The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes.
“This has to be a joke. The MIGOP is more concerned about how many people can watch the Tigers play in person on opening day, than they are about the continued impact that COVID-19 is having on our lives, and the lives of our families and loved ones. The Michigan Republicans have somehow found the time to create problems, but can’t seem to find the time or political will to allocate in the full relief dollars we received from the federal government. Money that would help schools, communities, and small businesses today. Money that would help get more vaccinations in the arms of the people that need it the most. Money that would be much more effective in getting us back to some sort of normalcy than whatever the MIGOP is complaining about today.”
