Here’s what Rudy’s press office had to say back in 1998:

Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani today congratulated Senators Alfonse D’Amato and Daniel Patrick Moynihan on the crucial roles they played in protecting $2.6 billion in Medicaid funding for New York City and State. On June 25, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 6-3 margin, struck down as unconstitutional the Line Item Veto Act adopted by Congress in 1996. The decision protects New York City hospitals against a loss of federal Medicaid funds that could have been as great as $2.6 billion.
