    Cuomo’s adult-home order is crazy: critics​

    The city’s population of mentally deranged street people may explode because of new regulations signed by Gov. Cuomo last week that forbid privately run adult homes from accepting new residents, advocates warned.

    “Hospitals can’t discharge to us,” said Jeffrey Edelman, who runs adult homes in Queens and The Bronx. “Within a week, the hospitals will be starting to get backed up, and they are going to have big problems.”

    The change is part of the state’s efforts to comply with a federal court ruling that found institutionalizing the mentally ill in adult homes wrongly segregates them.

    An estimated 4,000 to 6,000 mentally ill people, the majority in New York City, could be affected.

    Between Cuomo and Bloomberg, the lunatics are truly running the asylum known as New York State. Dear heavens how I feel sorry for conservatives in that state.
