An Albany Lobbyist's Ethics Problem Are Solved As He Is Transformed To Consultant For Andrew Cuomo

When deeds speak, words are nothing.  ~African Proverb

   Here's the deeds from Cuomo's Medicaid Redesign Team: "The consumer advocacy group the Center for Justice and Democracy is calling on Medicaid Redesign Team member and Cuomo confidante Jeffrey Sachs to release “a sworn affidavit that you have not discussed the Medicaid Redesign Team or any issue covered by the Medicaid Redesign Team with any of your clients and to explain exactly what services you are being paid for by these clients and how much.”  and "You have 'quickly emerged as a leader on the governor’s 27-person Medicaid redesign team' while “working as a paid consultant to some of the biggest players in the New York health care industry, including Mount Sinai Medical Center, NYU Langone Medical Center and the state’s largest association of nursing homes, all of which have financial interests at stake in the coming Medicaid changes.

 Here's Cuomo's words  in his Inaugural Speech:   (Note all the trust, believe, and restore words.)

1. "That’s what this administration is going to be all about — restoring the pride, making the government work, my friends. So people once again trust the government and trust the institution. So that people once again believe in government, in themselves and in this state.  And that’s what this is all going to be about. Rebuild the government, restore confidence, restore trust, get the people of this state believing once again. Believe in government, believe in themselves, believe in each other, believe in our future. Believe in our potential, believe that we can fulfill this dream of New York and we’re going to make this state the Empire State, greater than it’s ever been before."

2. "The special interests who have ruled our government for years must give way to the people’s agenda."

3. "Number 2 is going to be cleaning up Albany and restoring trust because Bob [Duffy] is right, you have nothing without trust."

4."Too often government responds to the whispers of the lobbyists before the cries of the people."
5. "The words “government in Albany” have become a national punch line. And the joke is on us. Too often government responds to the whispers of the lobbyists before the cries of the people. Our people feel abandoned by government, betrayed and isolated, and they are right."

  Here's how the Illusionist has resolved the disparity by "the public relations firm of Ken Sunshine and Shawn Sachs[nephew of Jeffery Sachs], Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s good pal Jeffrey Sachs won’t go to bat for his clients in Albany for as long as Cuomo has a government to run. Declaring that Jeffrey Sachs is not a lobbyist, but a consultant, the spokesman, Jesse Derris, said Jeffrey Sachs has changed his way of operating as a consultant for a host of health care institutions. This comes as Cuomo is trying to get lawmakers to adopt a sweeping ethics reform plan."

 Here's what you now see: Shawn Sachs now deals with the clients for fees, while Jeffery Sachs deals with the government.

Here's today's latest that Sachs should register as a Lobbyist in NY Times.

Now you see it. now you don't.  An illusionist at work
