Phil DiMaria http://michiganradio.org en Shortchanging the Future http://michiganradio.org/post/shortchanging-future <p>Macomb County Commissioner Phil DiMaria is angry about Gov. Rick Snyder&rsquo;s proposal to tax pension income, and he&rsquo;s doing something about it. He&rsquo;s launched a statewide petition drive to oppose the tax, which is key to the governor&rsquo;s proposed budget.</p><p>DiMaria, who has been on the county commission for twenty years, thinks the governor is badly out of touch. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s rich. He&rsquo;s never going to be an old person who has to pinch pennies to try and get by, try and buy milk and bread,&rdquo; he told me yesterday.</p> Mon, 21 Mar 2011 18:26:20 +0000 Jack Lessenberry 1731 at http://michiganradio.org Shortchanging the Future
