Michigan issues are America's issues. That's why I am honored to be giving tonight's Democratic response to the State of the Union address.
We know Donald Trump will do two things this evening: exaggerate his accomplishments and blame everyone else for his failures. He won't talk about the jobs that left Michigan because of his failed policies or his reckless decision to roll back EPA protections while PFAS poisons our drinking water. He won't mention his attacks on women's reproductive rights, bring up his lawsuit to overturn the ACA, or mention his plans to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid if he gets a second term.
Stand with Michigan Democrats and hold Trump accountable for his broken promises to working families across Michigan >>>
Tonight, I will be talking about these issues and more, because Democrats in Michigan and across the country are focused on solutions that make a difference in people's lives, like fair wages and equal pay, a clean environment, reproductive rights, and affordable healthcare.
We need a Democrat in charge of the country to move us forward, and since we know the road to the White House runs through Michigan--we have the opportunity to make that happen. It starts by having a strong Michigan Democratic Party with an army of grassroots volunteers and organizers on the ground in every corner of the state all the way to Election Day.
That's why I wanted to ask you something important before I respond to Trump tonight: Can I count on you to join me in supporting the Michigan Democratic Party by making a contribution now toward victory in November?
Michigan Democrats made history up and down the ballot in 2018, and we will do it again in 2020--but only if you're with us all the way. Make an investment in winning Michigan and defeating Trump by chipping in $5, $10, or any amount you can afford today because when we stand together, we win together! >>>
