D.C. Democrats Continue to Push Through Radical Agenda
With all the attention statewide focused on Governor Cuomo, his six sexual harassment claims, and pending federal investigation into nursing home death coverups, it is easy to lose track of all the bad Bills that Congress is passing in Washington, DC.
This week they passed the $1.9 trillion “COVID-19 relief” Bill that had little to do with relief and more to do with giving money, that we do not have, away to foreign nations and spending on projects that have nothing to do with giving people and businesses the aide they need.
Every member of our delegation, Elise Stefanik, Lee Zeldin, John Katko, Nicole Malliotakis, Tom Reed, Andrew Garbarino, Claudia Tenney and Chris Jacobs all voted NO for the new round of stimulus that will cost each individual American over $5,000 to pay for.
Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi also continued their assault on the 2nd Amendment with the passage of H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021”, and H.R. 1446, the “Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021”.
While all three bills passed the House this week, we are proud of the members of our delegation who voted NO.
I thank them all for their level-headed, common sense approach to all the legislation they voted on this week. Having had many discussions with the Congress members from NY, I can tell you they were on the right side of these votes from the start.
Cuomo’s Woes Continue
There have been no good days for Governor Cuomo the last few weeks, and it does not appear any are on the horizon.
Cuomo was accused by a 6th woman this week; this time of sexual assault in the private residence of the Governor’s mansion. It has been referred to the local police to begin a probe into the Governor, potentially leading to a criminal investigation. If police choose to find the woman’s claims credible, Cuomo will officially be under investigation by two separate law enforcement entities at both the state and federal level.
On the Albany front, the entire Republican conference, and a growing number of Democrats, including leadership, have called on the Governor to resign. With more than half of the combined State Legislature having moved towards his resignation or impeachment, it is clear he has lost all ability to Govern and lead a legislative body.
When you have lost Albany, you have lost the people. New York needs a functional, working Government. Nearly a year ago, Andrew Cuomo prioritized a book deal, with a seven-figure advancement, over the health of New Yorker’s. While nursing home deaths piled up, and field hospitals remained empty, Cuomo was working on his fictional account of what a great leader he is.
His book is an egregious attack on our intelligence and disgusting show of self-promotion. We knew it then, and thankfully the entire world knows it now.
Conservative Candidate Petitions
We have a few more days remaining in this year’s petitioning cycle. If you have not yet signed a petition for your local Conservative Party candidate, please contact your local leadership, or someone you know who is involved with the party, to sign and get our candidates on the ballot.
A complete list of leadership and their contacts can be found here, or call the State Headquarters at 718-921-2158.
