In an interview with the Fox News Rundown podcast on Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul called for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to be impeached over his “disastrous” and “terrible” nursing home policy “to send patients with coronavirus back to nursing homes” during the ongoing pandemic.
“I see a mountain of people who died, particularly, in the nursing homes,” Paul lamented. “I think that many of the things we have done have not worked, and the people we are lauding are people who actually made catastrophic decisions.”
“I think Gov. Cuomo should be impeached for what he did, for the disastrous decision he made to send patients with coronavirus back to nursing homes, and virtually half his people who died were in the nursing homes, same with New Jersey,” he added later.
“So, terrible public health policy decisions were made, and I think, in the end, none of these policies have probably been good for our economy or actually good in containing the virus.”
