House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Tuesday issued the following statement:
“Whether wildly wasting tax dollars or angling to axe relief for the people of Michigan, Gov. Whitmer refuses to stand with the hardworking taxpayers in our state. As she signed a secret spending plan worth more than a billion dollars of taxpayer money, the governor still wouldn’t commit to protect the automatic income tax cut that every Michigander should receive this year. Instead, Gov. Whitmer is plotting to pour money into a shady, unaccountable slush fund for large corporations and play accounting shell games to block income tax relief. The state government is growing like never before, and relief will make life more affordable for the people of Michigan. It would be completely disgraceful for the governor to raise taxes on everyday Michiganders and small businesses just so she can dole out cash to big businesses.”
“Gov. Whitmer’s heavily-skewed, partisan commission is nothing but a Trojan horse for new taxes,” Hall said. “After four years of failure, the governor has no plan to keep young people in Michigan, no excuse for our crumbling roads, and no vision to improve childhood reading levels.”
“Michiganders want public safety in our communities, but House Democrats are pushing radical, unprecedented plans to let dangerous criminals roam our neighborhoods,” said Hall, R-Richland Township. “The Democrats’ newest, extreme proposal could release the most brutal murderers and rapists from prison and inject them back into our communities.”
“House Democrats’ wasteful spending ignores the priorities of the people of Michigan, shoveling taxpayer dollars to unsustainable new programs, pork, and partisan pet projects instead of investing critical resources into education, infrastructure, and local law enforcement,” Hall said.
