NY Gov abruptly reverses stance on COVID-19 lockdowns

Just when America thought the political world couldn’t possibly get any more confusing and ridiculous, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo proved us all wrong with a stunning announcement this week concerning the state of the COVID-19 crisis in his state.

According to Breitbart, with just nine days left of President Donald Trump’s term in the White House, the New York governor announced that he’s quitting his nearly year-long pro-lockdown crusade, writing in a tweet that the “cost is too high” to keep businesses in his state closed, even warning that many might never open again as a result.

With New York citizens experiencing some of the strictest lockdown measures in the midst of the pandemic, Cuomo’s sudden change of heart, unsurprisingly, took many by surprise.

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass,” Cuomo tweeted. “The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely.”

Not long ago, as the pandemic spread across the state like wildfire and especially throughout New York City with a mounting death toll, Cuomo warned business owners in the state that negative actions would be taken against them if they were repeat violators of the lockdown measures.

The governor even threatened to publish the names of businesses who were repeated violators of the lockdowns. “We’re also going to post the names of the establishments facing disciplinary charges,” Cuomo said in July.

Adding to the extreme pushback of Cuomo’s strict lockdowns, the United States Supreme Court recently found that the orders unfairly discriminated against certain religious communities, including New York’s large Orthodox Jewish community, who claimed that they were discriminated against.

The timing of Cuomo’s sudden change of heart lends some level of vindication to many who claimed that once the 2020 election was wrapped up that the lockdown efforts would be relaxed.

Thank you for saying everything this old lady wants to say. The only other reason they want to open up is because Biden will take office and they reached their objective of making it appear it was Trumps fault for politics. To make it appear Biden got everything under control.

You are 100% correct. Cuomo is a coward.. He’s probably changing his tune because of the lawsuits filed against him. The creep is so full of himself. He has to go!

The Governor is the most disingenuous baffoon ln the country. Not even trying to obfuscate his stupidity.Personally ownes the most criminal response to covid and is responsible for every death in New York. Including the desth of New York. Know The Truth.

Gov. Cuomo finally decided the lock down was over bearing, as so many New Yorker’s Left the State and City . If that continued, there might not be enough Tax Revenue coming in to Pay His Salary !

Why all of a sudden the change in heart? Does this mean that all stores will be re-opening for business?

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe that you
should write more on this issue, it may not be a taboo
matter but usually people do not discuss such topics.
To the next! Cheers!!
