After Vetoing Tax Relief, Whitmer Proposes $500 “Rebates” to Help Families Struggling with Inflation Resulting from Her Own Policies

LANSING, MI – The Michigan Freedom Fund today condemned Governor Whitmer’s hypocrisy after she proposed a $500 “rebate” for Michigan families, despite vetoing the suspension of Michigan’s gas tax and tax relief for workers, seniors and families earlier this year.

“You can always count on Governor Whitmer to do whatever it takes to advance her own political standing and today’s proposed ‘rebates’ are an election year stunt after she vetoed tax cuts on gas and relief for families and seniors. After shutting down Michigan’s economy and rubber stamping the Joe Biden agenda, Governor Whitmer vetoed tax relief for Michigan workers, families and seniors who were struggling to survive the inflation their policies created,” said Michigan Freedom Fund executive director Tori Sachs. “We applaud Republicans in Lansing for proposing meaningful tax relief for family pocketbooks while Whitmer shows her desperation to slow her falling poll numbers.”
