Gaslight Gary Admits He Is THE KEY To An Unchecked Socialist Agenda In The Senate

LANSING, Mich., November 2, 2020 – Gaslight Gary Peters claims to be a bi-partisan moderate in his television ads but now admits he is the KEY to an unchecked socialist agenda in the U.S. Senate.    Peters, who was finally made available to reporters as he campaigned in-person in Detroit, “said his re-election is critical to the Democrats taking control of the U.S. Senate.”    And if the Democrats win a Senate majority, a socialist agenda will be waiting for Peters – someone who meekly votes with his party leadership 95% of the time.   Just last week, progressive leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made Peters’ importance to the socialist agenda clear.   Ocasio-Cortez said Peters’ seat must be saved to ensure a “once in a generation”, “memorable shift” to progressive polices 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 socialist plans in 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%...

Did Double-Dipping Gary Peters Also Take Two Healthcare Plans? He Refused To Answer Media Questions, So Who Knows

The Invisible Senator is hiding in plain sight after refusing to answer media questions yet continuing to campaign around the state   LANSING, Mich., October 31, 2020 – Gary Peters is a U.S. Senator— for now— but he is also a master politician who knows how to work the system to his personal benefit. Also like a career politician, he’s refusing to talk to the media about questions regarding a possible double dip on taxpayer-funded healthcare insurance.   Why would he do that? Because he does not want to discuss how he has worked the system to benefit himself on healthcare, even as his constitutions are crushed by the huge costs of the ACA.   Peters is already double-dipping on government paychecks, collecting a Senate paycheck and State of Michigan legislative “retirement” check each month.   Now, The Detroit News is reporting that Peters is hiding from reporters wanting answers about Peters’ personal healthcare insurance situation, saying that “Peters has declined interview requests to talk further about his own health care plan.”   Peters originally told The Detroit News in 2013 that he used a healthcare plan obtained from an ACA exchange.   But, in December of that year, Peters filed amendments to his U.S. Senate financial disclosure statements stating that he had actually been taking the exclusive state legislative retirement health insurance for years, instead.    This week, Peters’ campaign apparently provided an undisclosed document to The Detroit News claiming he was registered for an ACA exchange plan in...

ICYMI: Peters Still Refusing To Discuss His Gold-Plated, Taxpayer-Funded Health Insurance

John James says, “Peters is so afraid of his elitist plan being discovered, he lied about it…Peters doesn’t seem to realize or doesn’t seem to care how much health care costs for everyone else.”   LANSING, Mich., October 29, 2020 – In case you missed it: As the U.S. Senate race closes, John James is on offense on healthcare, calling out Gary Peters for not understanding the unaffordable nature of the so-called “Affordable” Care Act.   James wrote in The Detroit News today that the ACA is unaffordable for many in Michigan, “But Sen. Gary Peters wouldn’t know that. Peters is part of an exclusive gold-plated, taxpayer funded plan. Peters is so afraid of his elitist plan being discovered, he lied about it to media, amended his financial disclosures and refuses to talk about his plan. Peters doesn’t seem to realize or doesn’t seem to care how much health care costs for everyone else.”    James notes that Michigan families are drowning in rising costs that no one can afford, including:   Since the ACA’s creation in 2009, wages have gone up 26% while deductibles have soared 162%.   Some families are paying nearly $40,000 annually in medical costs, while Michigan’s median income is just $75,703.   James knows what it’s like to deal with the ACA in the real world. He is an employer and provides health coverage to his employees. His family uses the same health insurance his employees do.   Gary Peters uses exclusive health insurance paid for by taxpayers,...

Biden/Harris Abysmal Record On Criminal Justice

Both of their records on criminal justice have led to the mass incarceration of young black men, devastating the African American community of America   LANSING, Mich., October 29, 2020 – The Biden/Harris campaign has gone to great lengths to portray themselves as allies to America’s black community. However, their policies on criminal justice show an abysmal track record that has led to the mass incarceration of young black men, devastating the African American community.   According to PolitiFact, the 1994 Biden Crime Bill “provided funds to expand and keep policies in place that would increase the number of people behind bars.”. Furthermore, the New York Post reports that Harris’s track record on crime “disproportionately targeted low-income people of color” and stated “Harris’ handling of wrongful convictions has also been called into question”.   “President Trump has spent the last 4 years undoing the damage caused by the Biden/Harris criminal justice system, with policies like his landmark Criminal Justice reform – The First Step Act.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “Tens of thousands of African American men have been reunited with their families and President Trump will continue his work over the next 4 years to ensure a brighter future for all Americans.” More >

LANSING, Mich., October 28, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Flint. “We are so excited to have Vice President Mike Pence with us again, as he travels to Flint.

We are 6 days away from returning the favor, when we deliver Michigan for President Trump and Vice President Pence on Tuesday. More >

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 >
