@Mike_Cox: A Specific Plan to Cut Government Spending, Cut Taxes & Protect The Constitution



Greetings again from the trail. We've got less than 100 days now until the August Primary election and the campaign is kicking into high gear. Hopefully you were able to tune this past Wednesday to the first televised debate between myself and the other Republican candidates for governor.

The Michigan Republican Party did a great job putting the event together and voters saw real differences between each of the candidates.

This State's unemployment rate is still the worst in the nation and if we're going to put Michigan back to work we're going to have to right-size Lansing's budget and give more money back to families and job makers.

I was the only candidate on the stage Wednesday who laid out a specific plan to cut government spending, to cut taxes and to protect the Constitution. And if the media accounts are any indication, folks know that I'm a fighter with a proven track record who is willing to go to battle to protect Michigan residents and their pocketbooks.


And the battle to protect the Constitution from Governor Granholm, President Obama and Obamacare continues as well. I was pleased this week when the State of Oklahoma signaled they will be joining our lawsuit to overturn the unconstitutional health care reform bill. I filed the suit minutes after the President signed the bill into law and now 21 other states are suing, too.

I continue to do everything in my power to stop Obamacare but I still need your help. Please visit http://mikecox2010.com/petition-health-care-bill and sign our online petition to tell the President and Congress enough is enough!

Then forward this update to one of your friends or family members and ask them to do the same!


Mike Cox 2010 petitions continue to circulate across Michigan and the time to get them back to campaign headquarters is now. We need your help getting on the ballot. Please show your support by contacting Robbie Rankey at (734) 525-5035 or emailing Robbie at volunteer@mikecox2010.com to help circulate petitions or to mail in the signatures you've already got. This campaign is a grassroots effort and we appreciate all of your help.

Campaign gear is still available, too. Volunteers who collect 50 petition signatures will win a T-shirt and if you bring in 100 petition signatures you will earn a Mike Cox 2010 fleece!


Please also consider joining Club 2010 and making a contribution of $20.10, to add your voice to the chorus of concerned families, individuals and businesses who have had enough of the timid acts, high taxes, overspending, overregulation and failed policies that have put this state in the position it's in today.

I'm fighting to cut government spending, cut taxes by $2 billion and to protect the Constitution because Michigan is ready for bold leadership. And for ideas that will put this state back to work. We must start immediately--and I hope that you will act, by joining Club 2010, and making a contribution of $20.10 today.

Thank you again for your continued help as we fight to turn Michigan around. We are going to cut spending, we are going to cut taxes and together we will bring jobs back to Michigan!

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox Visits Kalamazoo to Discuss Health-Reform Ideas

Kalamazoo Gazette
Saturday, April 24, 2010

Cox, who is vying for the Republican nomination for governor, made a campaign stop Saturday in Kalamazoo... He glad-handed with attendees and vendors at the Kalamazoo Gun & Knife Show and pitched his ideas for reform...

It's the individual mandate to purchase health insurance that he has a problem with.

"The government can't tell you to buy something," Cox said. "That's what makes this unconstitutional."

Cox's campaign is pushing health savings accounts as a reasonable way to rein in out-of-control health-care costs and make coverage more affordable for consumers.

"With the rising cost of health care, health savings accounts represent one way for small businesses and individuals to acquire quality health care at an affordable price," his campaign said in a press release. "Mike Cox will create tax incentives for businesses that provide HSAs to their employees and will assist self-employed residents who want to create HSAs."

Lots of Heat, Some Light in GOP Debate

Thursday, April 22, 2010

The bulk of the debate dealt with the similarities in the field of would-be governors: Smaller government, lower taxes, more responsible spending.

But there was a contentious side, the pent-up frustration over whispers and innuendo bubbling just under the surface that were finally aired in the open, primarily between Mike Cox and Rick Snyder.

Cox: "You know, Rick, it's interesting you say that because when I was an 18-year-old fighting in the Marines, no one called me a career politician. When I was prosecuting homicides in Detroit no one called me a career politician. While you were making millions sending 19,000 jobs overseas, no one was calling me a career politican. While you were pulling millions out of Gateway and engaging in insider trading lawsuits, no one was calling me a career politican. But, I guess you have to do that to cover up your record of quote, unquote creating jobs in China not in Michigan."

The state attorney general went on the attack Wednesday as the top five GOP candidates sparred during a televised debate on the Michigan State University campus...

Cox chided Bouchard and Snyder for failing to back his lawsuit regarding federal health care legislation. He also accused Snyder of outsourcing jobs while Snyder was head of Gateway computers, and attacked Hoekstra for voting for the federal government bailout of banks

Mike Cox Seeks Reversal of DPS Limits on Robert Bobb

Saturday, April 24, 2010

State Attorney General Mike Cox filed an appeal on Friday that claims a lower court's injunction improperly limits Robert Bobb's authority over financial matters in Detroit Public Schools.

Bobb, the district's emergency financial manager, cannot proceed with his plan to close schools or implement an academic plan, the lower court ruled, putting $106 million in federal aid in jeopardy, the appeal suggests.

"Every day that Mr. Bobb's hands are tied, the risks to students increase," said Cox, who is requesting the state court of appeals in Lansing reverse the injunction. "Robert Bobb's power to continue reforming the Detroit Public Schools must be restored immediately."
