She was horrific for Michigan. HORRIFIC. Presided over a huge exodus in jobs and young people. The teachers union got her elected twice and she fucked them over both times. People are dumb.

The Senate confirmed Dr. Rachel Levine as assistant health secretary, making her the first openly transgender federal official approved by the Senate.
The vote was 52 to 48, largely along party lines, with GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine joining all 50 Democrats.
The pediatrician and former Pennsylvania secretary of health helped steer the state’s response to Covid-19. She has also worked to increase awareness of equity issues that the LGBT community faces and is a professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at Penn State College of Medicine.
Dr. Levine acknowledged that there were “significant challenges” with testing, contact tracing and protective equipment, both in Pennsylvania and in other states. She said she looked forward to working with local, state and federal officials in her new post.
The hearing turned tense when Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) asked Dr. Levine if she supports hormone therapy or sex-reassignment therapy in minors with gender dysphoria.
In response to Mr. Paul’s questions, Dr. Levine said a variety of issues must be considered in treating minors. Treatments can include hormone therapy and sex-reassignment surgery. Medical treatment for gender dysphoria is rare in children.
Her confirmation Wednesday came a day after the Senate approved Vivek Murthy, President Biden’s pick for surgeon general, by a 57-to-43 vote, marking his second stint in the post, which he held from 2014 through 2017. Dr. Murthy, who was co-chairman of Mr. Biden’s Covid-19 advisory board, has said he would use his position to provide science-based guidelines for ending the coronavirus pandemic.
