Granholm: Republican Lawmakers Vote to Raise Taxes, Gut Education, Health Care, and Public Safety
“I, along with both Republicans and Democrats in the Legislature, want to provide incentives for business to create jobs,” said Granholm. “But I will not raise taxes on families or gut education health care, and public safety to give tax breaks to big business.”
Granholm said it would have been easy to reach a compromise if Republicans had accepted Democratic amendments that would have prevented a tax shift and prevented massive cuts in vital services. But Republicans voted against or blocked these amendments, revealing their true intentions.
