Gov. Andrew Cuomo wasted money for ventilators on solar energy.

Real Clear Politics: New York's Ventilator Rationing Plan.
After learning that the state's stockpile of medical equipment had 16,000 fewer ventilators than New Yorkers would need in a severe pandemic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo came to a fork in the road in 2015. He could have chosen to buy more ventilators. Instead, he asked his health commissioner, Howard Zucker to assemble a task force and draft rules for rationing the ventilators they already had.
Cuomo could have purchased the additional 16,000 needed ventilators for $36,000 apiece or a total of $576 million in 2015. It's a lot of money but less than the $750 million he threw away on a boondoggle "Buffalo Billion" solar panel factory.

Now we know that not only did Cuomo not purchase excess ventilators for emergencies but he used state funds on a solar panel boondoggle instead.

Molson, that video clip...dayum! Never thought I'd ever say this, but by comparison, the Cuomos make Jebby seem like a Mensa member. "Please clap."
Take it EZ.
