Gov. Cuomos administration is launching an aggressive plan to sign up thousands of ex-cons for taxpayer-financed Medicaid, which theyll receive once they leave prison, The Post has learned.
Under the initiative, all inmates would automatically apply for the public health insurance for the needy while incarcerated, state Department of Health officials said.
Those who meet the income requirements will be placed on the Medicaid rolls upon discharge.
Critics say the plan offers no incentive for convicted felons to find work after lockup.

WTF is going on here!
And they will be registered to vote.
Catering to criminals after demonizing the law abiding citizens. It is truly bizarro world!
This state is becomming a communist police state run by the worst of the worst
Considering that Tyrant Cuomo’s gun law has recently turned me into a felon, I now appreciate these handouts to convicts! Screw all of you law-abiders!
Me too - under the law I am now a felon too.
F him and every liberal piece of garbage who voted for him. I voted for Paladino
It should be obvious to all at this point that the objective is to put so many fiscal obligations into government at all levels that it simply collapses under its own weight. In a saner era, these politicians would be dangling from lampposts.
Cuomo can rot in hell for all i care. Between his crimes at HUD - the gun stuff, now this? F him!
Status Cuomo’s really trying to run NYS into the ground.
And his political calculation is that this will give him a fighting chance to be elected President in ‘16.
This is what happens after the media in this country is run by imbellices for three generations.
There is probably a secret part of the plan to provide “assault weapons” with “high-capacity ammunition clips” to those released so that they will be able to pick up their occupation where they left off. Wouldn’t want to inconvenience these new democrats, would we?
It is becoming obvious that andrew cuomo is completely insane.
Ask anyone who worked for Cuomo while he was at HUD and they will tell you what an “end of lower intestine orifice” he is. The guy is beyond stupid. Actually he is an idiot savant with him being an idiot in everything but politics. Were it not for his father the guy could not get a job parking cars.
He and his mafia, now the the prez election is over, are going full steam ahead to capture the progressive votes for 2016.
This is a crazy state
