Andrew Cuomo is having a full-blown meltdown over the thought of providing property tax relief to Upstate and Long Island homeowners by covering $2.3 billion in Medicaid costs in 2020. But there’s a slight issue: Cuomo’s own budget projects a $2.1 billion surplus in 2020 (see page 10). And included in that surplus is $445 million ...
Matt Cartwright must not be a fan of affordable health care plans for his constituents. He recently voted against a bill to allow small businesses to band together across state lines to negotiate with health insurers, giving them the bargaining power to broker lower prices and expand health plan choices for Americans. We’ll just chalk ...
Hey there – Andrew Cuomo is attacking John Faso for supporting the shift of Medicaid costs from NY counties to Albany. Has Cuomo forgotten that he’s made a career out of jamming unfunded mandates down the throats of local governments? “Andrew Cuomo’s in full meltdown realizing his rabid zealotry in imposing unfunded mandates on cash-strapped county governments may ...
Tom Suozzi apparently thinks things are going great at the VA.

That means Carol started immediately complaining instead of fully digesting the bill, sleeping on it, getting input from her constituents, speaking to advocacy groups, ...
Earlier today, Nancy Pelosi’s campaign arm announced a list of Democrats it vows to protect this election cycle. Notably absent from that list is NRCC target Matt Cartwright in PA-17. Cartwright only got 53% of the vote despite outspending his opponent $836,460 to $31,056. And Trump won the district by over 10 points. Still, the ...

abusive analogy
| March 1st, 2017

Does he think Trump voters in his district are the same as females in an abusive relationship who refuse to see the light? We’re sure the 163,734 ...
Nancy Pelosi literally said that Sanctuary Cities make Americans safer last night in her Town Hall. Does Sean Patrick Maloney agree that breaking the law makes us safer? We’re sure voters in his suburban NYC district would love to know.
