Stevens Tone Deaf to Democratic SocialismStevens Calls Ocasio-Cortez “Dynamic Rock Star” LANSING, Mich., March 21, 2019 –  In a recent Time Magazine article, Michigan Democrat Congresswoman Haley Stevens expresses her praise for fellow freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling her a “dynamic rock star”. This praise comes despite the fact that Ocasio-Cortez’s signature policy goal, the $93 trillion Green New Deal, would destroy Michigan’s economy by decimating the states manufacturing and agricultural industries.  In addition to its job-killing regulations, the Green New Deal would also strip away American’s right to choose their own health care. In Stevens district alone, 85% of constituents would lose their healthcare coverage, having it replaced with a government-run healthcare bureaucracy.   Ocasio-Cortez has also received criticism for sending a fundraising appeal that said that pro-Israeli group AIPAC was, “coming for her”, after fellow Democrat Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib faced their own anti-Semitic scandals. Despite these type of incidents, Stevens said Ocasio-Cortez was simply, “Getting a lot of attention” and “Why is that a bad thing?” “If Haley Steven’s thinks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a ‘rock star’, she must be tone deaf.”  said Laura Cox Michigan Republican Party Chairman “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a democratic-socialist whose radical agenda would destroy our economy and healthcare system. Michigan can’t afford Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist vision for our nation, or to have a Congresswoman who refuses to stand up to these extreme elements in her party.”   More >

In Case You Missed it: Gillibrand Joins the Race to the Left In case you missed it, video surfaced yesterday of Kirsten Gillibrand saying that firearms manufacturers, "want to sell an assault rifle to a teenager in a Walmart." Previously, Gillibrand supported 2nd Amendment rights, but apparently that does not fit the Democrat's new ultra-radical agenda. This is just another sad example of how Democrat Presidential candidates will say anything in their race to the left.

Gillibrand and O’Rourke Race to the Radical Left! LANSING, Mich., March 18, 2019 – Today, Democrat Presidential Candidates Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke used their Michigan campaign stops to appeal to the most radical elements of the Democrat party. In a desperate attempt to court progressives and socialists, the candidates each made a laundry list of promises including the public financing of campaigns, government-run healthcare, free college, and the passage of the budget-busting Green New Deal. There was no indication on how either would pay for their plans, but the cost for the Green New Deal alone has been estimated at $93 trillion over ten years or $600,000 per American family.  In an MSNBC town hall in Auburn Hills, Gillibrand reportedly told the audience, “we should be brave enough to fight for Medicare for all. We should be brave enough to fight for a Green New Deal,” despite the fact that the Green New Deal would hit Michigan’s manufacturing and agricultural industries especially hard. O’Rourke has previously said that, “the future of the world” depends on the $93 trillion boondoggle. In line with the Democrats race to the left, video surfaced today of Gillibrand saying that firearms manufacturers, “want to sell an assault rifle to a teenager in a Walmart.” Previously, Gillibrand supported 2nd amendment rights.  “Today, Gillibrand and O’Rourke engaged in a game of progressive one-upmanship, promising money our nation doesn’t have, on government takeovers it doesn’t need.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “If the socialist plans being... More >

Gillibrand will appear with Governor Gretchen Whitmer, while O’Rourke’s will be campaigning in southeastern Michigan. “Today, the Democrat Presidential circus is coming to Michigan and bringing with it two of its biggest clowns.
