(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – During the height of the COVID charade in 2020, several Democratic governors and their trusty health advisers, made the decision to enact horrible and deadly policies that resulted in thousands of nursing home deaths.
Governors Andrew Cuomo (NY), Tom Wolf (PA) and Phil Murphy (NJ) all implemented policies (screenshots here, here, here, and here) that allowed sick COVID-positive patients to be admitted into nursing homes because why wouldn’t we want to put sick, contagious people in nursing homes where the most COVID-vulnerable population resides?
Not only did disgraced former Governor partake in this disastrous practice but then he notoriously proceeded to outright lie about the number of nursing home deaths. Cuomo, Wolf and Murphy set out to pad the death toll numbers and then they lied about it.
They all pretended as if it was really no big deal that they put their stamp of approval on these deadly policies that senselessly and needlessly killed thousands of elderly individuals.
Turns out they weren’t alone. According to Just the News, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been accused of not only sending sick COVID patients into nursing homes but also lying about the number of deaths that occurred as a result.
Michigan state Auditor General Doug Ringler identified 8,061 COVID related deaths in long-term care facilities which revealed a difference of more than 2,000 deaths when compared to Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services total, which was 5,675, as of July 2, 2021.
This represents a 42% undercounting of deaths in nursing homes in Michigan.
In a written response to Ringler’s probe, MDHHS Director Elizabeth Hertel said that the report’s conclusions were “misleading” and that almost half of the undercounting was due to incorrect reporting by facilities.
Hertel contested 1,511 of the 2,386 deaths added by the report claiming they were determined using unreliable data.
“[W]e do not believe you have done a ‘proper accounting of all long-term care facility deaths’ as your letter suggests,” Hertel wrote to Ringler.
Ringler’s office, however, maintains they did, in fact, use reliable data and directly corroborated at least 85% of the 1,511 in question.
Surely, Whitmer, just like Cuomo, would have wanted to lie and cover-up just how bad and deadly her policy decision to admit COVID patients into nursing homes truly was.
Whitmer didn’t want the truth to come out. She was already taking enough heat for being one of the most tyrannical governors in the US in response to the COVID charade.
It was clear, however, to Republican State Rep. Steven Johnson that Whitmer wasn’t being totally honest about the number of deaths from long-term care facilities so he requested the office of the auditor general to conduct an investigation.
Johnson told Detroit’s WXYZ-TV his goal was accountability.
“These are long-term care facilities that were required under Gov. Whitmer’s policies to accept COVID positive patients, and because of that, our most vulnerable residents were put at risk,” he said.
“That’s something that never should have happened and there needs to be accountability on this.”
Michigan Freedom Fund, an organization dedicated to fighting for conservative policies in the state, slammed Whitmer after the report came out.
“Gretchen Whitmer’s decision to import COVID-19 into nursing homes and long-term care facilities was unscientific, and it was deadly,” the organization said in a statement according to Just the News.
No legal action has been taken and there likely never will be. Hopefully her public image has been tarnished enough, however, that her reelection campaign this year will fail.
A terrible day for thousands of families. In a letter to @SteveScalise, @TheJusticeDept wrote that they were dropping the nursing home investigations in all states including New York. There will be no justice for our loved ones, and it feels like we’ve lost them all over again. pic.twitter.com/DV7uNRMr9D
