New York’s Governor Cuomo Tries To Blame Trump For Shortages, But Look What We Found … NYC Cut 20,000 Hospital Beds In Last 20 Years

What a liberal HACK!

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is proving to be quite the self-aggrandizing whiner who is happy to place the blame for his state’s shortages everywhere but where it belongs.

That’s probably why progressives love him.

Progressives demand cradle-to-grave protections from any responsibility for their own needs. Disney warned us about in their early cartoons:

Cuomo’s constant criticism of President Trump has been scoring points with progressives who are looking for a presidential challenger other than the cognitively impaired Joe Biden. To progressives, Cuomo’s whining is music to their ears.

Gov. Cuomo, with an immediate need for 400 ventilators, cried to reporters that he needed 30,000 ventilators.

Gov. Cuomo: FEMA says they’re sending 400 ventilators. Really? What am I going to do with 400 ventilators when I need 30,000? You pick the 26,000 people who are going to die because you only sent 400 ventilators!

It was reported earlier that in 2015, Cuomo’s spending priorities – likely to fund the cost of the sanctuary policies that he supported – caused him to ignore the New York State Department of Health’s call for building a stockpile of 16,000 ventilators.

Now we learn that New York slashed a staggering 20,000 hospital beds over the last 20 years. Cuomo has been the state’s governor since January 2011.

(New York Post) New York has lost a staggering 20,000 hospital beds over the last two decades to budget cuts and insurance overhauls, complicating local and state efforts to battle the coronavirus, according to records and experts.

The Empire State had 73,931 licensed hospital beds in 2000 before years of cuts and closures shrank the number to just 53,000 in 2020, according to records obtained by the New York State Nurses Association from the state Health Department and stats provided by officials.

What is Cuomo whining about now?

Gov. Cuomo: “Right now, in New York specifically, the rate of the curve suggests that in 45 days we could have up to an input of people who need 110,000 beds that compares to our current capacity of 53,000 beds, 37,000 ICU units, ventilators, which compares to a capacity currently of 3,000 ventilators…”

All of this plays well with the self-entitled class who would rather trash Trump than bother to understand their local government and their governor’s responsibility…

The report the article refers from 2015:
“The State’s current approach to stockpiling a limited number of ventilators balances the need to prepare for a potential pandemic against the need to maintain adequate funding for current and ongoing health care expenses,” the report states. “Furthermore, severe staffing shortages are anticipated, and purchasing additional ventilators beyond a threshold will not save additional lives, because there will not be a sufficient number of trained staff to operate them.”

If you expect Cuomo to have the foresight to prepare for a Spanish Flu level pandemic 5 years ago that was deemed unnecessary in the report, then what are your thoughts about these official statements by the President based on intel briefings mere weeks ago.
2/26 We’re going down, not up. We’re going very substantially down, not up.
2/27 It's going to disappear. One day it's like a miracle, it will disappear.
3/6 Anybody that needs a test can have a test.

Politicians come in all sizes and flavors, Gov. Cuomo like Trump and most government leaders today 3/31/2020 is trying to protect and save their citizenry, CYA and trying to lower the anxiety and panic levels.

In 20/20 hindsight all have made significant blunders, if they can stop sniping at each other and focus on the problems we would all feel better. Trump's constant braggadocio is over the top, he's needs a Xanax; he's done a good job of delegating but a poor one of comforting the country.

Cuomo is comforting but at the same time transmitting anxiety and despair in portions of every news conference and he's intentionally competing with Trump and the caustic nature of his remarks at times rivals that of Trump on steroids. They should both take a 'Chill Pill' and return to their respective corners and let their delegated officials run the show.

This is no time for politicians, we need Statesman
