2021 Mackinac Conference Pr... by Michigan Republican Party

Issues To Be Discussed


The purpose of the meeting is to discuss issues facing Michigan Republicans and brainstorm ways to solve them. We will be discussing the following issues:

Organizing More Often Republican Events with Americans

The Republican Party has been incredibly successful at organizing more often than the Republican Party. In the past few years, the Republicans have held events all over the country. They've organized marches, rallies, and even concerts to show their support for their candidates, and it's worked out well for them.

The Democrats haven't done this as much. When they have organized events, they've often been very small gatherings in small towns. This isn't going to help them win elections because people don't know about it unless someone tells them about it—and even then, they probably won't go unless they're already politically active.

Financial Literacy of Michigan Residents

A recent study revealed that residents of Michigan are among the least financially literate in the country. The study, conducted by LendEDU, found that only 4% of adults in Michigan could correctly answer all six financial literacy questions on their survey. The results were based on a random sample of 1,000 adults across the state.

According to the study, Michigan is one of the states with the highest percentage of residents who struggle with basic financial concepts like compound interest and inflation. In fact, only 4% of those surveyed were able to answer all six questions correctly.

In addition to being poorly educated about basic financial concepts, many residents also lack an understanding of credit card debt. Only 20% of those surveyed knew how long it takes to pay off $500 in credit card debt if they make only minimum payments each month.

Minimum Income for MI Consumers

The minimum income for Michigan consumers is $10,000, as of 2018. The United States Department of Commerce has updated the figures on household incomes and spending to reflect changes since 2017. As reported in a news release from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), median household income increased 2.6 percent between 2017 and 2018, reaching $63,100. This is an increase of $1,300 over the previous year's figure—which was $61,700 in 2017—and continues a trend of rising incomes that began in 2016.

According to the BEA's report, this increase in income was driven by gains in employment and wages for workers who are employed full-time or part-time. However, it does not include self-employment income or capital gains from stocks or bonds; that information will be included later in 2019.

Increasing the Maximum Amount of Payday Loans

The maximum amount of payday loans have recently been increased, and this change is going to affect many people. This increase will be applied to all payday loan companies, which means that the maximum amount of money you can borrow will go up.

The new limit is $2,500, which is a lot more than the previous limit of $1,000. The government had hoped that increasing this limit would help more people out with their financial needs, but some experts say it could actually cause more problems for people who are already struggling with debt.

In a recent decision, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) made it clear that there are limits to the number of payday loans that can be extended.

In its official statement, the CFPB said: "Today's action will help ensure that consumers have access to small-dollar credit on fair terms that meet their borrowing needs."

The move comes after a series of complaints from people who were unable to pay back their loans due to exorbitant interest rates and fees.

Improving the Interest Rates of Loan Products

Improving the interest rates of loan products is one of the most important issues in our industry today. The problem is that there are many loans with very high-interest rates, even though they are not necessary. This results in people paying more than they need to and returning less money to their families and communities.

In order to fix this problem, we need to develop better tools for measuring risk and developing new ways to make sure that loans are affordable for all borrowers.
