We've watched Governor Gretchen Whitmer have one set of rules for herself and another for everyone else since the beginning of the pandemic. As soon as Whitmer lifted the order banning motorboats, her husband tried to cut the line and get his boat in the water.

Our state is experiencing an unemployment crisis, and Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s latest veto isn’t helping.
