“Through his health care law President Obama has robbed patients, businesses, and taxpayers of their economic freedom—our legislators just refused to drive the get-away car,” said Scott Hagerstrom, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan. “This is a resounding victory for anyone who opposes the Washington health care takeover, and a true testament to the power of grassroots activism.”
“You can’t put a price tag on the public’s right to know,” said Scott Hagerstrom, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan. “Transparency is our best means to stem corruption and boost public confidence in those government servants who took an oath to serve and protect.”
“In reality, reaching the debt limit (again) is only a symptom of our real problem – years of government overspending. Congress and the President should take every opportunity to enact real spending cuts. The debt ceiling is one, but not the only, opportunity to cut spending. The sequester and CR both should also bring real cuts to the federal budget."
“Passage of right to work, the defeat of a state-based healthcare exchange, and greater educational choice are among just a few of the many policy victories achieved during the past session. We hope to build on these achievements as we work to make Michigan more prosperous and free."
“Freedom is the issue at the core of this debate, and we want to ensure the citizens of Michigan understand this. Under right to work, Michigan workers would still be able to join unions of their choosing and bargain collectively, but no one would be forced to pay dues to a union in order to keep their job."
