NEW YORK GOVERNOR CUOMO: Let Grandpa Die, Don’t Resuscitate

Let Grandpa Die

After weeks hiding the death rate in New York’s nursing homes & assisted living centers, the media finally asked New York’s bloviating governor, Andrew Cuomo, about it.  And he said he didn’t know anything! 

THIS from the man who has been on TV daily for weeks telling us all we needed to know about New York’s coronavirus crisis.  Therein lies the problem.  Cuomo didn’t want the public to know how the elderly were being neglected.


For decades, even generations, we have known that the elderly are the most likely victims of viruses.  This was not a mystery.  Medical science did not suddenly discover this fact in the last three months.

In an order issued March 25th, the New York Department of Health ordered nursing homes (state mandate) and assisted living facilities to accept all COVID-19 patients, even those who were contagious, thus spreading the virus among the rest of the residents.

Meanwhile, the USNS Comfort, the hospital ship sent by President Trump, sat near-empty in New York Harbor.*  Governor Cuomo had the absolute authority to override the Department of Health and put these patients on the USNS Comfort.  He didn’t.

The result?  Twenty percent (3,505 out of 15,302) of New York’s dead are the elderly who resided in these facilities.  As Cuomo was babbling on and on about all his power during this emergency, he chose not to exercise it to help the most vulnerable, New York’s elderly.  Is Cuomo using this crisis as a way to remove the most expensive part of New York’s health budget? 


Cuomo’s health department ALSO ordered medical personnel NOT to resuscitate those who have no pulse.  These individuals may or may not be COVID-19 patients so this begs the question: are bureaucrats using the Era of Coronavirus to allow others to die, as well? 

The long-time marching orders to medical personnel were to spend 20 minutes trying to resuscitate anyone without a pulse.  Statistically, these efforts are successful in four percent of the cases.

This new order was quickly rescinded after first responders, who have an instinct to save lives, expressed their outrage at watching people die right in front of them. Respect for life demands that everyone be given a second chance at life.

For better or worse, the Era of Coronavirus is certainly exposing politicians’ attitudes toward their constituents.

I am an American, a patriot, a Conservative, a Republican & a strong Trump supporter. I retired in order to devote 2020 to getting the best president in my lifetime re-elected. Normal Americans have hope for the first time in decades. But, we MUST NOT relax. We have remained silent for too long while Liberalism has caused significant damage to Americans, to American culture and to our nation. Trump's work must continue through 1/2025. If we want anything of value to remain for future generations we need to act now, speak out now. Laugh every time a Liberal speaks, vote every chance we get & volunteer to campaign for Trump. Don't be intimidated by Liberals. Our nation, our culture is too special to lose.

  1. Wonder what Cuomo would say if it were his mother, or his father, or his grandparents who were condemned to death by his order? Nah – they would be saved – they’re ‘speshul’…

    The socialist liberal Democrats have a history of ‘easing’ the elderly out of life. Remember the Death Panels in the horror of 0bamacare? When a concerned daughter asked if her 90-some-odd year old mother (who was still active and full of life and loved living) would be given surgery or resuscitation under 0bamacare, Barack Hussein 0bama flatly stated ‘no’ – that of course she would be kept ‘comfortable’ but heroic treatments would be given to younger people. Why? Because older people remember the way America used to be – with freedom and liberty and the protections of the Constitution – while younger ones only know the lies and deceptions so carefully fostered by the socialist liberal Democrats, who have been systematically destroying our great country for years now.
