Anyone else see where Mike Ilitch, one of Forbes 400 Richest Americans (top ten in Michigan) is against the luxury tax/entertainment tax Gov. Granholm's pushing?
Apparently he's behind a very agressive PR campaign to block it.

Doesn't he understand that without new taxes, you can't have "taxpayer subsidies?" What would Mike Ilitch do if taxpayer subsidies dried up?

Bill Davidson, Minor League Baseball, Live Nation Ticketmaster are all against this proposed tax on tickets. Illich just is getting the most press because he had the Comerica Park people pass out flyers against the tax.

Does anyone need to to ask, really? His entertainment empire will be directly affected by the proposal to add taxes to certain services and entertainment.
