Join a Rally to Free New York on May 1

Gov. Cuomo plays blame game for coronavirus’ American invasion.  “All you need is one person to get on a plane. As it happened, one person got on a plane, and went from China to Europe, and then it went from Europe to New York.”  Gov. Cuomo, you are such an arrogant know-it-all, ready to blame everyone for not being as smart as you.  I want to know why you allowed the state Department of Health to require nursing homes to take back COVIC-19 patients, when you knew “this treacherous virus spreads through nursing homes like fire through dry grass.”  You knew and yet you defend and deflect the directives given by your state Department of Health.  Shame on you.

I am beginning to firmly believe that we should require those who seek to run for public office have some years in private business to understand how private business raise money and stay in business; that they just cannot raise their prices and price themselves out of business.  A lesson voters have to understand also so they stop electing people who promise them what they want and can only deliver when they raise taxes.
