Michigan Gov. Snyder, in weekly GOP address, touts 'common sense' solutions

McClatchy Washington BureauMarch 22, 2014 

In the Weekly Republican Address, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says an economic comeback is occurring in Michigan and many other states with Republican governors who understand that success is based on creating an environment for more and better jobs, not more and bigger government. "That means getting spending under control, balancing budgets, freeing entrepreneurs from unnecessary regulations and letting the free market take off and do what it does best," says Snyder.

GOPWEEKLYADDRESS — Republican Party

Republicans control governorships in some of the nation's biggest states, and Saturday, Michigan's Gov. Rick Snyder touted GOP policies in the party's weekly address.

Easing economic crises he said, is "as easy as asking: What’s the problem? What are the facts? What’s the common-sense solution?"

He urged civility and cooperation. 

“Let’s put it in place and be relentless in solving one problem after the other, and don’t waste time on blame. Let’s just get the job done," he said.

Snyder also included the Republican message: “It's not about more and bigger government. It's about creating an environment for more and better jobs. That means getting spending under control, balancing budgets, freeing entrepreneurs from unnecessary regulation and letting the free market take off and do what it does best."
