“Democrats gave hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Gotion despite Michiganders’ major concerns about the company’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party and how the plant will interfere with our natural resources,” said House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township.
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Tuesday issued the following statement after the House Elections Committee passed House Bill 4156, legislation that would join Michigan to the National Popular Vote Compact and undermine the state’s role as a key swing state.
“Gov. Whitmer’s heavily-skewed, partisan commission is nothing but a Trojan horse for new taxes,” Hall said. “After four years of failure, the governor has no plan to keep young people in Michigan, no excuse for our crumbling roads, and no vision to improve childhood reading levels.”
“Michiganders want public safety in our communities, but House Democrats are pushing radical, unprecedented plans to let dangerous criminals roam our neighborhoods,” said Hall, R-Richland Township. “The Democrats’ newest, extreme proposal could release the most brutal murderers and rapists from prison and inject them back into our communities.”
“House Democrats’ wasteful spending ignores the priorities of the people of Michigan, shoveling taxpayer dollars to unsustainable new programs, pork, and partisan pet projects instead of investing critical resources into education, infrastructure, and local law enforcement,” Hall said.
“Michiganders deserve a thorough, transparent review of projects before their tax dollars are spent, and my plan will add new voices to the table to help protect Michigan taxpayers and use resources wisely,” Hall said.
“Despite efforts from the governor and her allies to block crucial tax relief for every single working family and small business in Michigan, the income tax rollback will happen this year,” Hall said.
“Since the beginning Gov. Whitmer has tried every trick in the book to undermine this income tax cut.” Hall said. “After Republicans stopped the governor’s attempt to block the tax cut with accounting shell games, she and Attorney General Nessel are resorting to fringe legal theories to keep long-lasting relief out of people’s pockets.”
“Gov. Whitmer and Democrats have hurt Michigan’s ability to compete to attract high-paying careers,” Hall said. Their pay cut plan has repealed our right-to-work law, forcing unionization on Michigan workers and taking the fruits of their labor.”
“I negotiated a bipartisan deal in good faith with Gov. Whitmer and Democrat leaders to protect Michigan small businesses from overzealous state tax bureaucrats,” Hall said. “But now that Democrats got the Republican votes they needed, Democrats are infighting and killing good policy that would help local job providers.”
