Lawmakers in New York have their heads on straight.
Wait. That doesn’t sound right.
This is the state that sent Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Bill de Blasio, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kirsten Gillibrand and numerous other far-left radicals to elected office.
Therefore, it kind of makes sense that the Empire State would cut funding for the Special Olympics while giving raises to its representatives.
It’s not right, of course.
It just makes sense.
From Daily Wire:
Democrat-controlled New York is cutting funds to the Special Olympics and giving a raise to lawmakers a week after Democrats in Washington, D.C., expressed outrage after the Trump administration proposed cutting funds to the Special Olympics.
“New York’s budget for the Special Olympics decreased from $200,000 in 2018 to $150,000 for this year,” The Daily Caller reported. “Meanwhile, every one of the state’s 213 lawmakers will ultimately receive a raise that is almost the same amount cut from the games for disabled athletes.”
The budget, which was decided on Sunday, increases New York state lawmakers’ salaries from $79,500 to $110,000 and raises Governor Andrew Cuomo’s salary by $70,000, increasing it to $250,000.
Ain’t that something?
The exact amount cut from the Games will be given to 213 lawmakers. Funny how that worked out!
Cuomo and his ilk are everything wrong with America, at the moment. They’ll whine about income disparity, then chop up $50,000 and split it between themselves.
As a way to spite President Trump, Governor Cuomo, brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, granted pardons to nearly two dozen “undocumented immigrants” to prevent their deportations.
You have to write “undocumented immigrants” now because a certain social media platform might get upset if you use the two words you actually want to say. Read about it at this link.
From Fox News Insider:
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday took a swipe at President Trump’s immigration policies as he granted clemency to 29 people, including some immigrants who were facing deportation.
According to reports, Cuomo (D) issued pardons to 22 immigrants who, because mainly of drug-related convictions, could have been deported or blocked from citizenship.
He also commuted the sentences of seven other individuals, including four for murder and three for armed robbery.
Cuomo: “While President Trump shuts down the federal government over his obsession with keeping immigrants out, New York stands strong in our support for immigrant communities. These actions will help keep immigrant families together and take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York.“
