NY GOP House Members React to Andrew Cuomo’s COVID Testimony


Congressman Nick Langworthy and Congresswoman Claudia Tenney joined a majority of their Republican colleagues from the House of Representatives to condemn Governor Andrew Cuomo’s actions during the COVID pandemic which led to the deaths of 15-THOUSAND nursing home residents.

New York’s former governor testified in Washington in front of a House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic regarding the state’s response to COVID-19 and the March 25, 2020 mandate that ordered that nursing homes must admit patients who tested positive for COVID.

“New Yorkers have suffered immensely due to Governor Cuomo’s negligent nursing home policies that resulted in the untimely death of 15,000 of our senior citizens,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “In April 2020, I raised the alarm and called for a federal investigation into Cuomo’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis, where he forced COVID positive patients into nursing homes. In response, Cuomo’s team concealed the true reasons behind the alarming death rates in our community to protect his image and secure a lucrative book deal. Today’s testimony is just one step in the fight to hold disgraced Governor Cuomo and those who aided his criminal behavior accountable. We must deliver justice to the innocent victims and their families and ensure that such a tragic failure in leadership never happens again.”

Rep. Tenney and Rep. Langworthy were joined at the press conference on Tuesday by: House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21), Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (OH-02), Congressman Mike Lawler (NY-17), Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), Congressman Marc Molinaro (NY-19), Congressman Brandon Williams (NY-22), and Congressman Anthony D’Esposito (NY-04).
