    It's not Cuomo's fault that he's forced to consider such measures.
    Who is the person responsible for pitting elected officials against each other in some sick and twisted Ayn Rand battle while their son in law claims the federal stockpile is not for "US" it's "ours" (Kushner's) ??
    Back in 2015, Cuomo had the opportunity to get more ventilators, but called it a waste of money. His hands are tied for a reason, and now wants upstate to "share".

    And yes, Trump should be sending more medical supplies to NYC. I agree.

    Yes, according to our representatives, we need the ventilators in case, we get a spike in cases. Basically he wants us to have a shortage. Upstate just doesn't buy the "payback" argument.
    Your article again did not support your premise, as Cuomo states he is only taking excess ventilators. That's two-out-of-two.

    I posted another article as well. So you disagree with what our local politicians from both sides of the aisle are saying: We're strapped as well.

    I am a lifelong resident of New York state. No, I do not live in "the city". I live in upstate NY, a region, Andrew Cuomo and both U.S Senators from NY, cares very little about. Recently he's been threatening to take our ventilators from upstate NY hospitals and use them for NYC. For those of you who don't know where "upstate NY" is, basically it's near the Canadian border, in the Buffalo-Rochester-Niagara Falls-Seneca Falls region. My County Executive, Adam Bello, is up in arms, as well as every assemblymen and state Senators in upstate NY. Some say, we're being selfish, but I look at it this way: We have limited supply as well. Sorry I am angry. Never been a fan of Cuomo btw. Am I right or wrong here?
    Selfish? Letting your medical equipment sit idle while you watch fellow New Yorkers die for lack of it? Nah.

    Because the FEDERAL STOCKPILE should have been maintained precisely FOR situations like this.
    That is WHY it was considered a waste of money.
    Sorry but I grew up in the Cold War era. Can you imagine if the Russians actually HAD attacked us, and Eisenhower or Kennedy was forcing elected officials to fight each other for supplies and shortchanging military and national guard for states who didn't kiss their ass?

    We DROWNED government IN THE BATHTUB and we are witnessing the result NOW in real time.
    This IS the world Ayn Rand envisioned, so if anyone is complaining, and those same people stood in line to purchase a copy of her book because they thought she was such a visionary genius, those people need to stab themselves with a fork each time they bitch and moan.

    This IS Trump's baby, this IS Trump's abortion and this IS what you get when you trust Trump to fulfill his constitutional duty to keep us safe.
    Instead, Kushner is doing the "MY PRECIOUS!" routine.



    with a federal stockpile paid for by taxpayers
    Are you better off than you were four years ago?

    That's what I am saying. Some people are implying that I want NYC to suffer, because NY lawmakers care more about one region over another. That's not my point at all. I get that his hands are tied. We need more support, federal support, not to divert vital medical supplies from one region to another. That's my only concern.

    If that turns out to be true, and Cuomo comes after your necessary resources, I'll be happy to call foul. Bur right now he hasn't done anything for me to judge wrong. And until he does, I won't.

We have a rich history. My city Rochester is the home of Kodak and George Eastman. The reason why they see it as a "wasteland" because NY state doesn't try to create more economic opportunities. And this is precisely why I am making these strong arguments: NYC gets all the major financing. But when NYC needs help, we're suppose to bail THEM out. It's basically a one-sided non-existent friendship.
    It reminds me of Illinois. Chicago and Springfield rule and the rest of us pay for their garbage.

    By all means, call us "selfish" for not wanting Cuomo to steal our medical supply and leave us short-handed.
    This will come back to sting Cuomo's ass if he decides to make a 2024 run (or if the Dumbos decide that Biden can't hack it against Trump and replace him with Andy, which has become The Thing that's been kicked around by certain media people lately).
