  • Many of the donations for Gov. Cuomo's “New York Fights Back” campaign have come from major unions

Cuomo and de Blasio were joined by State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and State Assemblyman Carl Heastie to call on medical professionals, activists and their fellow elected officials to fight the bill over the next few weeks.

The congressmen have said that their amendment reduces New York's highest-in-the-nation property taxes, which are collected by counties in part to fund the government health care program. New York's Democratic leaders Monday reminded the room full of hospital workers and union employees that the legislation bill could be disastrous for the state economy, gutting hospitals and jeopardizing some 1.2 million healthcare jobs.

The New York Attorney General's Office says it will file a lawsuit if the House or Senate health care bill is signed into law. "And we will sue - because this is about New Yorkers' health, their lives, and their basic rights".

Schneiderman, who has regularly sparred with President Trump, also knocked the proposed changes, saying it would be the latest fight he would take against the Trump administration.

"This bill isn't simply unconscionable and unjust - it's unconstitutional".

The second provision would bar federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

Schneiderman and Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement at an event at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, encouraging members of New York's Congressional delegation to stand against the bill.

"More and more people are - as the young people say - 'woke, '" de Blasio said. It would end $2.3 billion of annual federal Medicaid money that goes to NY in 2020 unless the state stops requiring upstate counties to contribute to the program.

De Blasio, who is up for re-election this fall, made a rare appearance with Cuomo at the rally to rail against the health-care bill.

"Faso and Collins, these are the guys who used to be on the corner with the card game", Cuomo said.
