UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST - Why Send People Back To Nursing Homes To Die?



Andrew Cuomo gave immunity to nursing home execs after big campaign donations

As Governor Andrew Cuomo faced a spirited challenge in his bid to win New York’s 2018 Democratic primary, his political apparatus got a last-minute boost: a powerful healthcare industry group suddenly poured more than $1m into a Democratic committee backing his campaign. 
Less than two years after that flood of cash from the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA), Cuomo signed legislation last month quietly shielding hospital and nursing home executives from the threat of lawsuits stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. 
The provision, inserted into an annual budget bill by Cuomo’s aides, created one of the nation’s most explicit immunity protections for healthcare industry officials, according to legal experts. 
Critics say Cuomo removed a key deterrent against nursing home and hospital corporations cutting corners in ways that jeopardize lives. 
As those critics now try to repeal the provision during this final week of Albany’s legislative session, they assert that data prove such immunity is correlating to higher nursing home death rates during the pandemic – both in New York and in other states enacting similar immunity policies. 
New York has become one of the globe’s major pandemic hotspots – and the center of the state’s outbreak has been nursing homes, where more than 5,000 New Yorkers have died, according to Associated Press data.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
“From a friend in NYC: 
I said this a week or two in. If you know New York’s health care system, you know which hospitals are owned by the city, and mostly frequently used by Medicaid patients or those with no insurance at all —illegals. 
Elmhurst hospital, which got all the attention early on, for being overwhelmed and having no PPE supplies, is one of those. Not surprisingly, the city hospitals are run without reserves of equipment. 
Ditto the nursing homes that had the highest mortality rates. All filled with Medicaid patients. Among other things, it’s worth knowing that 3 million New Yorkers were pushed into the state’s “exchange” version of Medicaid, when we lost all of the moderate priced private plans after Obamacare was foisted upon the country. 
Cuomo was a big proponent of Obamacare. He set up a complicated system here. It obviously bankrupted the state. He destroyed our options, our care and our budget in a mere decade. The. He killed old people to end costs. Then all the big blue state Governors followed his lead. Astonishing.”

For this policy to be taking place in multiple states and on multiple continents under progressive governance is beyond coincidence.
