New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had a response ready for President Trump. When talking about bailing out New York it is Red State politicians who lose the argument.
Cuomo let the president have it.
The Hill reported the Cuomo press conference as follows.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Monday that New York has been “bailing out” other states for years as he pushes the Trump administration and Congress for federal assistance for state and local governments amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Cuomo called it “repugnant” to be discussing “dollars and cents” contributed by states, but said a tally would show New York repeatedly sending more money to the federal government than it receives.
“It’s not the time to be saying ‘Well you put in a dollar more than I did, or I put in $5 more than you did.’ … But if you want to go to who’s getting bailed out and who paid what, nobody would be bailing out New York state,” Cuomo said during his daily briefing.
“New York state has been bailing them out every year for decades. If you want to do an analysis of who is a giver and who is a taker, we are the number one giver,” he added.
