GOP Tax Plan Passes with Endorsement from Calley, Schuette

Calley and Schuette Supported Raising Taxes For Michigan Middle-Class Families 

Today, the Congressional tax bill endorsed by Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidates Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley is on its way to becoming law. 

The Senate passed the tax reform bill today that will raise taxes on Michigan middle-class families, giving huge tax breaks to the wealthy, and ballooning the national debt. 

Calley and Schuette both endorsed the bill. Calley called it a “game changer” while Schuette said it was “just what the doctor ordered.”

“Republicans in Congress just voted to raise taxes on Michigan middle-class families and Brian Calley and Bill Schuette cheered them on,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “Now as they run for governor, Schuette and Calley will have to explain to Michigan voters why they supported raising their taxes. They decided to stand with Washington Congressional Republicans instead of the middle-class families of Michigan. Next year, voters will have an opportunity to send a message to Schuette and Calley about their wrong priorities.”



Lt. Governor Brian Calley Supported the GOP Tax Plan (R, MI): “The reform plan President Trump unveiled last month will be a game changer for all Americans. We know its principles are sound because of our experience here in Michigan. A simple, fair and efficient tax code will go a long way for everyone.” [White House, State and Local Leaders Push for Tax Reform, 12/12/17]

Attorney General Supported the GOP Tax Plan (R, MI): “The last president to reform America’s tax code was Ronald Reagan. During his time in office, America added 15.9 million jobs, an increase in the nation’s workforce of more than 17 percent. Now more than ever, our economy needs a booster shot. President Trump’s tax reform is just what the doctor ordered to simplify the code, create more jobs and spur greater growth in our economy.”[White House, State and Local Leaders Push for Tax Reform, 12/12/17]
