New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has been selected the 2020 Porker of the Year by Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) for politicizing and delaying the distribution of new COVID-19 vaccines that will save lives.
In November, Gov. Cuomo claimed that America’s speedy vaccine approval process was driven by “the money and ego” of pharmaceutical companies and President Trump, respectively.
He announced that New York would set up its own analysis and review of the vaccine, further delaying its release even though it had already undergone the most rigorous review process in the world for quality, safety, and efficacy.
His failure to move quickly in December and January once the vaccine was received has now led to significant delays in vaccinations throughout New York State. And this was all before it was revealed this week that Gov. Cuomo’s office understated by 50 percent the number of deaths in nursing homes caused by his policies last year.
