Senator Mark E. Huizenga of the 30th District offered the following invocation:

Merciful Father, we come confessing. You gave us the example of Christ who made Himself nothing, humbling Himself for our sake. But we often operate from a position of selfish ambition and conceit, lacking the humility to count others as more significant than ourselves. We look to our own interests and not to the interests of others. O Lord, give us the mind of Christ葉hat in humble service we may someday share in His exaltation. May we know what it is to be emptied of self and to wholly love. Through the power of our ascended Lord, by whom we live and move and have our being, we pray. Amen.

 

The President, Lieutenant Governor Gilchrist, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Statements

 

 

Senator Nesbitt asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Nesbitt痴 statement is as follows:

Many of us will leave this chamber today to prepare for Halloween festivities in our neighborhoods and communities. We値l help our kids dress up in their costumes, pass out candy, and some of us may even muster up the courage to visit a haunted house. While the treats will be plentiful tonight, unfortunately, Mr. President, the people of Michigan appear to be the ones who have been tricked.

Last November, we were all sent here to do a job, and the message from Michigan voters was clear: Work together to move Michigan forward. Unfortunately, the very slim Democratic majorities have taken a tremendous opportunity to truly govern in the sensible middle and squandered it away, choosing to march lockstep with a Governor more concerned about pursuing national ambitions and failed leftwing ideology that their base loves. That was made clear from the beginning, as the first billthe very first bill they jammed through this legislative chamber back in January and passed along partisan party lines謡as an order from the Biden White House to move up the presidential primary. And it痴 the reason the majority will likely be ending session historically early next week, so it can go into effect. It all could have been avoided. There was a sensible ground for compromise, but Democrats decided to follow the orders of the Democratic National Committee, disenfranchising the voting rights of millions of Michiganders, and starting their holiday break early.

But this spooky story doesn稚 end there, Mr. President. Over the next several months, Democrats did what Democrats always do when they have power. They gave back to their special interests. They gave back to their union bosses, the trial lawyers, and those determined to turn our society into a cultural progressive dystopia. We watched as Governor Whitmer and the Democrats concocted a scheme to try to take away a permanent income tax cut from Michigan families. When Republicans stopped them, they employed the Attorney General next to do their bidding with a plan that will raise income taxes next year by $800 million. And their ghastly motives became quite clear as the Governor and her majorities decided that instead of Michigan families keeping their tax dollars, their money would be better off in the hands of profitable multinational corporations, even those closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party.

Democrats continued their destructive policies as they made Michigan the first right-to-work state in 65 years to repeal the law that protected the rights of all workers whether they choose to join a union or not to join a union. They reinstituted inflated wages on government construction projects, making new schools and road projects more expensive to build, all to benefit their big union boss backers. Then they proposed a $1.5 billion tax increase on small businesses, nonprofits, and Michigan workers, collected and managed by a UIA-style bureaucracy ripe for fraud and abuse. Mr. President, with Governor Whitmer and Lansing Democrats showing how unserious they are about building our economy, I fear the ghost of the Granholm administration has returned to bring us another lost decade. What could be more haunting?

And finally, who could forget the monstrosity that was adopted on a purely partisan vote just last week here in the Senate? An energy proposal that put far-left environmentalists ahead of Michigan workers, which will increase energy rates of struggling Michigan families while making energy less reliable here in the state of Michigan.

Yes, Mr. President, like the short-sighted intentions of Dr. Frankenstein, the unintended consequences of the majority痴 poorly constructed science experiment will only lead to failure and hardship here in Michigan. What happens when the middle class blue collar workers get fired because of these Green New Deal policies? Don稚 worry, don稚 worry. Governor Whitmer will just create another bloated bureaucracy to help you find a new job working on electric vehicles they池e going to force everyone to buy. And so, as Lansing Democrats look to scurry out of town early this year, it is truly frightening to think what has transpired in this chamber the past 10 months, but nothing is more chilling than devastating effects the majority痴 decisions will have on Michigan families, farmers, seniors, and small business owners in the coming years ahead. There can be no mistake who is responsible for the economic fallout that is inevitably yet to come. Lansing Democrats chose to go it alone, and the people of Michigan, who elected us to work together, will remember that.
