Gov. Cuomo

New York Governor Receives Backlash for Sacking a Catholic Charity

A self-professed Catholic, Cuomo said that the state was entitled to $3 billion of Fidelis' earnings since the Catholic non-profit received most of its income from state-sponsored programs, including "Medicaid managed care, Child Health Plus and the Essential Plan, as well as Medicare Advantage and commercial ObamaCare coverage." New York's Catholic bishops were preparing to use the money from the sale for a charitable organization to provide health care for the poor.
