If there is one thing we might all agree upon in this holiday impeachment season, it’s that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has bungled the state budget.
Halfway through the year, the state is predicting a $6.1 billion shortfall.
But what you really need to understand is that this is not due to an economic downturn or reduction in revenues. In fact, state revenues are $428 million above what was projected in the first quarter.
Gov. Cuomo needs to addresses Medicaid shortfalls immediately.
The problem is the rising cost of Medicaid, and according to the Empire Center, everything the governor has done to address Medicaid costs over the past few years has made things worse.
