I’m still waiting to hear Carly Fiorina's three page tax plan

Both the Republican Party Leadership and the Democrat Party Leadership have one thing in common when it comes to tax reform. They both want to keep alive the socialist and failed experiment of allowing Congress to lay and collect taxes calculated from profits, gains, salaries, wages, tips, and other lawfully earned incomes. Of course, I’m sure a thinking person such as Carly Fiorina knows that our Congress critters love this particular tax because it not only allows our Washington…See More

johnwk replied to johnwk's discussion Huckabee is still lying about the “fairtax”.
"Helen, You are correct about it really being a 30% tax.  The reason why I do not raise that issue are twofold: the first is, as you have demonstrated, someone else usually points out it really is a 30% tax; and my second reason is, I can…"

Here are a few resources for MI residents that I thought might be of interest:

1) You can find out if someone has given any money to a politician, a candidate or PAC by going to this link and the "Search by Contributions Analysis" link - you can search by last name at the bottom (that can tell you something about a political persuasion of a person); by zip codes (to find people who may agree - or disagree with you in your area) by putting just zip codes in; find out who has given to a candidate, by putting the candidate committee number in, etc.  you can also download the lists by checking off the "spreadsheet format"


2) You can find out who owns MI companies and other organizations here:


3) You can find out who has contracts with the state of MI here (and can download in excel):


4) You can find any bill in the legislature here, along with links to the State House and Senate websites to find out info on legislators and committees here - as well as links through those websites to live streaming of committee meetings:


Feel free to ask questions about how to use these links in the "comments" section, and I'll try to answer them.
