Event Details

AARP Michigan is hosting a rally in reaction to a State Budget proposal presented by the Governor that calls for over $1 billion in tax increases on retirees, seniors and the working poor, while cutting quality-of-life programs and services by $1.2 billion and giving businesses a $1.8 billion tax cut.  AARP believes this budget is an all out attack on older Michiganders.  We believe what our members are getting in this plan is a much higher tax bill and reduced services.  This plan would raise taxes on 1.1 million seniors in exchange for a business tax cut, while also reducing spending for public schools and universities, police and fire fighters, local road repairs and other vital programs and services.  This is unfair and unacceptable!
