New Yorkers get more government aid per person from social programs than residents of any other state, a USA TODAY analysis finds.
The state’s Medicaid program is the most expensive in the nation, driving the average cost of all government benefits in New York to $9,442 per person.
New York ranks 28th in Social Security payments per person and 9th in Medicare benefits. But the spending on Medicaid, the health program for the poor, is far above that in any other state. Only Washington, D.C., spends more.
New York spent $2,903 per person on Medicaid in 2010 — a third more than any other state. The U.S. average is $1,364. Nevada spent the least: $666 per person.
Steuben County’s Assemblyman Phil Palmesano is creating an Agriculture Task Force.

When the president of the Chicago teachers union commented that she might buy boxing gloves before Jean-Claude Brizard’s arrival in the city, local education advocate Howard Eagle emailed her a friendly suggestion.
“We told her ‘Go ahead, don’t wait. You’re going to need them,’” said Eagle, a parent and a retired City School District teacher and a critic of Brizard’s tenure as Rochester’s superintendent.
Now, comments such as those have Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy, former mayor of Rochester, firing back in defense of Brizard, named new CEO of Chicago’s school system last week.
Duffy appeared on one Chicago television station over the weekend defending Brizard and sent a guest editorial to the Chicago Tribune, which was published Monday afternoon. Duffy also provided a copy of the editorial to the Democrat and Chronicle.
