Andrew Cuomo Recovered 0.6% Of Medicaid Budget

   Unquestionably, there is progress. The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages.~ H. L. Mencken

       Luckily for federal taxpayers, the federal government will be prosecuting NY Medicaid fraud, because Andrew Cuomo dropped the ball on such prosecutions while he was Attorney General.  And, although NYC is named in this federal complaint, NY State had to pay it's larger share of this fraud. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement, "The City's alleged conduct has resulted in patients receiving more services through the program than necessary or warranted by their condition, resulting in substantial additional costs to taxpayers,
How much of this Medicaid Fraud will NY State have to refund to the US Government?

    Cuomo was aware of many other Medicaid frauds while Attorney General as reported on this blog and NY State will have to pay the piper (US government) with refunds (at least $1.6 billion are reported on this blog) which Cuomo has ignored in his budgeting.

     Cuomo had lots of publicity for his efforts, "Cuomo, Investigating Medicaid Fraud, Issues Subpoenas to 59 Home Care Agencies," but Cuomo reported, "Cuomo Recovers Over $660 Million in Taxpayer Funds in First Three Years as Attorney General.

     Now, do the arithmetic, NY's $38 Billion dollar budget is "more than twice the national average on Medicaid on a per capita basis," and Cuomo has recovered $660 million in three years or $220 million per year. Or if you take 1/2 of $38 billion or $19 billion dollars as excessive Medicaid in NY, Cuomo has recovered $220 million dollars out of $19 billion dollars or 1.2% of excessive Medicaid in NY or a measly 0.6% of the total NY Medicaid budget. 

        "Illinois lawmakers approved a 66 percent increase to the personal income tax overnight, and soon, your paycheck will be shrinking."    Illinois "tried" and didn't find enough budget cuts.   Andrew Cuomo and his committees headed nowhere "tried."

       Remember the promised 5% cuts for Cuomo's staff.   That didn't apply for, "Richard Bamberger, who has served as director of communications for Andrew Cuomo. According to state payroll records, Bamberger was paid $140,000 in the office of attorney general, and is now up to $169,100 working for the governor’s office."
     It's coming: "I'll explain everything; it's isn't my fault; I tried; more taxes is the responsible thing."

What are the odds, now, for a unpromised tax increase?
