As we pay more for gasoline, energy and other items that continue to rise with inflation, we are not receiving additional revenue from the state.”

ForTheRecord says: However, that doesn’t jibe with what the Michigan Department of Education is reporting.

In 2010-11, there was $79.8 million in state funding for the school district for 12,034 students. In 2013-14, the state funding increased to $81.6 million even though there were fewer students in the district (11,318 students).

A “bottlenecker” is someone who uses the power of the government to limit competition in the market and artificially boost their own profits. Bottleneckers use a variety of methods to achieve their goals, including tax loopholes, regulations, occupational licensing requirements, minimum wage laws and many more. The end result when these special interest bottleneckers succeed is fewer choices and higher prices for consumers, fewer job opportunities for workers and less innovation throughout the economy.
