Dear Michigan Capitol Confidential

-----Original Message-----
From: Shannon [last name redacted] [mailto:XXXXX@yahoo.com]

I received your spring issue, read it cover to cover and have come to the conclusion that you are nothing more than corporate shills hiding behind your "educational institute" tax exempt status.  Added to my agenda of things to do: eliminate the ability of corporate lobby organizations to collect funds from our corporate masters and then pass their anti-worker, anti-human being agendas off on taxpayers as newsworthy information.

Please, do the citizens of Michigan really need to know how much money Farmington Hills Schools spent on hardware supplies?  Why not report on something that really matters to Michigan citizens.  How many jobs have Michigan based companies shipped to cheap labor countries over the last ten years?  Right-to-Work Laws?  You must be joking. Michigan corporations aren't afraid of unions -  they're afraid of having to share a reasonable portion of their profits with the workers that actually make the profits. Children in China work for so much less than a U.S. adult trying to support a family.

Your "newspaper" is a disgrace and does a terrible disservice to the citizens of Michigan.

Why we give Party Affiliations:
The Legislature is managed as a partisan institution. Lawmakers segregate themselves by party in matters from daily meetings to seating. They have separate and taxpayer-financed policy staffs to provide them with research and advice from differing perspectives. As such, gaining a full understanding of the vote of an individual lawmaker requires knowing his or her partisan affiliation.

Many people believe public schools need more money until they hear how much the schools spend each year per pupil.
