Cuomo Calls Lawmakers Back to Albany for NYC Schools Issue

Rep. Chris Collins of Erie County

Governor Andrew Cuomo's official Twitter account was bombarded with rage-filled tweets from New Yorkers who have had just about enough of the failures of the MTA, which Cuomo oversees through board appointments.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is launching a new voter registration campaign in an attempt to get more New Yorkers out to the polls in next year's congressional elections.

"This bill will leave 22 million more Americans without health care coverage, including 15 million more Americans by next year alone", The governor noted.

"In the letter, Cuomo called NY a "donor state" that pays in "$48 billion more in taxes to the federal government than it receives in federal spending.

Other outstanding issues include extending sales-tax rates for most counties and naming the new Tappan Zee Bridge in the Hudson Valley for the governor's late father, Gov. Mario Cuomo.

Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the USA -led coalition, said: "With every single allegation we will take it and look into it". The White House statement on Monday night was made without forewarning and caught State Department officials by surprise.

The governor noted that more than 2,300 people in NY died of opioid overdoses in 2015 - surpassing the number of lives lost in motor vehicle crashes that year.

"And by including the reckless Faso-Collins amendment, this bill will force every resident of this state to pay a "Faso-Collins Federal Tax" added onto local property taxes to make up the $2.3 billion shortfall created by their proposal", The governor noted.

NY is already a "donor state", contributing $48 billion more in taxes to the federal government than it receives in federal spending.

The idea behind the amendment is to lower property taxes for New Yorkers and have the state shoulder the cost of Medicaid.

If this bill passes, Faso, Collins and other Republican members of New York's delegation who supported it will have to answer to the people of this state for it. Instead, he acts like a bully and threatens a tax hike on middle class families.
