Pfizer has said no to Governor Cuomo. The pharmaceutical giant declined to sell vaccine doses directly to New York State. It said it would need permission from the federal government to do so. While the idea may have merit, it shows that King Andrew can not always impose his will. He has bullied his way throughout the pandemic. However, this time he has hit a brick wall. Rule by executive fiat does not always work. The wheels of democracy are finally kicking in. Chastened by the rebuke, Andy must regroup. New Yorkers are breathing a sigh of relief.
