New York Governor Andrew Cuomo isn’t the only governor who sent nursing home residents to their deaths during the coronavirus pandemic.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is being accused by Michigan Republicans of following the Cuomo model by sending COVID positive patients into nursing facilities where they transmitted the virus to other patients, leading to their deaths.
Like Cuomo, Whitmer has been praised by the media for her unconstitutional lockdowns and was even considered by Joe Biden to be his running mate.
It pays to be incompetent if one is a Democrat governor.
Whitmer is being accused of hiding data to cover up the true extent of nursing home deaths in the Great Lakes State.
Fox News reported, “Republican state legislators in Michigan have Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in their sights as they call for investigations into the governor’s handling of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic…
Lawmakers pointed out that COVID-19 infections and deaths in the Wolverine State ‘have soared’ over the past year and that Whitmer’s administration had ‘been questioned about unintended consequences of her policies.
The senators also called attention to ‘discrepancies’ in cases and death data ‘in the state’s long-term care facilities.’
‘It has now come to our attention that these reporting errors have likely not been resolved,’ the Republicans charged.
‘Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy put patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,’ they added.”
The Wicked Witch of the North has wielded her power—which she unilaterally seized for herself in defiance of the state legislature— like an authoritarian. She’s convinced that she and she alone knows what’s best for Michiganders…typical liberal mindset.
Whitmer and her fellow liberals think that the people are too stupid to run their own lives, so they will make their decisions for them.
Even today, as COVID cases continue to fall in Michigan, Whitmer still is only allowing 25% capacity for indoor dining and curfews are in place throughout the Mitten (because COVID is like a vampire and only comes out after 10 p.m. , apparently).
This is the same governor who violated the original purpose of America: private property rights.
Governor Whitmer wouldn’t let Michiganders travel to their Northern Michigan summer properties, take their own boats out on the water—even though her husband took their boat out, since rules don’t apply to the husband of the governor—and has even set the number of people allowed to be in a private residence.
Despite of her oppressive policies, Whitmer, like Cuomo, failed to protect the people who most needed protection from the virus. The elderly are the most likely subset of the population to die from the virus.
Those over 70, particularly those over 80, are at the highest risk.
Those under 70 should have been allowed to make their own decisions about how to live their lives and how much risk they wanted to take to be exposed to the virus. The death rate for the rest of the population is less than 1% from COVID.
It is higher for elderly nursing home patients and Whitmer in her infinite wisdom thought it was a good idea to send people carrying the virus back to nursing facilities.
If investigations find that she has been pulling a Cuomo and hiding the real data, she should not only be forced to resign, she should be prosecuted and be forced to face civil lawsuits seeking damages from the loved ones of the deceased.
If there is any justice left in the American justice system, that is exactly what should happen.
