Bad News for MI Dems: MI Jobs Up & Unemployment Down

Michael Joyce - August 9, 2018

Nancy Pelosi admitted that the United States economy “by all indicators is doing well” thanks to the Republican tax bill, but still “enthusiastically” stands by her comments that the legislation was “armageddon for America.”

It's a shame that Michigan Democrats like Debbie Stabenow, Elissa Slotkin, Gretchen Driskell, and Haley Stevens continue to side with Washington cronies like Nancy Pelosi and join in on the “armageddon” fearmongering over the historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. 

Fortunately for Michiganders, the tax cuts passed and the state’s economy has been improving ever since.

MICHIGAN’S ECONOMY HAS PROSPERED UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP

Sen. Stabenow Spoke Out Against The GOP Tax Cuts

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) Voted No On The Tax Cuts And Jobs Act. (H.R. 1, Roll Call Vote #323: Passed 51-48: R 51-1; D 0-48, 12/20/17)

·      Sen. Stabenow Slammed The GOP Tax Cuts Saying That “This Bill Actually Raises Taxes On Middle-Class Families And Seniors.” “We need tax reform that puts more money in the pockets of the middle class, closes tax loopholes that send jobs overseas and supports small businesses and farms across Michigan—unfortunately, this bill does none of these things. This bill actually raises taxes on middle-class families and seniors and leaves Michigan families without health insurance to pay for huge tax giveaways for the wealthiest one percent of Americans. This was a missed opportunity to work together in a bipartisan way on real tax reform.” (Press Release, “Stabenow Statement Following Vote On Republican Tax Bill Conference Report,” Sen. Debbie Stabenow, 12/20/17)
