Extra Pesos in my Pocket (while at the Beach)

I would think that every executive everywhere has special powers in an emergency. So what constitutes an emergency? Well apparently, according to the republican controlled Michigan legislature, that means virtually everything. For the last twenty years or so, they've declared almost every legislative proposal an emergency and thus bypassed debate for quick passage and implementation. Sometimes in the middle of the night. Like the hideous and extremely anti-democratic Emergency Manager law. And now they want to strip away Whitmer's sensible, life-saving, measures in a pandemic, which really is an emergency.

Emergency powers for me but not for thee.
