Was Cuomo MIA With A $1.2 Billion Per Year Fraud: Was It The Peter Principle, The Dilbert Principle, Or Cuomo's TARP?
"The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced the probe Thursday"
"Medicaid payments to nine state institutions for the developmentally disabled, after the Poughkeepsie Journal revealed the facilities had reimbursement rates of $4,556 per day for each of 1,400 residents."
"State officials have said the actual cost of care is only about one-third the rate, and that much of the $1.2 billion in federal matching funds every year supports other state programs for the disabled."
Where was Cuomo and his office? This is fraud, because State Officials say it costs only a third of the claimed $ 1.2 billion amount or $400 million a year. Are Cuomo and his office asleep, incompetent or covering up (the CuomoTARP)?
Has Cuomo risen to his "Peter Principle" level of incompetence? Or, has Cuomo risen from his failures at HUD under the Dilbert Principle to Attorney General? Or has Cuomo kept his TARP covering up this immense fraud by State employees and political hacks?
Andrew, since "specifically, the federal agency ... pays half the rate as part of a 50-50 state-federal match, where is NY State's $1.2 billion dollar per year share going? And how much of the state's share is being shifted onto Local County Tax bills? How can State employees committing such fraud be retained and not prosecuted?
