LANSING, Mich., January 29, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement from Chairman Laura Cox regarding tonight’s State of the State address by Governor Gretchen Whitmer:
“Tonight’s address is yet another reminder of Gretchen Whitmer's failed first year as governor, and even more of the same empty promises for the future. Instead of committing to work with Republicans to find commonsense solutions to Michigan’s problems, Governor Whitmer made it clear that she’ll go it alone without the legislature if they don’t agree with her tax and spend policies." said Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, "From her support for impeachment and Medicare-for-all, and her unrealistic roads proposal that raises taxes on hardworking Michiganders – Whitmer has proved that she is no different than the same out-of-touch liberal Democrats determined to sabotage the American dream."
