Engel Teaches Dems That Backing War and Apartheid Has a Downside

Engel was one of blue America’s most enthusiastic supporters of the war in Iraq. He was an opponent of Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran. After the Obama administration allowed the passage of a United Nations resolution condemning Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank, Engel introduced a House resolution condemning the U.N. In 2016, as Saudi Arabia was starving and bombing Yemeni civilians, Engel joined Republicans in defeating a measure that would have restricted Riyadh’s access to cluster munitions, weapons that leave behind mine-like explosives that can kill civilians for decades after a conflict has ended.

Cuomo gave immunity to nursing home executives after big campaign donations

(26.05.2020)

Less than two years after that flood of cash from the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA), Cuomo signed legislation last month quietly shielding hospital and nursing home executives from the threat of lawsuits stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. The provision, inserted into an annual budget bill by Cuomo’s aides, created one of the nation’s most explicit immunity protections for healthcare industry officials, according to legal experts.

Critics say Cuomo removed a key deterrent against nursing home and hospital corporations cutting corners in ways that jeopardize lives.

“There is a very real possibility that we would roll back the reopening in those areas,” he said, adding that if people didn’t abide social distancing rules, including wearing masks, a second wave of infections was almost inevitable. “It will come. And once it comes, it’s too late.”

In New York, which has one of the strictest laws in the country protecting the privacy of law enforcement officers, Gov. Andrew Cuomo surprised advocates this week when he expressed support for repealing 50-a, despite the fact that the legislation has been hotly debated during the nine years he has been in office. “I would sign a bill today that reforms 50-a,” Cuomo said. “I would sign it today.” De Blasio has defended 50-a, and under his administration the city has stopped making the outcomes of internal disciplinary reviews available to the public.

And the balance between federal and state authority was central to the constitution, it’s one of the great balances of power. „

The governor expanded his criticism to the entire New York congressional delegation, saying that all three federal rescue bills passed in recent weeks failed to address the state’s looming budget deficit despite his direct communication with senators and representatives.

“Why would you do that to the state of New York?” he asked of the restriction on Medicaid restructuring. ‘Why would you say, ‘Stop a Medicaid redesign that saves taxpayers money that has to be passed by the Assembly and has to be passed by the Senate’? Why would a federal government … trample a state’s right to [address] a Medicaid program that it runs? I don’t even know what the political interest is that they’re trying to protect.”
