Cuomo’s No Darling of the Movement Against Police Brutality

Andrew Cuomo has developed a cult following across the country, with many lauding him as the strong leader working people need.

Liberal Elite More Deadly Than Coronavirus
As the coronavirus pandemic spreads, millionaires and billionaires, who have been key to oppressing the working class, are trying to position themselves as everyday Americans. We need to understand them for what they are: beneficiaries and key supporters of the capitalist system that helped create this crisis.

Governor Cuomo Calls For Medicaid Cuts in Midst of Pandemic
New York governor Andrew Cuomo wants to cut the state’s Medicaid spending by $400 million in the next year. His long-standing dream of neoliberal healthcare “reform” is alive and well, even in the midst of a global pandemic that has brought New York City to the brink of disaster.
