Very much out of control, it would seem. Albany puts end to 'Cuomo Chips' as it repeals gov order of food with booze sales
Oh, and there's another scandal - something about a book and use of public funds in its preparation... But the Left will ignore it.
Cuomo imposed the food-with-drinks executive order last summer, arguing that the requirement would help fend off rowdy drinking crowds that could lead to the spread of COVID-19.
Follow the science? What science? There is no science about ordering food. So, instead of ordering a beer, you order 3 beers and some chips, or group orders a pitcher (are they legal in NYC?) and some chips. And how does this impact COVID?
“The purchase of food with alcohol [is] arbitrary and not based on science,” state Sen. John Mannion (D-Syracuse) said during the chamber debate.
“I’ve yet to find any scientific literature that finds a correlation between ordering food with your drink, and stopping the spread of COVID-19.”
But then he was just living out a dictator's fantasy. He was making rules because he could make rules.
