So, now that you're saying what would happen with these scenarios, can you give us any advice about what to do?
Advice?  Take a moment to be serious.  What do you think should be done to drop unemployment?

My entire reason for entering this thread was to ask about where the money was coming from.  Do you guys have a surplus or will taxes have to be raised or programs cut to fund that bill?  Does the Midwest even have a budget?


Woah. Now hold on lil doggie. We don't play that way here in th MW.

Let's sell Montana to Canada.

The solution is simple, pass a bill that prohibits Atlasian Government officials from setting foot in the Midwest. Yelnoc will not be able to complete his unemployment report, and the Midwestern people will be content with bread and circuses. May that cause a civil war? Possibly, but who knows, that may be cool.

What was your previous tax structure?

The midwest has flat taxes?  So much for progressivism Tongue

Midwest Revenue
Personal Income Tax 6%
Business Income Tax 12%

So great, now the region will collect more revenue.  That's also more money coming out of mid-westerners' pockets.  And this is to pay for the $120,000,000 in handouts?  You might want to look into how much money those taxes will actually raise and what obligations need to be paid.

As of now, I don't see any real reason for Midwest unemployment to decrease.

We Hates Furigners Act

If any foreigner (non Midwest citizen) is found in the government buildings, meaning the Midwest Universal Alțing, and it's Proposal Introducing Thread, a government subsidized angry mob will string him up at the nearest bonzi tree.

Damn furingers!

The 'This is the Midwest' Act

Reality should stay out of the Midwest. It does not belong here. Go scare them foreigners.


I have zero knowledge of MW legislative procedure, but can't we attach this as an amendment to the WHF Act?

Midwest Revenue
Upper Personal Income Tax (over $300,000): 14%
Lower Personal Income Tax (under $300,000): 6%
Business Income Tax: 12%

That's fine and dandy but it doesn't really answer anything.

Nonono, don't sign that.  That is much to violent of a removal method for the Midwest.  We have the Broom of Justice(tm).
