Republican state senator who sought repeal of emergency law tests positive for coronavirus (MI)

Source: Detroit Free Press

LANSING A Republican state senator who sponsored a bill to limit the emergency powers Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has used to address the pandemic has tested positive for COVID-19.

Barrett has been a vocal critic of Whitmer's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and sponsored a bill to repeal the 1945 law Whitmer has used to maintain a state of emergency related to the coronavirus. The state of emergency allows Whitmer to issue emergency orders to restrict business operations and require the wearing of masks in public places.


_______

Barrett, 39, who is married with three children, told the Free Press Sunday his testing positive does not change how he feels about the way Whitmer has handled the pandemic, nor should it.

"How we govern our state is not something that should change based on someone's unique circumstances, like mine," Barrett said.

2. He'll get the best care and the best treatment.

You'll pay for it.
Then he'll work to deny it to you.
That's how they roll.

12. Please let this be a true karma case and he should feel the results keenly.

He's not that sick now, but I for one hope that changes and he gets the full force of the karma he is due.
