    In  his  remarks,  Senator Skelos discusses the Democrats’ failure to
    conduct  a public budget discussion or include Republicans in negotiations,
    their  rejection  of  Republican  proposals  for Medicaid reforms to reduce
    spending; the fact that the budget extender bill includes Medicaid spending
    that makes up about 40 percent of the overall state budget; and the lack of
    an overall fiscal plan for the state budget.
