Gov. Cuomo: McConnell’s Bankruptcy Suggestion ‘One of the really dumb ideas of all time’

Mitch McConnell

New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after he told FOX News’ “Bill Hemmer Reports” Wednesday that the U.S. Senate is “not interested in revenue replacement for state governments,” who he claims are trying to “take advantage” of the coronavirus epidemic by requesting assistance to pay off their rising deficits.

Cuomo called it “one of the really dumb ideas of all time” in the following Twitter thread.

“We’re interested in trying to help them with anything related to the coronavirus … [but] we are not interested in solving their pension problems and all these other things that they would like for us to finance,” McConnell told FOX News.

Prior to his interview with Bill Hemmer, McConnell told the “Hugh Hewitt Show” that he would prefer states declare bankruptcy rather than sending additional federal dollars to governors who have been begging the federal government for immediate financial assistance.

“What I’m saying is, we will take a pause,” McConnell told Hemmer. “We’re gonna wait at least until May the 4th … before we provide assistance to state and local governments who would love for us to borrow money from future generations to make sure that they have no revenue losses. Before we make that decision, we’re going to weigh the impact of what we’ve already added to the national debt, and make certain that if we provide additional assistance for state and local governments, it’s only for coronavirus-related matters. We’re not gonna let them take advantage of this pandemic to solve a lot of problems [and] bad decisions they’ve made in the past.”

McConnell’s remarks come one day after the Senate reached an agreement on an interim stimulus package that would replenish funds in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). At first, he planned to have the bill include funding for the PPP only, but Democrats delayed the legislation until they could add other elements to the package. Sen. McConnell did cave to some of their requests, but he kept funding for state and local governments out of the bill, which is expected to be voted on in the House of Representatives on Thursday.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
