Governor Gretchen Whitmer is desperately trying to rewrite history. Whitmer went to Newsweek magazine to defend her secret, hypocritical trip to Florida claiming that she hasn’t violated any of her own rules.
Whitmer’s made it clear – what she says and what she does couldn’t be more different.
Auditor General Doug Ringler agreed last week to conduct a comprehensive study at the request of House Oversight Committee Chairman Steven Johnson of Wayland. Johnson is among Republican lawmakers who have questioned if there is an undercount and who have criticized Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for allowing hospitalized COVID-19 patients no longer needing acute care, but still in quarantine, to return to designated units in nursing homes as some hospitals faced surging cases.
The condition of Michigan’s roads is better than had been projected for 2021. They would be in even better shape roads if Gov. Gretchen Whitmer hadn’t cut road spending after the Legislature refused to enact a major gas tax hike she had proposed. The governor also authorized $800 million in road repair debt, repayment of which will reduce money available for future repairs.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer held a summit for small businesses this week, full of riveting panel topics like: “What small business needs in the coming year” and “Federal support for small businesses: What is new, and what to expect.” But most small business owners were scrambling to prepare for her sudden — and seemingly unscientific — repeal of mask mandates and dining restrictions. They didn’t have much time for the governor’s pandering, especially to a problem she created. It was her arbitrary and excessive orders that forced small businesses to close their doors in the first place during her mishandling of the pandemic.
