NY Dems Block Subpoena For Nursing Home Records

Last week, Attorney General Letitia James issued a scathing report that found Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his health agency withheld an accurate count of the number of nursing home residents who died from COVID-19 by some 50 percent by excluding residents who died after being take to hospitals.

The GOP Senators in New York filed a motion to compel the state Health Department to release records just days after Attorney General Letitia James issued the report.

Now Democrats who control the state Senate blocked the motion on Monday to subpoena the records of the Cuomo administration seeking a fuller accounting of nursing home residents who died from the coronavirus.

Sen. James Skoufis (D-Rockland) slammed the GOP motion for what he called an ambush and a political motion saying "This committee is not going to be bullied into doing something after we laid out a road map to getting information.”

I think we all know there is only one reason why you would not want to be transparent with the numbers and keep lying to the people of New York. Cuomo has been playing politics at the cost of tens of thousands of people's lives.
