Sometimes their crime was being unconscious in an ambulance taking them to the nearest (out-of-network) hospital. Other times their mistake was failing to stop their (in-network) provider from commissioning an $18,000 urine test from an (out-of-network) lab. Surprise medical bills like these are a major contributing factor to medical debt, which is the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US."

They want teachers for follow up hygiene, to make sure kids are safe and clean all the time. And if one gets CoVid, they would sue the teacher, sue the school! They are frustrated that CUOMO and De Blasio closed the schools failing to realize TEACHERS DO NOT WANT THEM OPEN EITHER!! You can’t force them to teach your child during these situations and be mommy and daddy while YOU, yourself are incompetent.

  • Cuomo, you need to remember that you're dealing with a LOT of dumb people. They're not all dumb, but many of them are. Add to that the politicization of COVID, people being in isolation, everything else that's going on in 2020, and it's no wonder people are confused. If you want people to remember this sort of thing specifically, bring some easy-to-follow visuals with you and walk people through them several times.

  • Executive Order 3420 11/20/20: Any TEACHER refusing to report to work, or any city, county or state legislator that does not permit a teacher to return to work, will have their income redirected to the Federal Unemployment Pandemic Fund. All Heath Insurance will immediately be terminated, as well as funding to a 401k or Pension Plan. This is awesome for those who are out of work. This will generate billions for the unemployed. This is probably a ploy to get teachers and Cuomo to re-open schools.
