WASHINGTON – Michigan members of Congress and Senate got an unexpected present from representatives of Michigan credit unions who were in town June 10 for a Hike the Hill visit. Seventeen giant stuffed ducks were personally delivered to each of the state’s 15 congressman and two senators, along with a specially-designed card signed by credit union reps, to make the point that as the card stated, “This may look like a duck.But this ain’t no duck!.” By delivering the ducks, the Michigan Credit Union League deliberately attacked the bankers’ “If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck” rhetoric in their push to have CUs’ tax exemption repealed. -
