Cuomo blames Trump as $8 billion pulled from NYS for Medicaid program

Billions of dollars in federal funding has disappeared for New York.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says President Donald Trump is to blame for playing politics.

He says $8 billion in grant money was going to help the Medicaid delivery program which benefits the poor and middle class.

That will come with a price tag. This year alone, the cost to New York State will be about $600 million to handle that detail without federal reimbursement.

New York still hasn’t successfully closed the $4 billion budget gap caused by Medicaid overall.

Cuomo says he’s fighting the move, but the White House hasn’t responded. He met with President Trump a couple weeks ago over the future of the Green Light Law, and DMV records, as well.
