For the second time in two years a group of Michigan activists is launching a recall drive against Gov. Rick Snyder (R).
With a reworded recall petition focused on actions Snyder has taken rather than actions Snyder is projected to take, the group Michigan Rising believes they can double the amount of signatures they received last year and force a recall referendum in November. The group is focusing the bulk of its attention on Snyder's decision to sign "emergency manager" legislation allowing the state to take control of local governments and his budget plans.
"Things have gotten worse," Michigan Rising spokesman Bruce Fealk told The Huffington Post.
The language submitted to Washtenaw County election officials specifically cites Snyder's education, tax and local government policies. The petition claims that Snyder has hurt school children by taking $400 million out of the state school fund, which caused students to be placed in over crowded classrooms, and notes his cutting of the state's food stamp program. It also says that Snyder has ousted elected officials with the emergency manager law and raised taxes on the poor and middle class, while cutting taxes on the wealthy and corporations.
"He is robbing from the poor to pay the rich," Fealk said. "It is Robin Hood in reverse."
