New York governor Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday he was ‘disappointed’ with the stimulus bill passed by the US Senate on Wednesday night, and called the actions of the Senate ‘irresponsible’ and ‘reckless’. The $2tn package that passed the Senate woefully neglects New York, according to Cuomo, who said it allocated $5bn in aid to the state, earmarked only for Covid-19 expenses. The funds do nothing to address the $10bn-$15bn in lost revenue New York expects to incur because of the crisis, he said.New York governor rails at Congress for lack of aid in Covid-19 crisis: ‘Do your job’
