Schuette Signs Norquist Pledge While Supporting Tax Hikes on Michigan’s Middle-Class
GOP Gubernatorial Hopeful Supports Trump-GOP Tax Hike on Middle-Class, Signs Tax Reform Pledge in Direct Conflict

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement today, on behalf of Party Chair Brandon Dillon, regarding Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette’s announcement he has signed Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform pledge not to raise taxes, which is in direct conflict with the tax bill recently passed in the U.S. Senate and supported by Schuette’s “fearless leader” Donald Trump:

“Once again, Bill Schuette is trying to have it both ways — pledge not to raise taxes on corporations, like Big Pharma, and his political patrons, like Betsy DeVos, while supporting the Trump-Republican tax scam that raises taxes on Michigan’s middle-class and adds $1 trillion to the national deficit. Mr. Schuette is going to soon find out that standing on both sides of every issue will ultimately reveal him for what he really is — a political fraud who stands for nothing at all.”
