Republican Floor Leader Bryan Posthumus, Assistant Republican Leader Andrew Beeler, and Assistant Republican Floor Leader Andrew Fink, who was denied the opportunity to speak, on Thursday issued the following statement after Democrats denied Republicans the chance to speak against House Bill 4001, which would block an automatic income tax cut for Michiganders and small businesses:
“The Democratic majority is doing whatever they can to pass a tax hike onto families and small businesses throughout Michigan. This bill was written in secret, efforts were made behind the scenes to strong-arm members, and Republicans weren’t allowed to stand up for Michigan taxpayers and speak against this — violating our right to debate. Democrats did all of this to prevent a permanent income tax rollback that would help make life more affordable for all Michiganders. This is exactly why people across our state don’t trust what is going on in Lansing. Even one House Democrat called this ‘political suicide’ — and that’s exactly what this secret tax hike is.”
State Rep. Andrew Beeler, the assistant House Republican leader, on Thursday criticized new Democratic legislation to give union bosses more leverage over workers, fund union dues with tax credits, and allow unions to skirt campaign finance limits.
State Rep. Andrew Beeler on Wednesday criticized Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration for adding $750 million in taxpayer funding to a previously announced plan to pay to help Ford Motor Co. establish a new electric vehicle battery plant in Marshall.
