While Gretchen Whitmer Supports Higher Taxes On Michigan Families, Bill Schuette Fights For Tax Relief

Whitmer has made it clear that she would force Michiganders to pay more for her big government programs.

Per The RGA:

In Michigan’s gubernatorial race, a clear contrast has emerged between Republican Bill Schuette and Democrat Gretchen Whitmer on the issue of taxes. While Schuette campaigns on reducing the tax burden for working families across the state, Whitmer has made it clear that she would force Michiganders to pay more for her big government programs.

Crain’s Detroit Business reports that Whitmer “has left open the possibility of increasing taxes and fees” while Schuette is “vowing a ‘fresh start’ for the state’s budget and argues a tax cut will fuel economic growth through more jobs and people flocking to the state.”

After Whitmer spent years in the state legislature supporting Jennifer Granholm’s tax hikes that led to 15 percent unemployment and hundreds of thousands of job losses, she’s now promising to bring only more of the same. Bill Schuette has made it clear that he is the only candidate running for governor who will fight for lower taxes and keep Michigan moving forward.

Crain’s Detroit Businessreports:

Neither candidate has said what programs or entire agencies in state government they will eliminate to fund their campaign promises, though Whitmer has left open the possibility of increasing taxes and fees…

Schuette is vowing a ‘fresh start’ for the state’s budget and argues a tax cut will fuel economic growth through more jobs and people flocking to the state — and paying taxes.

In 2007, former Gov. Jennifer Granholm and a split Legislature agreed to raise the income tax rate from 3.9 percent to 4.35 percent in what was portrayed as a temporary measure to help the state weather the recession.
