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.”

  1. He’s a terrible governor and he’s running from his record and we all know it. Even his supporters know it. The state is a mess because Snyder raised taxes on the middle class to dole out huge tax cuts to his corporate cronies like Devos, Koch, and the Mackinac Center loons. This is terrible tax policy because it hurts the middle class who are the engines of the economy. Snyder belongs to the school of the 1% trickle down voodoo economic policy. This crap has never worked and it only steals from the middle class to benefit his buddies the 1%. Vote Blue November 4, 2014 and send this clown home. Michigan deserves better.
