Sarah Palin Was Right: Death Panels Take Grim Toll In Cuomo's New York 

   Sarah Palin was right. She warned us about death panels over a decade ago. Sadly, they mocked her for it. Sadly, they're here.
In 2009, Palin gave her honest assessment of life under Obama-Care. The former Alaska governor concluded that the Affordable Care Act would give bureaucrats the authority to decide who stays and who goes. The sick and the elderly would be at the mercy of a panel of government strangers. Such panel members would determine whether people live or die.  
Politicians, pundits, and press members said she was lying. They called her names. They told us this was all a wild right-wing conspiracy. Sadly though, Palin was right. 

   Back in '09, Plain wrote on social media:
"And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

   Years passed and example after heartbreaking example, showed us all that Palin was indeed right. In 2012, she doubled down on her original post. 
Palin told the world she had no regrets about her first take on death panels, 'not even a smidgen'. She brilliantly compared and contrasted original quotes from naysayers about her initial remarks, with new evidence on wrongful deaths tied to the big VA scandal. 

   In the years to follow, Palin continued to touch on this subject, exposing Democrats for their lust for a single-payer system, government overreach, and statism. She continued to be right.
While Palin introduced us to national death panels, tyrannical governors in 2020 are showing us all just how deadly this concept can be on a state level. 
According to President Trump, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had an opportunity to order 16,000 ventilators in 2015 at a reduced rate but opted for death panels and lotteries instead. Trump addressed this during a town hall at the White House back in March of this year.

   Whether you want to believe Palin and Trump or not, Cuomo's recent actions speak for themselves. 
We are nine months into living with the Chinese Corona-virus and Cuomo has failed to announce the total number of nursing home deaths in New York. Cuomo has, however, written a braggadocio book, while making all the TV and radio rounds with celebrities who sing his praises. But when it comes to the seniors who real Empire State families have lost, Cuomo is quiet.
Under Cuomo, more than 6,400 patients who were COVID- positive were sent from hospitals to nursing homes. This was Cuomo's form of a death panel. Government, not patients, not families, choosing what happens to sick seniors.  

   While good New Yorkers are grieving the loss of loved ones, Cuomo is smiling all the way to the bank. He is set for a salary hike next year that will make him the highest-paid governor in the country. He is shamelessly pushing his book, that one former staffer called 'self-congratulatory'.  He even inexplicably took home an Emmy. It's "in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world," according to the International Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences. That same ex-aide, Alexis Grenell, called this development 'depressing'. But, while Palin, Trump, and Grenell may be on to the real Cuomo, the media continue to prop him up like some sort of king.
Facts are facts. Cuomo alone is to blame for refusing to shut down New York and forcing seniors who tested positive for Corona-virus back into nursing homes. Cuomo did not follow CMS or CDC guidelines leading to the demise of so many. 

   Last week, a group of New Yorkers fought back, holding a huge anti-Cuomo rally. Jennifer Harrison, a MAGA Mama Grizzlies For Free & Fair Elections board member, was one of the organizers. Since the successful Freedom Rally, Harrison and several others have been mocked by Cuomo's right-hand man via social media.
While Harrison and colleagues grieve for the '11,000 people killed in nursing homes', Cuomo's senior advisor Rich 'Dick' Azzopardi called the group Voices For Seniors a 'death cult'. He goes on to criticize the families who have lost loved ones and are on a quest for answers, justice, and change, calling them 'unimpressive'. Wow.
The iconic 'I Love New York' logo features a big heart. Cuomo's people seem to have very little love or heart when it comes to those in pain.
Cuomo failed. He continues to fail. His actions have led to death. Sarah Palin was right.

   While Cuomo doesn't seem to show much emotion when it comes to the loss of thousands of New York seniors, one sure way to fire him up is by referring to his brother, CNN's Chris Cuomo, as 'Fredo'. Governor Cuomo has been known to lash out when Chris is compared to that weak-willed character from The Godfather movies. Telling though, isn't it? Andrew Cuomo gets emotional about fictional films in which there are almost 70 fake deaths, yet remains defiant about the thousands of real people who actually died in New York nursing homes under his watch. That is as unimpressive as it gets.
