Whitmer: ‘Big Spending is Back’

LANSING, MI, February 12, 2019 – Michigan Freedom Fund Executive Director Tony Daunt provided the following response to Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State address:

            “Make no mistake – Gretchen Whitmer and the central planners in Lansing cannot build a better Michigan; local families can, and they’re doing it every day.

“Every new bureaucracy, or “government shortcoming” Whitmer plans to address with bigger spending comes at the expense of Michigan residents’ jobs and bank accounts. 

“Massive new taxes, spending, and regulations will demolish 8 years of meaningful job growth under conservative, pro-worker leadership. Michigan workers will pay the price.”
