When will the madness end?
After already pushing back against reopening the state, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) doubled down on her extreme lockdown plans on CNN when she said she will not be “bullied” into reopening the state.
According to Breitbart, Whitmer stated, “We, you know, have a phased-in re-engagement of our economy, and I had hoped to take the rest of the state to Phase 5, but we dialed it back right before the Fourth of July because we see these numbers increasing. So, not having bars that are serving indoors, that’s one thing. But, you know, we’re going to continue to monitor the numbers. If they keep moving up, we’re going to dial back if we have to. And that’s the last thing any of us wants. I’ve got to tell you, I want to re-engage this economy more than anyone, but I’m not going to do it if it is too risky to do so. And that’s why we’re seeing focus on the epidemiology. I’m not going to be bullied into moving before it’s safe. And if we have to move back, we’re going to.”
