NY Governor Cuomo Fails Civics Test ... Doesn't Understand Federal Form of Government

In a news meeting this morning, Cuomo said the Federal Government should dictate to states whether their schools should be closed, that their restaurants must close, and on and on.
Unfortunately, the Federal Government only has jurisdiction over interstate commerce.

It's not a good look when a State Governor invites the National Government to ignore the Constitution and dictate to States those laws and regulations that are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Socialism is weakening the fabric of the USA Federalist form of Government!

Greatest State in the union! Don’t be Jelly. @Wally and I pay a lot in taxes for these schools to be closed. My Demwitted friends and I are wondering if Starbucks is considered to be a restaurant though...

Maybe things like this is why there is a 2nd Amendment?

Can't wait to hear what you states rights guys have to say when states with depleted treasuries and reserves go hat in hand to the federal government to beg, bum and borrow from it in order to continue to provide essential public services.
Likewise don't expect to see a lot in the way of infrastructure repair and upgrades this coming summer other than what has already been committed to.

I love watching you big government liberals bitch and moan that the big government you love so much hasn't done a good job handling this situation.

Honestly, you’re one of my favorites, do you believe people left to their own vices would do the right thing in this situation and not crowd the bars on St Patty’s day, spreading this virus to unknowing potential victims?

Listen, I keep just thanking whoever or whatever is in charge that it’s a relatively kind virus to children. This would all be a different conversation otherwise.

Surely restaurants and movie theaters being closed for a few weeks are not considered to be oppressive. If they are oppressive, then maybe we are all a bunch of pusillanimous.
Maybe you missed the point.
The fact is, that decision is one to be made at the local level - State or Local Government ... not the National Government.
