Cuomo calls lawmakers back to Albany for NYC schools issue

Senators could vote on the health care bill as early as next week.

"This bill will leave 22 million more Americans without health care coverage, including 15 million more Americans by next year alone", The governor noted.

Collins announced Friday that the House amendment to require state Medicaid takeover by 2020 was included in the Senate version of the Obamacare repeal bill.

Cuomo said he's already called on the state's Congressional delegation to do everything within their means to protect NY residents and not support the measures.

Governor Andrew Cuomo's official Twitter account was bombarded with rage-filled tweets from New Yorkers who have had just about enough of the failures of the MTA, which Cuomo oversees through board appointments.

No one is fooled by the same old Washington games.

Other outstanding issues include extending sales-tax rates for most counties and naming the new Tappan Zee Bridge in the Hudson Valley for the governor's late father, Gov. Mario Cuomo. The risky bill strips millions of New Yorkers of their health care in order to pay for tax cuts for the rich. Over 30% of New Yorkers are on Medicaid, and our state's Medicaid program costs over $60 billion each year - that's more than Texas and Florida combined.

Cuomo warned Republican members of New York's delegation who supported would "have to answer to the people" for the impact of the bill. "And at a time when middle class families are already struggling to make ends meet, new taxes will hurt our residents and drag down our economy". However, Chautauqua County's representative in Congress, Republican Tom Reed of Corning, released a statement critical of the governor, calling him a liar and a bully who's done nothing for upstate NY. "I'd like to see Gov. Cuomo run for president owning the highest tax increase in America".
