Though he receives criticism from both the right and the left, Snyder appears to be focused on the key issues for getting Michigan back on track including the economy and taxes. As we have said before, solutions come from cooperating, communicating, and compromising – not from partisan ideology.
Governor Snyder explains his focus on solutions:
“I’m a proud Republican — there’s no issue with that at all, so why can’t I be a proud Republican and just try to solve problems?” Mr. Snyder, who turns 54 on Sunday, said in an interview.
“I feel a lot of this is just common sense,” he went on. “If you dropped all the rhetoric, all the fighting, in a lot of ways people could come up with solutions they could all agree on.”
