Andrew Cuomo is hoping to avoid responsibility for his deadly nursing home policy.
Critics contend his policies killed thousands of elderly New Yorkers.
Andrew Cuomo has a desperate last-ditch scheme to avoid prison time.
Just a few short weeks ago, the Democrats were wondering if they could replace Joe Biden with Andrew Cuomo, New York state’s Democratic Governor.
Now Cuomo is damaged goods just like Joe Biden and his career is in great danger.
At least a quarter of the fatalities in New York state come from nursing homes.
More than 5,400 nursing home residents died but it’s impossible to know just how many died because the list does not include nursing home residents that were transferred to the hospital.
More than half the nursing homes in New York state had at least one death. There were 22 nursing homes that had over 40 deaths, and 64 nursing homes reported between 20 to 39 deaths.
Cuomo made a policy that said “no resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to a nursing home solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”
That meant that nursing homes had no choice but to take coronavirus patients even if they were still contagious.
Experts say that the nursing home deaths were predominantly caused by Cuomo’s insane policy.
Cuomo has also been accused of hiding the extent of coronavirus deaths in nursing homes even though he’s been trying to boost his coronavirus numbers in every other way.
Now that Cuomo has been caught, he’s trying to blame God for the deaths that his law caused.
“What is justice? Who can we prosecute for those deaths? Nobody,” Cuomo said to a reporter. “Nobody. Mother nature. God. Where did this virus come from? People are going to die by this virus. That is the truth. Best hospital system on the globe, I believe we have.”
“Best doctors, best nurses who have responded like heroes, every medication, ventilators, the health system wants for nothing,” Cuomo continues. “We worked it out so we always had available beds. Nobody was deprived of a bed or medical coverage in any way.”
“You can have a situation where everyone did the right thing and everyone tried their best, and people still die,” Cuomo added. “Look, people rationalize death in different ways. I don’t think there was any logical rationale to say, they would be alive today.”
Many people tried their best. Hero doctors and nurses uprooted their lives to care for the sick in New York and still have to pay the New York state income tax.
Samaritan’s Purse set up a field hospital for free, they were doing their best.
Andrew Cuomo was not his best when he ordered nursing homes to take in nursing home patients.
It’s the stupidest policy imaginable.
What’s the point of ordering everyone to stay home when you’re going to make sure that the elderly are exposed to it anyway?
Andrew Cuomo’s career should be over and he should be legally liable for the damage he’s done.
