Biggest Protest At State Capitol To Come Today

There's been one rally after another at the state capitol-- but the biggest is expected to happen today.
More than 3,000 union workers and voters will protest nearly 40 budget bills.
The AFL-CIO demonstration today will be much like the AARP rally at the capitol on Tuesday, where more than a thousand seniors protested Governor Snyder's plan to tax pensions.
Seniors say they're already having a hard time living on fixed incomes.
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is firing people up for today's march on the capitol.
Moore sent out a letter Tuesday, urging people to take today off to go out and fight for middle class families.
The rally begins at noon.
Last night, a few dozen people staged a peaceful protest inside the state capitol building before police made them leave for the night.

    i deliver for a company in lansing, i deliver to a lot of downtown companys. i was at the corner of mich. and capitol waiting for the light to change. when i seen a sign that said stop the tyranny stop snyder. i thought what a joke, this guy that was holding this sign has no idea what it is to live in a country that has a tyrant as a leader. im thinking try that in the middle east or in china or in some nations in africa you will see what is like to live in tyranny. you wouldnt be holding that sign if anything you,d be in jail or beaten or dead. and to these unions, you dont speak for everyone you had your chance with granholm . and didnt she to a great job, not so suck it up like the rest of mi. has had to do for the past 8 years and stop speading lies .

    protest all you want.We can't even vote on many things.The government are the ones that have said yes or no to things.Now to cover up there mistakes they want to say cut-stop-NO !Rick is a business owner.OK.Like many they would love to get rid of unions so they would have more control over their business.Well the union has got big with many big demands.Some factories have closed because of unions coming in,other had to lay off a big amount of people.Unions couldn't save their jobs.Are unions good or bad for the worker now.They have became big & greedy.

    Teachers only get 2 personal days in GL so unless they have any left, they are unable to go down to the Capitol. I hope many retirees who can, do.
