Apparently, Tim Walz’s policies are killing Minnesotans. This information is (just coincidentally) coming to light after the election. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, aka MDH, “Previously unseen costs of the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated lockdowns are coming to light. Drug overdose deaths increased 31% during the first half of 2020 compared to the first half of 2019, according to new data released by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).”

DFL legislators voted each month in special session to keep Gov. Tim Walz’s Peacetime Emergency Powers intact. Had this drug overdose death information been reported by Tim Walz’s MDH, public pressure would’ve built to fix this crisis.

MDH Commissioner Jan Malcolm tried papering over the problem, saying “Deaths due to overdoses are preventable even amid all the troubles we’ve had this year. We need to work together to find ways to better support those suffering from substance use disorders, but it is important to know that there are resources available and those resources can still be accessed safely even with COVID-19 restrictions in place.”

What’s required most of all is stop the DFL’s lockdowns. They don’t work. They fix one problem while creating other problems. This graphic says it all:

Tim Walz and the DFL need to be fired. The DFL’s COVID-19 solutions have failed. The information that MDH has put out has been misleading at best. The DFL has kept Gov. Walz’s Peacetime Emergency Powers intact, thereby ensuring that he’d have more opportunities to exercise unilateral decision-making. That’s how we got into this position.
