Dick DeVoss is running for Governor of Michigan against Jennifer Granholm, and is active in the campaign to eliminate Michigan’s Single Business Tax. (Granholm agrees with eliminating the tax, but is a stickler for one little detail. She insists that before it is eliminated there is a plan to make up for the lost revenue.)
DeVos’s ultimate goal is that everyone in the state has their own business (free of the single business tax, of course). No need for pesky workers–they can all be outsourced. Dick DeVoss knows about out-sourcing workers.
The business DeVos would have everyone own would be to sell other businesses to people below you, and then you get a percentage of their business as they get others to start a business. You can also buy all your household items from the top business. DeVos would claim everyone will get wealthy this way. He knows–look at how much money he has made from this business model. DeVos has become wealthy by ripping off people with Amway, the nation’s top legal pyramid scheme.
DeVos will take Bush’s ownership society to a new level–all free of the single business tax.
