    “Our work on this caucus is a much-needed breath of fresh air from all of the partisan politics consuming Washington. After meeting with a bipartisan group of Senators last night I am optimistic that there is the will to find a bipartisan fix to our healthcare system, and to find common ground regarding other areas of government in need of reform. Our nation’s healthcare system is incredibly complex, and as we continue to debate systemic changes it is critical that Upstate New Yorkers aren’t left at risk. This understates the importance of these incremental bipartisan solutions and the work of this caucus.” Read more

  • Faso, New York Congressional Delegation Dismiss Cuomo’s Baseless Claims

    "Rather than petulantly threatening to raise taxes on overburdened New Yorkers, Mr. Cuomo should instead cut waste in his own $160 billion budget. High among these items are hundreds of millions each year doled out in special interest favors and side deals to favored groups. Medicaid is intended to help the disabled, the poor and the elderly, but in Cuomo’s New York fully one-third of our population is on this system. Cuomo is driving people from Upstate New York because of high taxes. Instead of supporting our efforts he threatens additional tax increases because he can’t bring his own budget under control. Cuomo spends more on Medicaid than Texas and Florida combined and those states have more than twice New York’s population. Our amendment finally fixes Albany’s 50-year-old mistake of imposing part of these costs on property taxpayers." Read more
