LANSING – After last night’s State of the Union, in which President Obama laid out a clear vision and concrete plan for a thriving middle class, Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer released the following statement:
“During last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama laid out a plan that builds on the progress we made during his first term and strengthens the middle class. He spoke directly to Michiganders about how we can make America a magnet for jobs and manufacturing, equip every American with the skills they need to do those jobs, and ensure hard work earns a decent living by raising the minimum wage and making sure women receive equal pay for equal work. Combined with the President’s plan for balanced deficit reduction, none of these proposals will add a dime to our deficit.
“The time has come for Republicans in Congress to stop their partisan grandstanding and start voting on commonsense proposals that will help the middle class thrive and secure a better future for our children.”
