Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is under fire for his scandal of putting coronavirus patients into nursing homes, but he is not the only state leader to have done so. Govs. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, Gavin Newsom of California, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania and Phil Murphy of New Jersey all had similar policies that allowed people with positive COVID tests to be admitted or readmitted into a nursing home, according to the Washington Examiner. What do these governors all have in common? To almost nobody’s surprise, they are all Democrats. The original reasoning behind these directives had to do with hospital capacity, but that logic ultimately backfired as nursing home deaths began to surge, quickly becoming a large percentage of deaths nationwide.
