Governor Whitmer has signed a COVID-19 relief bill for her state.

Monday, Whitmer signed a bill that allocates $384 million in COVID relief to help Michigan recover from the pandemic.

Her office says the Senate Bill supports the recovery of individuals, families, and small businesses. All but $17 million is covered by federal COVID relief funding, with the remainder coming out of Michigan’s general fund.

Whitmer says her top priority continues to be moving the economy forward, and putting the state’s families and small businesses first.

I truly don’t know whose decision it was to pay the people not working more money in this pandemic, but look at where it got us, a shortage of everything, because there’s a shortage of workers! They pay the lazy to sit home, and the hard working people to continue to work through it all nothing!

So Whitmer’s idea of moving the economy forward is to waste more money on handouts that will be paid for by the few people who are still working?

She’s an economic genius! Whitmer and AOC should write some papers together.
