“Low- and middle-income families are overtaxed, fed up and want the wealthy and well-connected to pay their fair share. So what do House Republicans propose?

“Michiganders all across the political spectrum and in every region of the state voiced their support for my plan to create a graduated income tax that would cut taxes for 95 percent of Michiganders who are working hard and struggling to get by. My plan raises up to $760 million to help invest in roads, education and communities by asking the wealthy and well-connected to pay their fair share as well.”
