Michigan Governor Whitmer has issued some of the strictest orders in the U.S. to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and many residents of the state are fed up with the governor infringing on their constitutional rights

She has banned residents from visiting family or friends or being able to purchase items that are deemed nonessential. Yet at the same time the sale of lottery tickets is deemed essential and abortions can continue because they are life sustaining.

Protesters gathered outside her home on Thursday demanding that the state be reopened.

“We wanted to send Gretchen Whitmer a message, we didn’t want to surrender our liberties just for a little temporary safety,”

The Michigan Legislature is convening on Friday to create an oversight committee to review the governor’s coronavirus orders and potentially take away some of her powers.

Many politicians feel that Governor Whitmer has overstepped her powers and that she needs to be stopped.

“The House & Senate will convene tomorrow to create a special oversight committee on COVID-19 to examine our government’s response. Michigan needs to handle this pandemic seriously yet properly. It’s what the people deserve, and we will see that it happens.”
– Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield

It seems that Governor Whitmer is struggling to understand the concept of what essential means. It’s ok to purchase marijuana, lottery tickets, alcohol and get an abortion but lawn care, fishing, and construction aren’t allowed.

Her orders violate individuals constitutional rights and residents are getting frustrated with her abuse of power. Hopefully the Michigan Legislature will be successful in taking away some of her powers.
