(Liberty Bell) – New York Assembly member Ron Kim, a dedicated Democrat, along with Jessica Ramos, also a die-hard Democrat, held a protest rally on Wednesday outside City Hall where they demonstrated that they have totally flipped on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and are now calling for charges to be brought against him for covering up the true number of COVID-related nursing home deaths that happened in his state.
According to Gateway Pundit, Kim was joined by a number of elected officials, advocates, and some of the family members of seniors who passed away due to the incredibly foolish and stupid policy put in place by the Cuomo administration that put coronavirus positive patients in nursing home facilities with those who are most susceptible to complications from the illness.
People have had enough of the blatant arrogance of Cuomo who had the audacity to act like he did a good job handling the COVID-19 pandemic in his state, despite the thousands upon thousands of deaths in nursing homes and New York becoming the center of the pandemic. Victims want justice.
FOX News meteorologist Janice Dean was one of the speakers at the rally. Dean’s in-laws passed away due to the coronavirus after they caught it in a New York nursing home. Dean has since been leading the charge against Cuomo and his administration, demanding they be held accountable for the lies they’ve told to New York citizens.
The folks at GP actually wrote up a report back in May of last year noting that Cuomo, along with Health Commissioner Howard Zucker, MD and Executive Deputy Commissioner Sally Dreslin are all three responsible for the decisions and actions that led to thousands of people dying in the state of New York.
Yaacov Apelbaum from the Illustrated Primer stated that these particular politicians are the ones responsible for these nursing home deaths which came about as the direct result of crazy, nonsensical directives that were related to the coronavirus.
One of the directives that Apelbaum pointed out says, “During this global health emergency, all NHs [nursing homes] must comply with the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals to NHs.”
And another one says, “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”
Why in the world would Cuomo and his pals put these directives in place knowing full well that elderly individuals are the ones who are most likely to suffer death at the hands of the coronavirus? The simple answer is money.
“In 2018, as Governor Andrew Cuomo faced a challenge to his reelection bid in the New York State Democratic primary, he got a last minute $1m cash infusion from the General New York Hospital Association (GNYHA)—a powerful NY healthcare industry group. On April 2, 2020, he repaid the favor when he quietly signed legislation shielding hospital and nursing home executives from any lawsuits stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. The clauses, inserted into the annual budget bill by Cuomo, gave blanket immunity protections for healthcare industry executive and administrators, the same individuals and institutions that have made a fortune moving sick Covid-19 patients to nursing homes,” GP reported back in May of last year.
The GNYHA donated a whopping $3 million to Democrats in the 2018 election cycle. Cuomo and his state party committee was given about $2.3 million of this cash from various hospitals and nursing home industry donors. He then scratched their backs in return with the COVID directive by forcing positive patients back in the nursing homes.
The directive provided a very large increase in revenues to the organizations that were associated with the GNYHA who were given quite a bit of cash for COVID patients. Cuomo has blood on his hands. He essentially killed people for the sake of lining his pockets and the pockets of others for the sake of political power and favors.
It doesn’t really get more despicable than this, does it?
Cuomo deserves to be criminally charged and locked away for the remainder of his life.
