Mike Cox Highlights Plan to Cut Spending, Cut Taxes in New Statewide TV Ad

LANSING, MI— The Mike Cox 2010 campaign today unveiled its latest statewide television commercial, titled “The Mike Cox Plan.”

The advertisement, debuting across Michigan today on broadcast and cable television, highlights Mike Cox’s plan to cut wasteful government spending by $4 billion and to cut taxes on job makers and families by $2 billion.

“The Mike Cox Plan will restore jobs and put Michigan back in business, providing a better future for Michigan families,” the ad says.

Mike Cox is the only candidate willing to discuss real solutions to the real problems facing Michigan—out-of-control spending and taxes—and to lay out $4 billion in tough, specific state government spending cuts and $2 billion in tax cuts he will make as governor.

“Michigan’s economy won’t turn the corner until state government finally tightens its belt the way families across the state have been tightening theirs,” said Cox.  “Cutting wasteful government spending and cutting taxes will be my first priority as governor so entrepreneurs and working families can keep more of their hard earned tax dollars and use them to create jobs and grow the economy.”

As Attorney General, Cox has demonstrated his ability to do more with less.  Cox has made the tough choices, cutting spending across his department, from closing offices to slashing printing budgets.  Cox has also battled to prevent recent pay increases for state employees at a time when many Michigan families are dealing with pay cuts or layoffs.  Additionally, Cox gave back 5 percent of his own pay.
