Where is Stefanik’s outrage over Gaetz?
I find it interesting and quite hypocritical that Elise Stefanik is not voicing her concerns and calling for the resignation of Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz. I suppose sex trafficking, cocaine use, sex with a 17-year-old, sex with escorts and setting up a no-show job for an escort is not enough to get her knickers in a twist.
Alleged you say? Same thing with Cuomo, isn’t it? And I am certainly not defending him. I find him to be vile.
With the flip-flopping on Trump, and her silence on Gaetz, she has become woefully disappointing.
Do Democrats hold special powers?
It puzzles me that not everyone would want to be a Democrat.
The Democrats have to be the most powerful political party in the United States.
They have “fraudulently” won an election by millions of votes from states of both parties, they influenced 62 courts and judges (of both parties), including the Supreme Court, to uphold the election results. They have also invented COVID-19 and were able to convince doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and loved ones to declare that their patients or family died of this made-up virus.
Now they found a way to have the FDA approve vaccines that are not safe and are asking us all to be vaccinated against this made-up virus. Is there no end to their influence and power?
I almost forgot they actually allow you to think and disagree with each other.
Once again I wonder why everyone is not a Democrat.
Lawmakers must be more accountable
The fact that several local ambulance services have been forced to close in the last couple of years has put an increased burden on agencies that have been able to remain open.
This was especially obvious during this past year with the covid crisis, the opioid epidemic, and the many other health issues that increased during this time.
While discussing this with a person who was familiar with the Voorheesville closing, it was very discouraging to think that services in already underserved rural areas had to be cut because of lack of funds, but our New York state legislators and governor have raised their own salaries within that same time frame.
What’s disturbing about this is that the people who really need the services suffer because elected officials who do not really even work part-time grab the money when offered.
The salaries of New York state Assembly members and senators and the benefits they receive are shamefully greedy, especially since they no longer really represent their constituents. They only have party allegiance as I have come to realize when I’ve tried to express my views to them in person or in written form.
I also wonder why Tonko, and Santabarbara, as well as elected officials from other districts, never hold town hall meetings to get input?
