ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino says he wants to cut the Medicaid health care program for the poor in New York by $20 billion.
Paladino says the nearly $52 billion program which has grown to be the most expensive in the nation because of optional services approved by lawmakers at the urging to the powerful health care lobby.
He says Monday he wants to eliminate services, fraud and abuse to bring spending in line with California, which spends half as much per capita as New York.
Andrew Cuomo's plan is similar to his fathers'. Invite more of his supporters to New York to get free services at the expense of hardworking taxpayers like yourself. Cuomo is being backed by the same crooks in health care that got us in this mess. They have no incentive to get us out of it. In fact, they stand to benefit by keeping the status quo. On November 2, you have a choice as to which plan is better. The rent is too damn high!
