According to Governor Whitmer, “recovery” means having fewer jobs and higher prices. While Michigan families struggle, Whitmer is still making things worse. Moments ago, Whitmer vetoed legislation to suspend Michigan’s gas tax.
And Dana Nessel’s politically-motivated Flint water prosecution suffered a self-inflicted setback at the Court of Appeals.
We have the news you need to know in this week’s Frontlines of Freedom.
|MICHIGAN STILL HASN’T RECOVERED FROM WHITMER’S LOCKDOWNS|
Governor Whitmer is still trying to rewrite history, this time by taking credit for Michigan’s weak “recovery” while the state still has 152,700 fewer jobs than when she first took office.
Whitmer’s own lockdowns and mandates crushed Michigan’s economy. Nearly a third of Michigan businesses were affected – twice the national average.
As I shared on Fox2’s “Let It Rip” this week, 60% of voters are ready for someone else. It’s not hard to see why.
|WHITMER IS MAKING THINGS WORSE|
Across the state, workers are struggling with rising prices, and Whitmer’s policies are making things worse.
Inflation is at a 40-year high in the Whitmer-Biden economy, but when the legislature presented her with a bipartisan bill to let families keep more of their income, Whitmer vetoed it.
Gas prices are still over $4 a gallon, but Whitmer just vetoed legislation to suspend the state’s gas tax, too. Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel are still doing everything they can to shut down Line 5, which would drive energy prices even higher.
Children are facing a mental health crisis, but Whitmer still shut down Michigan schools TWICE. And when the Legislature passed reading scholarships and opportunity accounts to help students address learning loss, Whitmer vetoed those, too.
Whitmer’s actions – and inactions – are making the problems Michigan families face worse.
|DANA NESSEL’S TAINTED FLINT TRIAL|
Dana Nessel was warned. But she STILL refused to use a “taint team” to review evidence… and now Michigan taxpayers and the people of Flint will be paying the price.
This week, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that Nessel’s prosecutors must use an independent taint team to review documents that may be covered by attorney-client privilege. It’s a devastating setback for Nessel. It will cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and could delay Nessel’s politically-motivated Flint water trial for years.
Worse, it was an amateur, unforced error – exactly what we have come to expect from Dana Nessel.
