Wendzel statement on State of the State address
RELEASE|January 30, 2020

State Rep. Pauline Wendzel issued the following statements on Governor Whitmer’s second State of the State address.

“Governor Whitmer just doesn’t get it.  Hyper-partisanship has plagued Washington D.C. and look where it’s gotten us. Instead of throwing bombs at Republicans, Governor Whitmer should quit kowtowing to Nancy Pelosi and D.C. Democrats and try leading our state.”

Rep. Wendzel continued, “Before we ask hardworking Michiganders for more of their hard-earned tax dollars, we must ensure every penny paid at the pump goes towards our roads. After slashing nearly $400 million in additional road funding, The Governor’s plan to saddle future generations with mountains of debt is NOT a viable solution to this problem.”

Governor Whitmer ended her speech by asking a rhetorical question about what a woman wants.  Rep. Wendzel responded, “This woman wants lower auto insurance rates, better schools, better roads, and safe drinking water.  This woman wants to prioritize our budget and invest in our state’s priorities.  This woman doesn’t want to raise taxes on hardworking Michiganders and saddle them with mountains of debt.”

Rep. Wendzel finished with the following statement, “The Legislature delivered historical auto-insurance reform in spite of Governor Whitmer, not because of her.  Michigan deserves a governor who leads, not one that throws punches.”
