Kahle: Michigan's dangerous COVID-19 nursing home policies must be changed

About one-third of the COVID-19 deaths in Michigan have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities. As the former director of a senior center in Lenawee County, this saddens me beyond words.

My sadness turns to frustration when I think about how misguided policies from Gov. Whitmer continue to put our grandparents, moms and dads, aunts and uncles, and other loved ones at risk. Even today, the governor stands by these harmful policies – vetoing a plan presented to her by the Legislature that would have ended her orders and helped protect our seniors.

Opening day for this new local business!!! 🍔 With thousands of Michigan families suffering, unemployment skyrocketing and uncertainty all around us, it was heartening for the whole community to celebrate this exciting new restaurant in Tecumseh. The cars in line for the drive thru stretched back 3 blocks or more. Oh...and the food? Amazing!😋

Rep. Kahle: Michigan’s Unemployment Insurance Agency fails Lenawee County workers and their families

I am listening to the concerns of Lenawee County residents, and by far the concern I hear about most often during this challenging time is the failure of the unemployment benefits system.

People are counting on this assistance to feed their children and pay their bills after being forced out of their jobs by the governor's orders. And when people turn to the state for help, they are too often met with automated messages that don’t answer their questions or address their concerns. The agency must do a better job.

State Rep. Bronna Kahle today called on Michigan’s Unemployment Insurance Agency to boost staffing and improve services for workers forced out of their jobs by the COVID-19 crisis.

Rep. Bronna Kahle: Let's put politics aside, fight Covid-19 smarter and move life forward

My heart breaks for the families who have lost loved ones, and I am worried for the more than 1 million Michigan residents who have lost their jobs. I’m worried for the small business owners in places like Clinton, Hudson, Manitou Beach or Morenci who don’t know if their life’s work will survive this crisis.

People are worried about their health and what the future holds. So many across our county have reached out to me over the past month for the first time — noting they have never reached out to an elected official in their life. They don’t care about Republicans or Democrats. They don’t care about resolutions and legislation. They care about their families, their children and their parents. Their livelihoods and communities.

Let's put politics aside, create a smarter strategy to fight Covid-19, and work together to move our lives forward, safely!

Rep. Kahle asks governor to work together for best interests of all Lenawee County, Michigan residents in COVID-19 response

Today I took action and approved legislative measures urging Gov. Whitmer to work together with us in the battle against #COVID_19.

Lenawee families are suffering. I have heard countless concerns about many of the governor’s unilateral decisions in the past month – all made without input from the Legislature, the elected representatives of the people. They are worried about their health and what the future holds. It breaks my heart to see the governor of our state acting like this is a political issue. This is not a political problem — this is about families, seniors, workers, and small businesses. This is about the health of people and the health of our state.

The House votes today would end the governor’s unilateral control and ensure the people of Michigan, represented by the Legislature, have a seat at the table when future decisions are made about the state’s response to COVID-19.

My heart breaks for the families who have lost loved ones, and I am worried for the more than 1 million Michigan residents who have lost their jobs. I’m worried for the small business owners in places like Clinton, Hudson, Manitou Beach or Morenci who don’t know if their life’s work will survive this crisis.

People are being told they can’t work to take care of their loved ones, even when they see a wide range of activities from real estate to car washes being done safely in almost every other state. People are worried about their health and what the future holds. So many across our county have reached out to me over the past month for the first time — noting they have never reached out to an elected official in their life. They don’t care about Republicans or Democrats. They don’t care about resolutions and legislation. They care about their families, their children and their parents. Their livelihoods and communities.

These are the voices that need to be heard – and today, I offered my hand in partnership to the governor so they would be heard. People expect the branches of their state government to work together at all times — especially during emergencies.

Rep. Bronna Kahle of Adrian today joined the Michigan House in approving measures she hopes will prompt Gov. Whitmer to work with the Legislature in response to COVID-19.

While families remain home and are supporting efforts to remain healthy, I invite you, your children, grandchildren, and friends to join me in participating in the Free2Play 30-Day Movement Challenge at ‪Free2PlayAtHome.com‬.

The 30-Day Movement Challenge is driven by the goal of keeping kids and adults moving at home, while we’re away from school or work. This remarkable program seeks to “Perspire and Inspire together!” through 30 opportunities to move (perspire) and 10 opportunities to give back (inspire) over the month of May.

It’s FREE and very easy – just log into ‪Free2PlayAtHome.com‬ and click on a “daily play”, then follow along for 30 days! I look forward to participating and sharing my experience along the way. I hope you’ll join me, and share the opportunity with your friends and loved ones, too. You don’t need to run to get moving! 😉

All children are uniquely created in the image of God and gifted with both purpose and unlimited potential. We can and must protect children and relentlessly support safe, stable families.

During the #COVID19 crisis, we’re marking the month a little differently than last year. Although not in Lansing delivering a formal resolution to declare April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in the state of Michigan, it’s more important than ever that communities take concrete actions like providing preventative resources, developing training and public awareness, and promoting policies that strengthen families.

We can and we must unite in supporting a more promising and bright future for this next generation and ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

04/26/2020

I would like to thank everyone who has contacted me over the last few weeks for help or to express an opinion – moms and dads, senior citizens, health care professionals, first responders, small business owners, educators, farmers, veterans – the list goes on. Together, we are making voices heard and helping the governor make better decisions and be more reasonable in her response to #COVID_19. We can both protect public health and allow jobs and daily activity to continue safely!

Furthermore, I was pleased to support the creation of a special bipartisan oversight committee this week to review the state’s handling of COVID-19. The Legislature is the voice of the people, and the people of this state have very serious questions and concerns.

Old state law gives the governor unique emergency powers to handle the pandemic, and the new committee will help give people a voice in the process, while holding state government to higher standards for its actions and choices.

Let’s continue to work together, make smart decisions and stay safe.

Rep. Bronna Kahle: Together, we will stop Covid-19

We need to change our #Covid_19 strategy in Michigan and start with a rolling restart of our economy, based on jobs and activities that are safe, and in regions where the risk is low. We can do this now using common sense and a data-driven approach.

We will get through this difficult time together. We will rebuild. We will be even stronger than ever. But we must act now. Because it will take much longer to reopen the economy than it took the governor to shut it down. 1.2 million workers in Michigan have had their jobs taken away and many can't even get unemployment benifits to survive. It doesnt have to be this way. People want to recieve a paycheck over an unemployment check.

Let's help those who are stuggling get back on their feet and back to work now so they can provide for themselves and their family.

The #RoadmapToRecovery strategy calls for a rolling restart of Michigan’s economy based on jobs and activities that are safe and in regions where the risk is low.

This common sense and data-driven approach could allow Lenawee County to safely move toward a limited reopening and return to normalcy.

Millions in Michigan are struggling to make ends meet and provide for themselves and their families. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

This is a challenging and stressful time but we are going to beat this. I am focused and working for a smarter approach to Covid-19 to ensure better days are ahead for all of us!

04/20/2020

Today I helped unveil a #RoadmapToRecovery for Lenawee County and the entire state of Michigan. This strategy calls for a rolling restart of Michigan’s economy based on region of the state, recognizing COVID-19 prevalence and risk varies by county.

This approach could allow Lenawee County to safely move toward a limited reopening and return to normalcy more quickly than areas harder hit by coronavirus, such as metro Detroit.

This has been a challenging, stressful time for all of us. COVID-19 has tragically claimed lives and upended livelihoods. But as strategies have helped flatten the curve and lower the caseload in many areas of our state, I am thankful for the opportunity to look ahead to better days.

This roadmap to recovery was presented to Gov. Whitmer, and I am hopeful she will work with us to make it a reality. A one-size-fits-all approach simply doesn’t work for the majority of Michigan. A common-sense, data-driven regional approach would give our families, friends and neighbors some much-needed hope for the future.

Rep. Kahle announces white ribbon campaign to support, honor medical professionals and first responders fighting COVID-19

I am excited to announce a campaign to #Honor and support the Lenawee County #HealthCare workers and #FirstResponders on the front lines of the fight against #COVID_19!

Let me know about local doctors, nurses, paramedics, hospital workers, police, firefighters and others who have been working to keep the community safe during the pandemic so they may be honored with a special state tribute.

It’s so important to honor these dedicated, selfless workers who are on the front lines to protect us. A tribute from the State of Michigan is just one way to let them know that they are truly appreciated for their service to our community, state and country!

Please send the name, occupation and contact information of those working to keep our community healthy to:

Couldn’t present these in person, but deeply grateful to our #LenaweeHeroes, nonetheless!

911 dispatchers are the first people you talk to when you call with a crisis. They’re our guiding angels in an emergency who make sure that the right responders get to the scene as fast as possible and help people in crisis.

Seven days ago today, the governor issued her new, very restrictive stay home order. Since then, I’ve heard from countless people expressing frustration and deep concern. While the health and safety of the people of our state are paramount, the impact these new orders are having on our lives, our jobs, and our freedoms is unprecedented. Amid crushing job losses, family turmoil, and uncertainty, I am asking for practicality and common sense in Michigan’s stay home order. Stopping the spread of the virus is a must, but Michigan can be smarter about our approach and start thinking about what activities are safe vs. unsafe. Matching federal best practices is one way to do this.

I am working hard to be our voice in Lansing and advocate for common sense practices, as we all seek to follow the recommended CDC guidelines for distancing and safe habits.

Please consider calling the governor’s constituent services phone line at 517-335-7858 to share how her decisions are impacting you and others across Lenawee County.

Meet the team that is listening to you and working hard for the people of Lenawee County. Over the past several weeks, I’ve heard from hundreds, if not thousands, of families, seniors, workers, and small business owners across our communities that are frustrated and scared. THANK YOU for reaching out to me—your voice matters and I am on your side! And thank you, Tara & Jake—the dream team that never stops working hard for Lenawee.

Rep. Kahle: Our mission must be eradicating COVID-19 while keeping people safe and preparing for return to normalcy

I will continue working with the governor because I agree we must do all we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health of our families, friends and neighbors in Lenawee County and the entire state. But I am concerned some of the items included in the governor’s new order will prolong hardships on residents without helping fulfill that mission.

There are ways we can safely restart parts of the economy while keeping people safe from coronavirus. A good start would be looking at jobs and activities through the lens of ‘safe or unsafe’ rather than bogging down in debates about ‘essential vs. non-essential.’

Lenawee residents are counting on us to make decisions that protect public health and also move us toward a return to normalcy and better days ahead. These goals are not mutually exclusive.

Rep. Bronna Kahle today urged the governor to reconsider some aspects of her new expanded COVID-19 ‘stay at home’ order – saying changes could be made to continue protecting public health without forcing even more Michiganders out of work.

We are backing the House & Senate Bronna! GET THE PETITION SIGNED! Tomorrow from 11am to 1pm I will be at Randy's Roadside Bar-b-que at 7302 US 12. Onsted. Mi. Collecting signatures to repeal the 1945 act that allows our Governor to have the only say in these State of Emergencies & lock downs. We need to have this gone so our House & Senate have say in these orders, as it should be. Michigan needs checks & balances to protect the Michigan people. No Governor Republic or Democrat should ever have the only power in these decisions. Come out & see me. Huge thanks to Randy Bahlau & Amy S. Bahlau Bahlau for allowing me their place of business for a signing station. Remember you must be a registered voter!
F*ck you and the chip you road in on. How about you put a chip up your c*nt? Good luck with that.
WHY?
Our state and federal government need to place the education of our youth in a place of higher importance! Education seems to be the first place to get hit with cuts, like they feel it's expendable, a luxury as opposed to a need, optional, an extra instead of essential..... 😢🥺 Yet, they continue to place more demands and expectations on education with fewer resources... 🥺 Our children in Michigan, in the United States should be our priority! Their education and well being should be the first thing funded and the last thing cut!
I have tried Three times to use your comments link online, and had all three messages dumped when it wouldn't allow me to send the message out to you. So here is my fourth try: I have spent well over two hours on a google search to determine if U.S. Code Title 18, Section 242 has been repealed or modified. After 35 pages of web sites it seems apparent to me, that the law still stands. The Law reads: Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. Obviously, this makes the current law being cited by Governor Whitmer, this 1945 emergency declaration authority Clearly unconstitutional. She has violated this law willfully and spitefully. I think this law should be cited in the upcoming Republican suit, and she should be subject to arrest and imprisonment for her blatant crimes against Michigan residents. I am planning on coming to Lansing tomorrow, for the planned protest and wonder if we can meet to discuss this issue and the Lockdown foolishness in general? Please give me a call, at (563) 508-7725 Blissfield Santa, Russell Quinton [email protected]
Bronna, I appreciate what you are doing. the thing I want all that represent me to understand is that I am in charge of my health and well being. You are in charge of protecting my freedoms, rights, and liberties as subscribed in the US Constituon . In the name of compassion in the interim those may be impeded forever. Not acceptable
Now that it appears that we are developing a new normal,I ask once again not to forget about HB4006 still in your committee. I WILL NEVER FORGET!!
If this shouldn't be on your facebook, please delete. Hi, Bronna, I met you last November at the DAR Famous Ladies Tea at the Croswell Tea House. I want you to be aware of a situation that is happening at the Gus Harrison Prison here in Adrian. My daughter is a RN at the prison. Last Tuesday, the state transferred 30+ prisoners in to 6 Block that isn't attached to any other buildings at the prison. It was used for Level 1 prisoners who were not considered dangerous. The state is calling it a Step Down for prisoners who are supposedly recovering from the virus. There are no cells and it is completely open for them to move all around in the building. When they were transferred, it was a complete surprise to the personnel as the building was empty and had to be quickly readied for the prisoners who were being transferred that day. This week (on think on Tuesday) another group was transferred to the Step Down and yesterday (Thursday) 50+ were transferred along with more today, making the building full with a total of 110 prisoners. They range from Level 1 to Level 3/4 who are murderers and violent men. There are only 3 officers in the building with the one nurse. She is working some 16 hour days because the state is taking nurses and putting them in Jackson with the positive prisoners and now they are returning the nurses sent and sending different nurses to Jackson. They are already short staffed as it is. The state had an article in the Daily Telegram on Wed or Thurs that said the prisoners transferred to the Step Down did not test positive anymore. But today, there are several that are testing positive. Is there anything that you can do? I'm sure you are very busy with this pandemic going on, but this is serious and life threatening for so many at the prison. Thank you so much, Maxine Smith
Hi Bronna! I am wondering why I have to keep going on the unemployment website and re-opening my unemployment claim? I go to do the check-in and find an error message that I have to re-open my claim. I then have to go through the process of entering my employers FEIN and EAN numbers and my direct deposit information. Am I missing out on any payments this way? So far I have been fortunate and haven't really had issues getting on the website, but when I go on to double check and make sure everything is ok, I find I have been closed out. Thanks for all you do! Sandi
After seeing hundreds of Trump supporters in Lansing yesterday with NO face masks is reason enough. So you think having low wage earners having to work and put their life on the line so you can buy vegetables to plant in the snow. We can wait a few weeks.
In response to Governor Whitmer’s additional restrictions on We The People of the State of Michigan in These United States if America. I am a free American Michigan Citizen. The President nor any majority of The People who are also free Citizens, have stated that growing my own food, catching my own fish, or safe distance socializing on Easter Sunday or checking on my children or my parents is a danger to anyone. There are times when the governing body is wrong and The People simply need not comply. Governor Whitmer took a pen and wrote on a piece of paper something that a majority of We The People completely disagree with and clearly see through. So tomorrow I will be fishing to feed my family. I will check on one of my moms on my way home to be sure she had what she needs. I will practice safe distance and proper hygiene. Thank you to all in our State Government who voted against these measures. We appreciate you for standing up for us. But it’s time The People show this Governor what Democracy LOOKS like. Posting does nothing. Phone calls a joke. Digital communications with this Governing body is non existent. If you own a garden center, lawn care store, have plants and seed for sale. Open up. Put in the safety requirements as best you can. Your customers either follow the rules or are removed from the store. Everyone your sending one person to the store because this is safe. Keep doing this for a little while longer as it’s the right thing to do until we have more answers about this virus. But Stop shopping ALL big box stores when you can. If they won’t sell you seeds, garden products, home repair products, etc. and all they will sell you are the same necessities your local grocer has. Then support that local grocer, lawn and garden store, garden center, etc. Small businesses can control the flow if customers more easily than a big box store can simply because of the square footage difference. DO NOT OVER BUY PLEASE. Get what you need for a few days to a week. There’s enough for everyone. There are no shortages as of yet. If you keep overbuying you will cause shortages. Be safe Shop smart! We know what’s best for ourselves and our families. We do not need nor will we accept being ordered to believe that this Governor knows what’s best for us all via the swipe of her pen.
