Across our state, Michigan families are having to tighten their belts to deal with the highest cost-of-living increases we’ve seen in decades. The state should be doing the same.
Instead, House Democrats are wasting our historic surplus on growing the bureaucracy and bloating state government programs in ways we won’t be able to afford after their massive spending spree.Our current surplus is the result of a decade of strong Republican leadership and responsible fiscal planning.

Instead, the Democrat majority is blowing it and leaving the most important needs of our state underfunded and ignored.
