GOV. THREATENS UPSTATE FAMILIES WITH A 26% INCOME TAX HIKE

A Statement from Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) on the federal plan to shift Medicaid funding solely to New York State

            “Gov. Cuomo’s shameless threat to New York families is absolutely offensive. New York State needs to join the rest of the nation and pay for Medicaid instead of leveraging the program on the backs of homeowners and local governments. We have an obligation to cover our most vulnerable but not in a ‘cradle to grave’ fashion by which our state offers more ‘optional’ benefits than any other state which increases the cost dramatically. We should be encouraging people and businesses to come here for the job opportunities and not because we promise these taxpayer-funded handouts.”
