Michigan House Democrats Disappointed

Posted at 2:12 PM, Dec 06, 2012

LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan House Democrats are disappointed in the House Republicans, but say they are standing firm to protect the middle class.

According to a statement by the Mich. House Deomocratic Caucus, “House Democrats are disappointed in the tactics that the House Republicans are employing at this time with access to the floor. The House Democrats are standing firm when it comes to protecting the middle class families in Michigan.”

House Democrats also say Republicans don’t have the interests of all Michigan residents in mind. “Governor Snyder and Legislative Republicans would rather cave into special interests and institute Washington DC style politics by pushing the toxic and divisive partisan wish list of the extremists within their own party than create jobs or fight for fair wages and benefits for ALL residents.”
