Can you believe who hid the true number of nursing home deaths?

Hello, fellow passionate Republican voters! Today, we bring you an exclusive report from Fox News, shedding light on a critical issue concerning the Biden administration’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik is taking a firm stand, demanding the removal of a federal health official linked to New York’s deadly nursing home policy.

Howard Zucker, the Deputy Director for Global Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), assumed this position in January 2021. However, it is important to note that he resigned as New York State health commissioner about a year and a half prior to this appointment. His resignation came amid allegations that Andrew Cuomo’s administration concealed the true number of deaths in nursing homes during the pandemic.

Stefanik, a strong advocate for accountability, minced no words in her call for action. She branded Zucker as a “”Cuomo henchman”” and held him responsible for the tragic deaths of countless New York seniors. According to her, Zucker played a pivotal role in the “”criminal corruption scandal and coverup”” that led to the unnecessary loss of lives.

Not only Stefanik but also other New York Republicans are rallying behind this cause. Rep. Nick LaLota emphasized that Zucker’s reckless decisions during the pandemic caused the deaths of thousands of New Yorkers in nursing homes. He expressed his belief that Zucker should be held accountable in a courtroom, not given a position of power where he can potentially cause more harm.

Echoing similar sentiments, Rep. Mike Lawler accused Zucker of misleading New Yorkers during the pandemic. Lawler also took aim at Cuomo for profiting from the crisis through his memoir. He highlighted Zucker’s involvement in a “”shameful coverup”” and called on President Biden to act swiftly and fire Zucker.

During the pandemic’s peak in 2020, New York’s Health Department, under Zucker’s direction, enacted a policy that saw COVID-19 patients being sent back to nursing homes after hospitalization. Critics argued that this move contributed to the surge in the state’s virus cases, which was denied by Cuomo’s officials.

In light of this disturbing situation, we stand united in demanding accountability and justice for the families who tragically lost their loved ones due to this deadly policy. President Biden must act decisively and remove Howard Zucker from his position at the CDC. Let us continue to fight for the truth and the well-being of our fellow Americans. Stay tuned to Fox News for further updates on this developing story.
