Gretchen Whitmer Pure Partisan

Gretchen Whitmer: Pure Partisan LANSING, Mich., October 1, 2019 – Today the Michigan Republican Party lunched a new web video “Pure Partisan” in response to Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s reckless use of her line item veto power. Amongst the 147 items vetoed by the Governor was an additional $375 million specifically targeted for road and bridge repairs. In addition, Whitmer made cuts to funding to Public Charter Schools, Rural Hospitals, Prisons, Law Enforcement, and funding for Children with disabilities amongst many other cuts.  “In a desperate attempt to get Republicans to submit to her highest in the nation 45-cent gas tax increase, Governor Whitmer is slashing funding for many of Michigan’s most vulnerable residents. Children, veterans, and the disabled should never be used as political pawns. In an effort spread the word about Governor Whitmer’s reckless abuse of the budget process, the Michigan Republican Party is happy to announce our new web video calling out Whitmer for what she truly is; A Pure Partisan. “Pure Partisan” can be found here More >

Whitmer Cuts Funding for the “Damn Roads”   LANSING, Mich., September 30, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Governor Whitmer’s $375 million in road funding cuts from the 2019-20 state budget. In addition, Whitmer used her line-item veto power to cut 147 items from the budget. It’s even been reported that Whitmer was so zealous with her line-item veto that she accidently cut funding from both the school aid and Health and Human Service budgets, requiring the legislature to fix her mistakes and restore the funding. “Tonight, Governor Whitmer showed that she is willing to use the people of Michigan as pawns in her fight for higher taxes and bigger government. Whitmer governs with such reckless abandon that she needed a ‘do over’ after cutting critical funding for education and health services by mistake.  Gas Tax Gretchen is clearly more interested in raising taxes than fixing a single mile of our state’s crumbling roads, and she’s willing to throw the people of Michigan under the bus to get her way.”   More >
