Michigan’s Gov Begs Feds For Bailout After Running State Budget Into The Ground [Opinion]

Opinion | You may remember her from such stunts as …. threatening doctors and pharmacists who prescribed a specific, and according to some doctors, wonderful treatment for the DNTBM (Disease Not To Be Mentioned).

Just recently the governor backed the insane call  to “defund the police.”

Now Whitmer begs for help.

According to WILX:

During her press conference, the governor listed the amount of money the state has spent in fighting COVID-19. She said the state has more than $436 million fighting COVID-19 in the past 10 weeks, which is money the state wasn’t planning on spending when the budget was set a year ago, on top of the $3 billion the state has already lost in tax revenue.

The governor said there is no way to cut spending enough to fill the estimated $6 billion hole over the next two years. She called on the federal government to come together to help Michigan and other states facing budget challenges.Under the current federal cares act, states can’t use federal aid money to pay for things that were in the budget before the pandemic started.

Yes, it is possible for Congress to allocate the money in a bill, however, if it does not have a super majority, it is going to require Trump’s signature.  Odds are Trump is going to have the final say on whether or not these funds get distributed to the great state of Michigan.

I would love to be able to listen in if Whitmer ever had the courage to call Trump up and grovel to him, begging for him to use our money to solve the problems she helped create.

Do you think the people of Texas, Alaska, Florida, or any other state should be forced to pay for her failed managment?  I sure don’t, but hey, that’s just like, my opinion.
