President and NY Governor Trade Shots Over Funding

The president and New York’s governor continue to trade barbs over funding issues. While the president said he opposes bailouts for blue states, in his daily coronavirus press briefing yesterday, Andrew Cuomo said coronavirus doesn’t kill Democrats or Republicans, it kills Americans…

Cuomo noted New York pays $29 billion more in taxes to the federal government than it receives every year, and red states such as Kentucky get $37 billion more in federal funding than they contribute.

COVID-19 by the numbers, the state now has confirmed around 321,000 total cases of coronavirus across the state and nearly 20,000 deaths. In Rockland, the state says we’ve got over 12,100 reported cases, and the Rockland Health Department confirms 551 deaths here in the county as of yesterday afternoon, a jump of nearly 3% from the day before. Westchester also saw a spike in hospitalizations yesterday, but Rockland saw a decline.
