Michigan Democrats End Legislative Session, Quitting for the Year, Will Still Take Home Salary Paid for by Taxpayers
LANSING, MI – Today, Michigan Democrats called an early end to the legislative session but will still receive a paycheck paid for by Michigan’s taxpayers. The Resolution declares that the legislature will adjourn on Tuesday, November 14, meaning lawmakers will have no responsibility to return to Lansing until sometime next year.
Michigan Freedom Fund encourages residents to call Speaker of the House Joe Tate and tell him — Michiganders don’t quit, and neither should lawmakers.
“Michiganders don’t quit, but Democrat politicians do,” said Mary Drabik, Communications Director for the Michigan Freedom Fund. “As Michiganders get up every day and continue working to support their families, Democrats chose to quit work early, taking a taxpayer-funded vacation. Michigan families deserve better and we won’t forget that while we’re going to work to make a living, they won’t have to lift a finger to collect their paycheck.”
