LANSING, MI – As inflation hit a 41-year record high, Michigan Freedom Fund executive director Tori Sachs criticized Governor Whitmer for making things worse by vetoing legislation that would have let Michigan families, workers and seniors keep more of their own money.
“Record inflation in the Whitmer-Biden economy is costing families more money every time they buy groceries, fill up their gas tank, and pay their bills. The people of Michigan deserve relief but Governor Whitmer did the opposite when she vetoed three bills that would have let people keep more of their money,” said Michigan Freedom Fund executive director Tori Sachs. “Inflation is Whitmer’s biggest tax hike, hitting families where it hurts, and her partisan vetoes increased the pain each Michigander is feeling.”
In March, Whitmer vetoed $2.5 billion in relief that would have cut the state income tax, created a child tax credit, and increased exemptions for seniors. Whitmer then vetoed legislation that would have suspended the state’s 27-cent gas tax in April. In June, Whitmer vetoed another Republican attempt to cut taxes and provide relief to families and workers.
