CNN anchor Chris Cuomo conducted a not so objective interview Wednesday night with his brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo lauding his success in the handling of the novel coronavirus spread in his state.

“It will never be seen as fair in people’s eyes, and we both get that, that’s ok,” Chris Cuomo said. “You got plenty of people to talk to.”

“I just hope you recognize even what I’m able to recognize being spawned from the same wolf pack. I hope you are able to appreciate what you did in your state and what it means for the rest of the country now. And what it will always mean to those who love and care about you the most,” Chris Cuomo told his brother.

He added, “I’m wowed by what you did. And, more importantly, I’m wowed by how you did it. This was very hard. I know it’s not over, but obviously I love you as a brother, obviously, I’ll never be objective, obviously, I think you’re the best politician in the country. But I hope you feel good about what you did for your people because I know they appreciate it. Nothing’s perfect, you’ll have your critics, but I’ve never seen anything like what you did and that’s why I’m so happy to have had you on the show.”

CNN’s Cuomo soon got backlash on social media following the interview. Many argued that the Governor caused thousands of elderly deaths in an executive order that earlier required nursing homes to take recovering COVID-19 patients.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.

The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.

Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.

“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”

“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”

While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
