER FOR YEARS
