Cuomo calls $2 trillion bill irresponsible and reckless

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo known as a $2 trillion stimulus invoice designed to ease the financial affect of the coronavirus pandemic sweeping throughout the nation “irresponsible” and “reckless.”

“The congressional action in my opinion simply failed to address the governmental need,” Cuomo stated at a press convention in Albany on Thursday.

The invoice, which passed the Senate unanimously late last night, helps small companies and unemployment insurance coverage, “and that is a good thing,” Cuomo stated.

But it “did not help local governments or state governments, and it did not address the governmental loss,” he stated. “And the federal officials, the ones who are being honest, will admit that.”

“I’m disappointed, I said I was disappointed. I find it irresponsible, I find it reckless,” Cuomo stated. “When this is over, I promise you I’m going to give them a piece of my mind.”

The Democratic governor’s state has quickly become the U.S. epicenter of the coronavirus crisis.

The variety of confirmed COVID-19 instances in New York shot as much as 37,258 – greater than half of the entire variety of instances within the nation. More than 5,300 residents have already been hospitalized and the state is projecting that may climb to 140,000 over the subsequent two to a few weeks, Cuomo stated.

“This is the time for government leaders to stop making excuses and just do your job. Do your job,” Cuomo stated.

The state has already spent $1 billion combating the pandemic and estimates it would price $10 billion to $15 billion in misplaced income, Cuomo stated. The $5 billion that his state receives from the invoice – the biggest reduction bundle in U.S. historical past – just isn’t almost sufficient, he stated.

That quantity, he added, is “earmarked only for COVID virus expenses. Which means it does absolutely nothing for us in terms of lost revenue to the state,” which Cuomo known as “the bigger problem.”

“Now is a time to actually step up, do the right thing and do your job. And they haven’t as far as I’m concerned when it comes to the governmental need,” he stated.
