For weeks New York’s governor urgently appealed for medical volunteers amid a “staggering” number of coronavirus deaths.
This week Cuomo renewed his call for volunteers as the state’s death toll climbed by more than 250 people in a day to a total of over 1,200, most of them in the Big Apple.
“Please come help us in New York now. We’ve lost over 1,000 New Yorkers. To me, we’re beyond staggering already. We’ve reached staggering.”
Even before the Cuomo’s latest appeal, his previous calls were answered by some 80,000 former nurses, doctors, and other professionals who risked their lives coming to NYC to volunteer.
In between Cuomo thanking all those that risked their lives answering the his call for help… Cuomo slipped in that New York will now be taxing them up the wazoo for their efforts.
Democrats: Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste
Months before the birth of the COVID-19 virus, New York State already had a 6 Billion dollar shortfall in their 2020-21 budget, and NYC was on the verge of having to declare bankruptcy.
But after years of unfunded pensions, runaway Medicaid expenses, and imbecilic programs that were doomed to fail from the start, but guarantee to waste millions of dollars.
The coronavirus pandemic monster smiled upon New York State’s irresponsible Democratic leaders.
The moment the Coronavirus pandemic started sweeping across America. The Democrats created a new fiscally responsible strategy.
Hold American first responders, and health-care workers hostage to get President Trump and American taxpayers to bail them out.
On Wednesday, NYC’s moronic Mayor Bill De Blasio appeared on CNN threatening that he will have to start laying off essential first responders, and health care workers if Trump doesn’t bail out the Big Apple with federal stimulus funds to fill budget gaps not caused by his years of financial idiocy but by the *cough* *cough* coronavirus pandemic.
Last month Cuomo sent a letter to New York Congressmen demanding they secure no less than 15 Billion dollars as a result of the *cough* *cough* Coronavirus pandemic, and if Trump wouldn’t bail out their State, Cuomo threatened:
New York State has no option but to make reductions to critically needed state spending.
Of course, Cuomo didn’t mention what he would cut. But I assure you it won’t be the $3 Billion Restore Mother Nature Bond Act the Democrats have in their 2021 budget:
The Budget authorizes the creation of a Bond Act to fund critical environmental restoration and climate mitigation projects in every corner of the state to ensure New York is able to adapt to the intensifying impacts of climate change.
The Mother Nature Act also funds up to $700 million in projects to fight climate change, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal‘ green buildings.
Nor will Cuomo and the Democrats cut their ‘because it worked so well in California,‘ calls for the 2020-21 budget to spend millions of dollars on…wait for it…
“Developing an Innovative Strategy to Build High-Speed Rail in New York.”
Instead of Cuomo cutting Billions of wasted dollars from the Democrats bloated $177 Billion 2020-21 state budget.
And God forbid New York City cuts a single penny from their ‘Pig with Lipstick’ 2020 budget, which is larger than that OF 42 STATES!
Instead, Democrats went with threatening the livelihood of first-responders, and health-care workers, and taxing those that volunteered to risk their lives to help New Yorkers survive the pandemic.
