Snyder Dodges Accountability During Michigan Radio Program
The governor tried to rewrite his record, blamed others for problems, showed no leadership
MICHIGAN — Governor Rick Snyder was on Michigan Public Radio’s Q&A program, Michigan Calling, this morning, where he dodged questions and tried to rewrite his record of standing up for big businesses and harming Michigan families.
“Gov. Snyder has consistently acted to put the well-being of corporations and his CEO cohorts above the interests of Michigan families and today he tried to whitewash that history,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Whether he’ll admit it or not, Gov. Snyder cut education funding and increased taxes on families and seniors so he could pay for a massive corporate tax giveaway. All the while, he’s attacked women’s access to health care, actively discriminated against the LGBT community and worked to dismantle unions that give people power in the workplace.”
