Cox response to Whitmer Road Tax Hike LANSING, Mich., March 4, 2019 The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox on Governor Whitmer’s proposed 45 cent per gallon gas tax.  “Governor Whitmer promised that she would ‘fix the damn roads’ instead she is proposing a $2 billion tax increase that will break many Michiganders budgets. This comes just 4 years after Michiganders rejected a similar proposal by an 80/20 vote.  The people of Michigan deserve real solutions on this critical issue, not a tax and spend solution which places the burden on the states overtaxed families.”     More >

Radical Rashida Strikes Again LANSING, Mich., February 28, 2019–  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox regarding yesterday’s incident in which Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib broke with long-standing house decorum by insinuating that fellow Congressman Mark Meadows was a racist during public congressional hearings. This is not the first time Tlaib has gotten herself into hot water during her short tenure. On her first day in the House, Tlaib drew criticism for calling the President a “Mother***er” and her support of anti-Semitic groups has stirred controversy regarding her fitness for office. “Yesterday in a blatant attempt to silence a political opponent, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib made baseless accusations of racism against a fellow member of Congress. This shameful and slanderous act is sadly another example of how Congresswoman Tlaib would rather impress democratic socialist radicals with inflammatory rhetoric, rather than get something done for the people of Michigan. It’s time that Rashida Tlaib realize that she is now servant of the people and no longer a professional progressive bomb thrower.”    More >

In Case You Missed It: Peters & Stabenow vote against saving lives of newborns In case you missed it, earlier this week Michigan Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow joined with the most extreme elements of their Democratic party to deny a vote on the "Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act". This bill would have required abortion clinics to provide medical care to infants who are born during the abortion procedure. This recent position from the Democratic party is truly terrifying. The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox on this vital issue. “By voting to kill the ‘Born-Alive Abortions Survivors Protection Act’, Senators Peters and Stabenow have sided with extremists over common sense. This radical position does not represent the values of the people of Michigan in the U.S. Senate and I will work to elect a Senator in 2020 who will.” More >

4.5 Billion More Reasons to Oppose Dems Green New DealFiat-Chrysler Announces Major Investment in Michigan Manufacturing LANSING, Mich., February 28, 2019–  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox regarding Fiat-Chrysler’s announcement that the company will be investing $4.5 billion in manufacturing within Michigan. It is estimated that this investment will lead to 6,500 new jobs within the state.  “Fiat Chrysler’s announcement that they will be investing $4.5 billion in Michigan is proof that under President Trump’s leadership American manufacturing is back. Thanks to the President’s economic vision 6,500 Michiganders will soon be working again, building full-size SUVs and electric hybrids that will move our state and nation forward. However, if Democrats get their way many of these new jobs will not exist.  Under the Democrats “Green New Deal” the production of nearly all these vehicles would be eliminated. Clearly, this announcement provides 4.5 billion more reasons why Michiganders should oppose the Democrats extremist agenda. While the coastal elites and environmental extremists who run the Democrat Party continue to be focused on destroying our economy, President Trump and Republicans are fighting to create high paying manufacturing jobs here in Michigan and across our nation.  We are proud that Fiat-Chrysler shares our vision to make American manufacturing great again.”  More >

The Big Green StealDemocrat Plan Could Cost Taxpayers $93 Trillion Yesterday, the American Action Forum released its estimate for the total cost for the Democrats proposed “Green New Deal,” will apparently take mountains of green to fund. According to the non-profit group, led by former Congressional Budget office Chief Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the proposal which is cosponsored by Michigan Democrats Andy Levin and Rashida Tlaib could cost American taxpayers $93 trillion or $600,000 per household over its first ten years. While Republicans do not support the plan, Republican Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell has pledged to give the bill a fair vote up or down vote in the Senate. “The Green new deal is the latest example of the extremism of the Democrat Party,” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman. Cox continued, “This $93 trillion boondoggle would bankrupt our economy and put a bullseye on Michigan’s two largest industries, manufacturing and agriculture, all in the name of environmental and economic extremism. This ‘big green steal’ would kill countless Michigan jobs, raise our taxes and cripple our state’s economy. The coastal elites who run the Democrat Party have clearly stopped listening to or caring about American workers if they work in a factory or on a farm.  Democrats are smoking something green if they think that the American people or the people of Michigan will support this insanity.” Much of the plan’s $93 trillion cost reads as a Progressive wish list, including massive subsidies for green energy, universal health care, and for...
