O Albany -- isn't the governance of New York as corrupt and unresponsive as any other state's?

In Year 1 of the all Democratic control of Albany: Cuomo rejected 43 more bills last night. Since Jan, he's vetoed 160 bills from a busy legislative session. That's the most - if I'm doing my math correctly via LRS bill tracking system - since becoming governor in 2011.

Gov. Cuomo has designed this poster as a visual representation of where he sees New York in 2020 -- both the accomplishments and the symbolic stormy sea. He's been giving it to people at the Capitol. https://t.co/4emgjy79uJ pic.twitter.com/YXAunNQepj

Wait. Did @NYGovCuomo just announce a whole spate of 90-day #COVID19 mortgage relief policies… and NOTHING for renters?

Sean Petty of @nynurses says NY Governor Andrew Cuomo is the "single most important person in terms of the drive to close down hospital beds in this state over the last 20 years. … We are now 20,000 beds behind where we need to be in terms of trying to scale up our capacity." pic.twitter.com/xjHjoyA6qk

My accountant just sent me this breakdown for freelance folks out there:

https://www.syracuse.com/coronavirus/2020/03/coronavirus-stimulus-how-to-get-unemployment-aid-for-freelancer-contractor-part-time-workers-typically-left-out.html?outputType=amp

pull quote:

"Begin by visiting your state’s labor department or equivalent website. For New Yorkers, head to labor.ny.gov. If you are not traditionally eligible for unemployment benefits, begin the standard unemployment insurance application process, and apply for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance."

pull quote from NY LABOR site:

"Filing a new Unemployment Insurance claim? The day you should file is based on the first letter of your last name. Last names starting with A - F, file on Monday. Last names starting with G - N, file on Tuesday. Last names starting with O - Z, file on Wednesday. If you missed your filing day, file on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Filing later in the week will not delay your payments or affect the date of your claim; all claims are effective on the Monday of the week in which they are filed"

soooo.... if today is your day, get on it.

The final part of the application process requires a phone call to an actual person, and I've seen lots of reports of people using autodialers, trying for a week, and never getting through. So this is going to be fun.

California's Democratic Party seems to be equally full of unprincipled careerists and industry-captured lackeys as New York's but with far fewer outright saboteurs and Republican collaborators. And a higher level of basic competence. I would trade in a heartbeat!

There are almost 1000 people infected in NY prisons (staff and people incarcerated). These numbers are only going to get worse, and yet Gov. Cuomo hasn't given a single reprieve or commutation, even though he has the absolute authority to do it. He is responsible for this. https://t.co/XxDDWRvWi5

Of the $10.1 billion in spending cuts Andrew Cuomo will foist on New York, more than $8 billion will be for aid-to-localities. What does this mean? Everything. Public schools, mass transit, social services. The stuff New Yorkers need a budget for.

I know Cuomo is still a goblin, but I can't lie, I love it when it attacks McConnell and Republicans over holding back COVID funding to New York, bringing up that we pay out way more federal money than comes in, year and year out And he reminded that we always fund hurricanes and floods and disasters (rightfully) but now that we need the money, as the hardest hit state, now there's all this bullshit. Glad that someone is actually standing up and fucking saying it.
