FINAL DRAWING WILL TAKE PLACE ON OCTOBER 4th AND THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE FALL BANQUET!
Last night at the Michigan Republican Party’s Mackinac “leadership” conference, Rick Snyder effectively rolled out his reelection campaign, using the twin themes of “One Successful Nerd” and “He Said It, He Did It.” I urge you to take a closer look at those themes this weekend
.He Said It:
“I’m a job creator.”Reality check:
Snyder’s reelection campaign won’t want to talk about his career at Gateway. During his time there, it went from a successful company in the 1990s to a company that in the 2000s eliminated and outsourced thousands of American jobs. In 1998, it was revealed that Gateway agreed to pay $120,384 to 26 female job applicants who were allegedly rejected and discriminated against while Snyder was president. Secretary of Labor Alexis Herman announced that “the agency’s investigation determined Gateway 2000’s initial application review process screened out qualified women at a much higher rate than men and failed to maintain adequate records of its selection process.”
It’s clear that when it comes his real record on creating jobs in the state, Snyder’s dashboard is broken. He claims he wants to put a stop to “happy talk,” but his dashboard rates Michigan’s economic growth with a thumbs up – even though it’s slowed on his watch. He takes credit for 200,000 private sector jobs created on his watch, but 50,000 of those were created before he took office. He calls himself “one successful nerd,” but Michigan’s unemployment rate has increased for three straight months. It was fifth worst when he took office, and it’s fourth worst today.
It’s easy to be a successful nerd when you grade your own papers.He Said It:
“It was out of concern for his and other children’s future in Michigan that Rick decided to run for Governor.”Reality check:
Snyder has made devastating cuts cuts for K-12 and higher education, leading to widespread teacher layoffs, forced closings of community public schools, and higher tuition costs, which amount to yet another tax increase on middle-class families.He Said It:
Last night in a de facto reelection announcement speech, Snyder said creating jobs “isn’t about handing out tax credits to buy people to come to Michigan.” Reality check:
On this he’s right, but he’s also One Hypocritical Nerd. The centerpiece of Snyder’s economic agenda was a $1.8 billion corporate tax giveaway that has failed to create jobs. He just got back from his third taxpayer-funded trip to China, with nothing to show for it. Under his leadership, the MEDC has spent taxpayer dollars on advertising the state’s “right-to-work” law, the most contentious piece of his term in office.He Said It:
“The right answer is not to talk about politics, but to talk about our family of 10 million people.” Reality check:
In a July filing in DeBoer v. Snyder
, arguing a lesbian couple should be barred from adopting each other’s children, the Snyder Administration asserted they are not a family. Since then the rhetoric used by Snyder’s attorney’s has only gotten more bizarre and unhinged, arguing in a September filing that the state’s ban on marriage equality is necessary so the state of Michigan can “regulate sexual relationships.” He has also placed a new unfair tax on seniors’ pensions, to pay for his $1.8 billion tax cut for corporate special interests. Bottom line:
Michiganders know that our state’s greatest assets are our people, our land and our Great Lakes. Instead of investing in our people, standing up for our Great Lakes, and protecting our land, Rick Snyder has taken this state in the wrong direction. Snyder has worked to attack the rights of working families, dismantle environmental protections, and destroy women’s rights – and his failed leadership on job creation has produced one of the nation’s worst unemployment rates, falling wages, increased poverty, and a shrinking middle class. We need an economy that works for everyone – not just the wealthy and well-connected like Rick Snyder and Donald Trump. There’s no such thing as a strong economy without a strong middle class, and Michigan needs elected leaders who understand Michigan values to build that economy.
