Andrew Cuomo is the worst thing to happen to the state of New York since it became a state. His overreaction to the coronavirus has nearly destroyed the state. He has drummed up the hype that his state is going to die so he shut everything down.
He then admitted that he overreacted and should not have shut down everything. And now he sabotaged the elderly by sticking sick viral patients in the nursing homes hoping to infect them since he believed that they were going to die anyway.
And now it seems that Cuomo is lying to the public by stating that his state has been following President Trump’s guidance related to the coronavirus. Part of that adherence was the policy on how to admit a viral patient to a nursing home.
Cuomo has been found to purposely doctor his numbers by pushing people into homes that should not have been there. He ordered homes to take COVID-19 patients even if they could not care for them. So, in a way, he pushed the death numbers up by intentionally infecting people.
Seema Verma is the Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services stated, “Under no circumstances should a hospital discharge a patient to a nursing home that’s not prepared to take care of those patients’ needs. The federal guidelines are absolutely clear about this.”
Early on these centers did not have to accept the patients, but Cuomo secretly and silently changed the rules and ordered the nursing homes to take patients. He has violated every rule of compassion by intentionally infecting people.
When Cuomo changed the rules the numbers in the nursing homes spiked it was at the same time he changed the rules. He lies to people as he tries to push off criticism from people by stating that nursing homes “should admit any individuals they normally admit to their facility, including individuals from hospitals where a case of COVID-19 was/is present.” Except that he changed the rules. He is hiding the truth that he changed everything.
Cuomo went on to state that “What New York did was follow what the Republican administration said to do. That’s not my attempt to politicize it. It’s my attempt to depoliticize it. So don’t criticize the state for following the president’s policy.”
No one is criticizing the state, they are going after Cuomo because he is lying to people and trying to pass the blame off on the president.
Verma is not letting Cuomo get away with falsifying records and lying to people by stating “Yes, the nursing homes will have COVID positive people … if they are prepared to handle the unique needs of that patient. Anytime you discharge a patent from the hospital it is the responsibility of the hospital to make sure that the patient is safe when they discharge them.”
Cuomo changed things so his state would look bad compared to other states around the nation. Knowing that Cuomo changed things it is easy to see his deception in his statement “In general, you look at how New York did, we’re in Washington, you look how New York did on nursing homes vis-a-vis the nation, we did better than 33 states in the nation, per capita on nursing homes.”
New York is the only state that has a huge spike in coronavirus outbreaks in nursing homes. This is directly related to Cuomo’s deceptive attempt to kill off the elderly in his state.
The regulations that President Trump put into effect were clearly in place to protect people. One of the very first things he did was shut down nursing homes to protect the vulnerable from the virus. Cuomo did the opposite and opened up the homes to put them all at risk.
President Trump took the information he had and acted in such a way as to keep America great. The virus left unchecked would have destroyed the nation. But the wisdom of the president to regulate things the way he did protect the livelihood of every single person in the country. He continues to put America first and to put himself last.
