Nesbitt: Governor’s ‘what’s next’ will be more of the same

LANSING, Mich. — Senate Republican Leader Aric Nesbitt, R-Porter Township, made the following statement Thursday in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement that she will deliver a “What’s Next Address” on Aug. 30 to outline her policy priorities for the fall legislative session:

“If there is one thing we have learned to count on from our governor, it is her gift to say all the right things but do the opposite. When her party won its slim legislative majority last fall, she spoke about wanting to work in good faith and bipartisan partnership; instead, Democrats have kept Republicans in the dark and at arm’s length to bulldoze forward with their radical partisan agenda.

“She has spoken about helping Michigan’s small businesses but has led an effort to give big union bosses unprecedented power and pour millions of taxpayer dollars into multi-national corporations. She has said she wants to help ease the cost of living for the people of this state, but her tax schemes pick winners and losers, and she teamed up with the attorney general to try and block a permanent income tax cut promised to all Michiganders.

“Our governor speaks as though she is a bridge-building moderate, but her actions show her to be the champion for the far-left agenda of radical progressives that she is. Unfortunately for struggling families, seniors, and small business owners across Michigan, I can only assume ‘what’s next’ on Aug. 30 will be more of the same thing.”
