President Trump continues to succeed where President Obama failed, but he’s hindered by a “do-nothing” Congress.
Michael Goodwin writes in today's NY Post that it is a shame top democrats are too afraid to challenge Mayor de Blasio. He writes, "It’s the shame of New York Democrats that they can’t produce a dynamic challenger against a lackluster mayor who spent the last year under criminal investigation."
Governor Cuomo wanted to change the name of Start-Up NY, but Governor Cuomo didn't get his way. The legislator's extended the program for two years, despite its poor record.
As more and more people have a chance to review the NYS Budget, there is a far more grumbling than in previous years.. You know you have problems with a "progressive" program when the NY Times questions if it was well thought out.
It is Official (Photo Credit: AP Photo Evan Vucci): The judge becomes Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch! Congratulations to Justice Gorsuch and to President Donald J. Trump who understood how important it is to have men of his stature on the US Supreme Court. Chairman Long had this to say in a recent interview on Justice Gorsuch. Now that Associate Justice Gorsuch is settled, it is time to start filing other vacancies in the federal courts.
It’s up to President Trump to clean up President Obama’s mess in Syria, and the President has taken decisive action to do just that – and in doing so, he has struck a blow against the Obama Administration’s feckless foreign policy. I’m sure you’ll all join me in praying for our nation as these tensions escalate, and especially for our men and women in uniform who sacrifice so much so America can lead the world.
Tom Precious, writing in the Buffalo News, has a good update as to what is and isn't in the NYS Budget and what is still not resolved. State of Politics reported on the NYS Budget this way in their morning memo.
It appeared NYS has a budget, but, the details were still murky. We know that the millionaires tax remains in place for two more years and that the Raise the Age issue was agreed to, but the latest information says Raise the Age is back on the table according to this report filed by State of Politics at 12:43 PM.
Even the NY Daily News editors reached a correct decision regarding the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch, albeit some of their reasoning is faulty. "Unwilling to register their disapproval of the eminently qualified Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch via a “no” vote on the Senate floor — a vote they’d lose, with some of their own voting “aye” — Democrats are hell-bent on launching an endless talkathon to filibuster his nomination to death." It isn't often that we agree with the NY Daily News but they are right when the say "Wrong move, Chuck."
This week is shaping up as a busy news week both in Washington and Albany. Albany has not budget, not surprising, since so many components of the proposed NYS budget do not belong in it as they are policy issues.
The Investigative Post finalizes its series with an article lamenting how difficult it is to analyze the results of subsidies to companies. In other words, government makes it difficult to assesses if the investment is a good one for taxpayers, probably because most times it isn't.
The third installment of Investigative Post deals with the lackadaisical manner of vetting subsidy seekers. It is astonishing how many companies (that do well financially) manage to obtain taxpayer's dollars to stay in New York. I've yet to see the major studios listed, but we do have two more installments.
The NY Post opines that "sanctuary" policies shouldn't protect thugs, we agree and go a step further to say "sanctuary" policies are against the US Constitution. People who have come to American legally do not need "sanctuary" policies as there are numerous government agencies assisting legal immigrants and refugees.
