Bidenomics Bad For America

Joe Biden’s economic plan would spell ruin for American jobs and significantly cut household incomes.   LANSING, Mich., October 28, 2020 – After overseeing the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression, Joe Biden once again wants to saddle America with failed economic policies that would cripple our nation’s recovery.   Joe Biden’s economic plan would spell ruin for American jobs and significantly cut household incomes. According to The Wall Street Journal, Joe Biden’s economic plan “will have a damaging impact on growth, job creation, and household income” and that, if fully implemented, “there would be 4.9 million fewer working Americans, $2.6 trillion less in GDP, and $6,500 less in median household income.”. “Joe Biden’s record on the economy over his 47 years in government has been abysmal. From leading the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression to his support of the disastrous NAFTA trade deal, the verdict is out, Bidenomics is bad for America.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “President Trump has led one of the greatest economic expansions in our nation’s history. With record-low unemployment and increased household incomes, it would be a mistake to go back to the failed policies of Joe Biden.” More >

AOC: Gary Peters is Essential To Green New Deal Plans That Will Damage The Auto Industry

Progressives are fighting to save Peters’ Senate seat so they can implement the Green New Deal   LANSING, Mich., October 27, 2020 – Michigan needs a U.S. Senator who will stand up for Michigan’s auto industry, not play a key role in implementing the Green New Deal, Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox said today.   “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exposed that progressives are fighting to save Gary Peters so he can help them force the Green New Deal down the auto industry’s throat, killing jobs and damaging Michigan’s economy,” said Cox. “Peters has quietly solicited progressive support and they are now loudly putting Michigan voters on notice that they will be using his vote in the Senate to pass radical plans like the Green New Deal.”   On CNN last weekend, Ocasio-Cortez said that reelecting Gary Peters is key to a “once in a generation” chance for progressives to run wild with policies that will hurt Michigan’s economy and family checkbooks.   With Peters on board, Ocasio-Cortez said, progressives will make “leaps in policy” on plans such as the Green New Deal, creating “a memorable shift from just a flatline of this idea of bipartisanship.”   Peters has already shown a proclivity toward seeking progressive support, despite his bipartisan rhetoric on the campaign trail:   Green New Deal: Peters refused to cast a vote against the Green New Deal when he had the chance last year, instead he weakly voted “present”.   Medicare For All: Behind closed doors, Peters told progressive...

Biden's Healthcare Plan is Unhealthy For America

Biden’s healthcare plan could destroy private health insurance, leaving millions of Americans with high cost and low-quality care   LANSING, Mich., October 27, 2020 – As socialized healthcare systems have been crippled around the world under the COVID-19 virus, Joe Biden continues to push for his radical healthcare plan that would bring those same failed systems to America.   Biden’s healthcare plan could destroy private health insurance, leaving millions of Americans with high cost and low-quality care. According to Fox News, “a public option would increase the federal deficit by a staggering $800 billion over 10 years. Covering that tab will require massive tax hikes — including on the middle class”, and moreover “Slowly but surely, private health insurance companies would leave the market, unable to compete.”.   “Joe Biden’s public option would bring socialized medicine to America and would spell disaster for Americans everywhere.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “Biden lied to the American people in 2009 when he said ‘if you like your insurance and doctor, you can keep it’. The reality of his new healthcare plan is ‘if you like private health insurance, kiss it goodbye.’” More >

Cox Statement on Gary Peters Opposing Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation

LANSING, Mich., October 27, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding U.S. Senator Gary Peters’ vote against the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett:   “Gary Peters made yet another partisan vote in a Senate career defined by voting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer 95% of the time, despite the fact that Michigan families sent him there to stand up for them. Worse yet, Peters chose to play politics instead of supporting an incredibly well-qualified woman for the United States Supreme Court. The only thing Peters confirmed tonight was his commitment to a radical progressive policy agenda that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unmasked when she said Peters is the key to “a memorable shift from just a flatline of this idea of bipartisanship”. More >

Cox Statement On Confirmation Of Judge Amy Coney Barrett

LANSING, Mich., October 26, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding the Senate confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court.   “President Trump promised Americans that he would appoint rule of law justices to the Supreme Court, who would protect and defend our constitution. Tonight’s confirmation of his nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is a fulfillment of this promise. Justice Barrett will bring dignity and esteem to the Supreme Court with her originalist approach, and Americans can be proud to know that they have yet another justice defending their rights and the Constitution of the United States.” More >

ICYMI: AOC Promises That Gary Peters Will Create A “Memorable Shift” To Progressive Policies

Ocasio Cortez exposes Peters’ campaign claims of bi-partisanship as a joke that will be ignored if Democrats take full-control of the U.S. Capitol   LANSING, Mich., October 26, 2020 – Gary Peters’ Senate seat must be saved to ensure a “memorable shift” to progressive polices, despite the fact he has been attempting to campaign as a moderate, bi-partisan candidate, according to progressive leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez    On CNN over the weekend, Ocasio Cortez said that reelecting Gary Peters is key to a “once in a generation” chance for progressives to run wild with policies that will hurt Michigan’s economy and family checkbooks.   That is in stark contrast with what Peters says on the trail about bipartisanship. But Peters has given many hints about his readiness to follow Ocasio Cortez’s progressive plans for Congress:   Green New Deal: Peters refused to cast a vote against the Green New Deal when he had the chance last year, instead he weakly voted “present”.   Medicare For All: Behind closed doors, Peters told progressive activists that “The path forward is where you're going to have a ‘Medicare for All’ down the road, that's probably where we're going to go…”   Votes lock-step with liberal leadership: Peters votes along with super-liberal Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer 95% of the time.       “Gary Peters tries to wear the mantle of bipartisanship but he quietly courts the radical progressive agenda that will cost Michigan families their money and jobs,” said Michigan Republican Party...

Biden Teases SCOTUS Scheme

Joe Biden continues to leave the door open for a radical court-packing plan   LANSING, Mich., October 26, 2020 – Once considered a radical taboo, Joe Biden continues to leave the door open to a liberal takeover of the United States Supreme Court by adding seats. Despite the Supreme Court being fixed at nine justices for over 150 years, Democrats want to add seats onto the Supreme Court and fill them with left wing justices, destabilizing our justice system. This is a power play that Biden has not ruled out.   In fact, Biden has actually signaled his support for the idea, saying, “it depends how it turns out” with the Barrett nomination, and late last week, he announced his plan to form a commission that would “go well beyond [court] packing.”   “For 150 years, nine has been the magic number on our Supreme Court. While that number was good enough for every President from Grant to Trump, the fact that Biden has made it clear it’s not good enough for him is telling,” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “The simple fact is the Democrats have not gotten their way under the rules, and now they want to change the rules. This is yet another reason why we must reelect President Trump next Tuesday.” More >
