Former Republican Governor of New York State, George Pataki, is now blasting his successor Andrew Cuomo for a policy which may have lead to thousands of Coronavirus deaths in nursing homes throughout the state.

As Townhall reports:

George Pataki, who governed New York from 1995 to 2006, said what happened in New York nursing homes is a “disgrace.”

“Gov. Cuomo’s handling of the nursing homes has been a disaster,” Pataki told the New York Post. “Thousands of people’s lives might not have been lost except for these tragic policies.”

In a conversation with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum, the two wondered why Cuomo didn’t take advantage of either the Javits Center, which had been turned into a temporary COVID-19 hospital, or the USNS Comfort, which President Trump personally sent off to New York City from Norfolk, Virginia.

“New York’s policies with nursing homes is incomprehensible,” he told MacCallum. “The Comfort had hundreds of beds waiting to take coronavirus-positive patients,” Pataki said. “In the nursing homes, where the weakest of the aged [and] the most vulnerable were put together, [they] were required to take corona positive patients. It is an incomprehensible policy, and I think someone should look into it.”

The former Governor is now calling for an official investigation into Cuomo’s potentially lethal decision, which, if carried through, may permanently alter the American people’s view of Cuomo.

Looks to me like Cuomo with his arrogant, disobedient brother were just showing their desire to get rid of old people. I see. IF he had taken advantage of the ship and the offers of help, he would have been giving Trump credit for actions that saved lives. Sure wouldn’t want to do that.
IT IS ALL ABOUT POLITICS. And don’t expect any Cuomo to obey quarantine orders. They get to do whatever they want.

Anyone with a brain????? Why do you suppose that THE hotspot of the entire nation is NEW YORK STATE? That is not a coincidence. That is not an accident. That is because of who is in charge. And where are the other HOT SPOTS???? Chicago? Michigan? Houston and Dallas in Texas. We can’t figure out what they did to make their cities SICKER than the rest of the state. BUT THEY ARE.

Now I am sure that some who read this article would say that anyone could have done a better job than the Mayor or Governor of New York, but everyone has an opinion and like butts not all are correct, now when you get a load of bricks dumped on you it is never the right brick that tyou remove first according to some, especially if it is from the opposing party.

I believe a larger load of bricks were dumped on President Trump, his major fault was relying on a medical advisor with ties to China and monetary ties to development of a vaccine. How much slack are you willing to cut him????

I agree 100%, George. Assuming Fauci is the “medical advisor” you’re referring to, I’m with you there, too! I think his “predictions” have been guesswork in a lot of cases — which is the only thing statistics and data really support in the short-term — have contributed to the hysteria and fear-mongering that have seen this roll out of control since day one! And I think President Trump needs better and more trustworthy advisors to help him figure out who to listen to and who to ignore. There are just way too many devious people out there who speak out of both sides of their mouths.

And you could’ve done better. At least he listened until he found out Fauci was a shill for the left instead of going off on his own. It was Obozo who put this trash in business in the first place. Grow up.

That is just about the most lame excuse I have heard for Democrat failure. But you have proven that you are a college aged kid getting paid by Soros. And yes, you failed.

I’m concerned for my own dad in my state. Why do they allow covid cases to be admitted or to returned to the nursing homes from the outpatient setting before they test negative?

To eliminate the cost of taking care of the seniors. Period. There is no other viable explanation. They had the medical ship the Comfort. They had the facility Franklin Graham set-up and more facilities the military set-up that were Never Used.

Simply because it was Trump who suggested using them and made them available. Anyone who HATES someone so bad as to allow people to die or suffer needs to be ELIMINATED!!!

“There was a Democrat in the hospital who was COVID-19 positive. Everyday he prayed with all of his might that God would spare him – that he would survive and go home. Then the doctors started treating him with hydroxychloroquine. The Democrat immediately started praying with all of his might that he would die – so he could prove Trump wrong.” Dem Logic 101

AND they didn’t want to give Trump credit for helping. To me, they committed murder.
