    On January 6, 2022, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont decided to follow the covid guidance issued by then Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo on nursing homes. Lamont, along with Health Commissioner Manisha Juthani and Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz, asked nursing homes to accept Covid-positive patients to relieve the "crush" of covid patients in hospitals.

    “Hospitalized patients should be discharged from acute care whenever clinically indicated, regardless of COVID-19 status,” Public Health Commissioner Dr. Manisha Juthani wrote in the two-page memo.

    If a nursing home were to refuse a COVID-positive person, the guidance put the onus on the hospital to find another place that would accept the person, according to Max Reiss, a spokesman for Lamont.

    Unfortunately, Lamont's reckless and unscientific nursing home policy led to countless preventable deaths among those most vulnerable to covid.

    “Ned Lamont’s reckless mismanagement and failed response to Covid is continuing to harm seniors and prolong needless suffering among Connecticut’s most vulnerable,” said Chris Gustafson, the spokesperson for the Republican Governors Association, at the time. “Failing to learn from the deadly decisions of Gretchen Whitmer, Tom Wolf, and his buddy Andrew Cuomo proves that Ned Lamont is unfit to lead.”

    When Cuomo put covid positive patients into nursing homes, it was an unmitigated disaster.

    "It was reported that more than 15,000 individuals died in New York nursing homes and long-term care facilities during the Cuomo Administration. Early in the pandemic, science proved that age was the most important factor for predicting COVID mortality. Cuomo ignored this fact," said the statement from the Select Subcommittee on X.

    Worse, the Cuomo Administration allegedly undercounted the total number of nursing home deaths by APPROXIMATELY 50%.

    Cuomo has apparently tried to delay the investigation into his actions during the pandemic.

    Of course, now that Cuomo has been called to appear for a deposition before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, many in Connecticut are wondering when Lamont will get his turn to appear before the committee to account for his pandemic decisions and answer for his own deadly policy failures.

    Whitmer in Michigan did the exact same as Cuomo and killed thousands of elder Michiganders.

    Talk about the “BIG LIE”!! These people have no morals and politics drives them to be misleading and flat out lie to benefit themselves. Judgement day comes for every individual that put humanity behind political aspirations. Even our students learning loss couldn’t keep them from being dishonest.
