After her decisive win in the first debate, Tudor Dixon remained on offense and again exposed Gretchen Whitmer’s failures that sent Michigan down the wrong path.
Dixon offered common-sense solutions that will get the state back on track by cutting taxes to kickstart the economy and bringing schools back to basics while putting families first.
Meanwhile, Whitmer still had no answers to Michigan’s failing schools, rising violent crime, broken roads, 82,000 lost jobs, and no plan to help families survive. to Democrat-induced inflation and record high gas prices.
Take a look at the highlights of Dixon’s second debate victory:
LOOK: Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed bills aimed at providing relief to Michigan families on several occasions.
Dixson: “Well, I’ve heard Gretchen Whitmer say many times that she would work with anyone on anything, and that she’s bipartisan, but she’s actually vetoed a lot of opportunities to hand over money in people’s pockets. She vetoed a child tax credit, she vetoed two opportunities to cut income tax, she also vetoed aid to retirement for retirement income. So when she had the opportunity to do that, she vetoed it. In fact, even a gas tax exemption came to her, and she opposed it. But we know part of his policy was to raise the gas tax by $0.45 a gallon, so you’d be paying $5 a gallon for gas right now. nothing to help inflation, but I would put money back in your pockets, I would make sure we got that child tax credit, I would s ensure that we reduce income tax, and i will ensure that our seniors , who are on fixed incomes, do not receive more taxes than they should and we can put money back in their pockets.
LOOK: Gretchen Whitmer tried to shut down Line 5 and raise energy prices for all families in Michigan
Dixson: “First and foremost, I think it’s important to talk about Line 5 because we know there is currently an ongoing lawsuit that Gretchen Whitmer would like to close Line 5 in the State of Michigan. That would be catastrophic and increase our energy costs at a time when, exactly what you say, we have people struggling to heat their homes and we know Line 5 provides 65% of the propane in the Upper Peninsula , 55% in the lower peninsula and jet fuel for the Detroit airport It is very important that we do everything we can to reduce costs Another way to reduce energy [costs] would have been to pass a gas tax exemption so people don’t have to pay so much on their gas bill when they fill up their cars. We need to make sure that we are doing everything possible in the State of Michigan to reduce the cost of energy for our people. »
LOOK: Four years later, Gretchen Whitmer still has no plans to fix roads besides raising taxes.
Dixson: “People are wondering when the road from home to work will be fixed. When will this be a priority? Because it’s absolutely true that a broken rim is devastating. I know because I had one this year. In fact, I had five punctures on these roads. They are a total disaster. And they cost the people of Michigan $5,000 a year in road repairs, so if that’s how she fixes the roads, well, I guess we can go back on her other promises as well. What were they? Transparency, drinking water, road repairs? Chess.”
LOOK: Gretchen Whitmer takes credit for handing out $400 checks, but now that victims are suffering and insurance rates are rising, she’s walking away.
Dixson: “I’m glad she admitted that, because her ads are constantly saying she’s been giving checks for $400 to everyone, so I’m glad she’s admitting those checks aren’t from her, and that in fact, it is not putting money back into the pockets of the people of Michigan.
LOOK: Tudor Dixon is the obvious choice to move Michigan forward.
Dixson: “Like many of you I had children out of school for several years, like many of you I had a crushed small business, and like many of you I lost a loved one. Gretchen Whitmer does not want to be defined by his recklessness, his dishonesty or his hypocrisy during this time. But even if we did not look at that, we would consider his governorship a disappointment. His radical policies crushed the state, his choices were destructive. But don’t worry, there’s another choice. Michigan, you’re no better off now than you were four years ago. In fact, we’re in the top ten for crime in the country, we’re in the bottom ten for reading and math in the country. We’ve lost 82,000 jobs and we’ve lost more small businesses than any other state. Gretchen Whitmer will stand on that stage tonight and tell you “this is the success”, but you all felt i pain his failure and you deserve better. If you choose me as governor, I’ll put cops above criminals. I will put parents before politics. I’ll put students above systems, and I’ll make sure we put money back in your pocket and do a better job with the money we have. I will bring back common sense and ensure that we have better schools, more jobs, safer communities and reliable roads. I want to be your governor and I want to bring back a family Michigan. I ask for your vote on November 8 and I promise to serve you well. God bless you.”
