MDP Statement on Pence Visit to Sell Republican Tax Plan

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement today, on behalf of Party Chair Brandon Dillon, regarding Mike Pence’s visit to metro Detroit to discuss the forthcoming Republican tax plan:

“Mike Pence is headed here to sell a Republican tax cut that only benefits the richest residents of our state while raising taxes on the working people of Michigan in order to pay for it. Like their many failed attempts to repeal health care, the tax plan being floated by Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress, like Fred Upton, is just another bait-and-switch scam designed to rob from working men and women to line the pockets of Republican donors and big money bosses, like Dick and Betsy DeVos. We all know Donald Trump and Mike Pence don’t like facts, but their numbers don’t lie — under the Republican plan, people that work for a living will pay higher taxes and people that already have plenty will get even more.”
