Explained: Why New York has emerged the epicenter of the US’s COVID-19 outbreak

"York is suffering more drastically than any other state. By far as of right now there has been tragically. Three hundred sixty thousand confirmed cases of coronavirus virus in New York and over twenty three thousand deaths by the time. I am recording this. That is in a state of nineteen million people. Now let's do some compare and contrast in Florida a state of over twenty one million people and a large a large elderly population. There has been only about fifty thousand confirmed cases in only about twenty two hundred deaths so twenty to one hundred deaths in Florida versus over twenty three thousand deaths in the state of New York and Florida is more populous and Texas state with twenty nine million people has had about fifty four thousand cases with only about fifteen hundred deaths again. Fifteen hundred deaths versus twenty three thousand deaths in New York and these states have also had much less restrictive lockdowns. Now there is no doubt that New York is different. It is more densely populated a lot more public transportation. That's much more used than in places like Florida and New York are places like Florida and taxes And I especially true of course in in New York City where most of its cases are but cannot really be the only reason it couldn't possibly be that maybe leadership has fumbled that. Maybe they haven't done as good of a job as the media has said that they are doing. So let's review some facts about Cuomo state and examine. Why possibly they have run into so much trouble. We've talked about this in the past. It bears repeating so the state of New York was facing a budget crisis before all of this happened back in November. The New York Post reported that New York face a six point one billion hole in their budget for this year and Cuomo's planning on making cuts to Medicaid rates for hospitals and nursing homes. They fail to present a real plan. Criticized Dave Free Del of the Citizens Budget Commission. A fiscal watchdog group. They've known about this for a long time but the plan they did present is really one part. Gimmick he added his analysis shows. The state was already in trouble after pushing off a one point. Seven BILLION DOLLAR MEDICAID BILL IN MARCH Two thousand nineteen into Into two thousand twenty which grew into the four billion dollars according to an article in the nation. A left-wing commentary magazine. Obviously I don't agree with a lot of what they write but they can be pretty good at holding Democrats accountable. This is an article by Ross Bark. Entitled Cuomo Helped Get New York into this mess. Governor Cuomo has long mismanaged the budget and the Medicaid Program program in the state and has reduced the size of hospitals. Here's some excerpts from the article in which he argues that some of the budgetary abyss has been the CUOMO administration's own making postponing Medicaid payments and failing in the past iron out inefficiencies. Like the state's pain Medicaid costs for relatively wealthy. Private hospitals are relatively wealthy private hospitals. That don't need the aid in the first place. What's more this has lost. More than twenty thousand hospital beds over the last twenty years Cuomo who has governed for almost half that period CUOMO has governed since two thousand eleven. Never advocated for any kind of expansion of hospital beds until last month he now says New York needs one hundred. Ten thousand says this is a couple months ago more than double the current capacity. He has never been a forceful advocate for keeping hospitals open in fact he is empowered bureaucrats who have argued aggressively to shudder them in two thousand.

But right now at seven twenty five and Joe McConnell. He is here with your Bloomberg update. Money and markets are always going someplace else. Now, some real estate sales in Manhattan are going offline because some condo and co op sellers. Don't want their price cuts in days on the market, quote, all over the internet. So Bloomberg says Moore realtors are now relying on their network of personal contacts. And they're e mailing lists to contact possible. Buyers in one realtor says she currently has six whisper listings off the internet, Bloomberg says, Amazon employees do sometimes hear what is being said in your home because the system is on unless you turn the microphone off making the device, less convenient. But it's on because of listening to be turned on an Amazon employees. Listen randomly sometimes without knowing name, supposedly to learn new words and dialects. So the system can answer questions Amazon did not come to queens, but the New York state budget. It turns out kept the tax breaks for. Tv and film companies and the citizens budget commission says in the last fifteen years, the TV and film industry in New York has now gotten twice as much in tax breaks as Amazon would have received.

"What Goth missed says here's hostility to business at twenty fifteen study by the UpJohn institute for employment research show that New York was second in the nation to New Mexico and above Louisiana in corporate incentives. Just last week the citizens budget commission reported that New York gave corporations roughly ten billion dollars in economic incentives in two thousand eighteen alone with very little real oversight. Now, of course, Jon could've avoided much of the state legislative intrigue and silence critiques of backroom dealing if they had gone through the city's public land used review process to build their campus, just like any other developer. But mayor Blasi who pushed for the deal. I'll be tepidly said that the company refused to consider it. If I had said, this is Bill de Blasio speaking if I had said, hey, Amazon, you're going to have to wait a year and a half of the full land use process. I guarantee guarantee. They would have said sorry, we're going to Virginia. We're going to Dallas we're going somewhere else. And then all of you. Meaning the media would have said how on earth. Did you lose twenty five thousand forty thousand jobs? So there's a lack of integrity in this debate. People should come to grips with it. And I do see the point. And that is precisely what I'm kind of getting in. It's that thing of well great. But in desert versus defacto, what do they actually do on the ground? And I totally see why can we not imagine? And I really hope I wanna know how hard nose those politicians were about the terms of those alleged jobs because what is stopping them from bypassing that process getting billions and tax breaks promising the world as far as jobs, and then the first thing you hear a year after they're in or whatever they've got their foothold they've anchored themselves. Amazon lays off seven thousand employees. I mean, how is that not a possible headline and the other thing is why does New York need a silver bullet single corporation to make it what it needs to be. As far as continuing to support business as total misnomer in that conversation too. And I just I find a total disconnect between that and the kinds.

"But someone here sort of said, let's think about taxes per million dollars value. You know, we could have a whole discussion about whether or not next of right mechanism. Do we care that the property taxes actually based on value? But if you have, and I think that this for for me is particularly relevant is you have co co-op stat are selling for thirty forty fifty million dollars and their taxes per million dollars value are under two thousand per million dollars. And then you have homeowners in Staten Island in Kanar sea and parts of the Bronx who are paying twelve thirteen thousand dollars per million dollars value. So I think that that's a problem. In the system. So to go back to your question Moses, though about you know, what what kind of makes this difficult. I think the revenue neutrality does make it harder. And I think that there's gonna be a lot of things on a table as your thinking about revenue neutrality so Marianne to my laugh mentioned a co-op condo. Bateman? I do think that just primary residence isn't enough in terms of the car condo abatement. The co-op condo abatement dollars. That are spent might need to be on the table in what had helped pay for some of the reforms that need to be done. I think that's kind of important who's really bearing the burden. I think it's very clear the citizens budget commission just issued a report that we think is very supportive of what we claimed in our lawsuit. If you have lower value property in the city, or you're in neighborhoods that are more stable you are paying more than others. And the question is that enough more or less should it? Be a one percent target. You'll be paid one percent. Of our value and taxes. I don't know. But it's very clear that there are neighborhood center paying more lasting that. I would just say is that if you are an owner of property in class to that's the apartment building class, and you have a choice between building a condo and building affordable housing or rental housing. You are going to choose to Bill the condo. And we don't wanna tax system that actually I'm has that. I'm fact in a city where we actually want a mental property. So I would say rental properties also getting harmed in this. I'm not answering marks question about what happens if there's a reduction. I agree with Georgia always have much wisdom and have worked on this. Silly. On you didn't wanna point that out. I was. I am definitely older as they know actually as an economist longtime worked on the initial analysis for the. Senate seven thousand and this Bill. Another proposed something but discover that we affectively had classes back then. So. There's a basic problem that Martha has just pointed out here, which is I think cups and condos it is mixed. No sense that they're not value based on value that just isn't. There is a history of why that happened because we had. Co up conversions that didn't require more than fifteen percent. So of ownership, and so they were basically rental, and we can talk about it. But today created this really absurd situation with very very expensive condos I'm paying anything in terms of value and property taxes supposed to be on the question is what text they should be paying in. Should they be in class one with the other residential if you put him in class one it creates exactly the problem? That message is pointed out which is class one is taxed at a different rate the effective tax rate. We can debate exactly what it is. And so you still have that problem between between classes? Marianne you want to respond to that at all. Or I'm hoping we'll get away from the class system. The moment we. We can't help talking about class one and class two as exist today, but I'm really hoping commissioners, please think about a whole new system think about perhaps a category of commercial property and a category of residential property. And then there's the hard work of figuring out about euless. Just another thing to think about is that within the class one structure, the majority of folks that we work with who are Pomona. Our incomes are usually below one hundred percent of AM I and there's a lot of them. You know, there's probably close to three hundred thousand homeowners in New York City who make less than fifty five thousand dollars a year. So when you're getting taxed at five thousand dollars a year that's ten percent of your income..
