This week, once again, New York’s Democrats showed themselves to be the party of big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy…
Bill Hammond writes about Medicaid déjà vu in today’s NY Torch Blog.
John Gizzi, a long-time political reporter, has a great article on the what our new chairman, Gerard Kassar, foresees for the Conservative Party.
Reuters hasn’t fired Joseph Menn. Why not? Albeit, Reuters is facing ethical questions after admitting that their reporter (Menn) sat on/withheld/ buried/suppressed the fact that a now famous member of the “Cult of the Dead Cow” was actually Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, running for the US Senate against Sen. Ted Cruz (and a current declared candidate for US President.)
Yancy Roy wrote in yesterday’s Newsday on the top issues in the NYS Budget debate. Upon review, it would seem that one party control did not simplify the budget process and left the NYS Democrats with no one to blame for the morass, but themselves.

Guess who moved to Florida because New York’s taxes are too high . Little does BOC – Blanca Ocasio-Cortez - realize that her daughter wants to raise the federal taxes and if AOC has her way, there will be no escaping the estimated $600,000 per household AOC’s Green New Deal will cost.

Health Insurance costs will increase again if the Governor’s proposal to mandate insurance for IVF is passed in this year’s budget. Based on 2017 costs, a family of four will be forced to pay an additional $234 per year. NY already has the highest insurance costs in the lower 48 states due to the mandates.
According to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez she understands economics because she worked for tips . I wonder, if AOC understands how many extra hours she would have to work (if still employed as a bartender, instead of her current position of preaching congresswoman) in order to pay for her Green New Deal.
Today is the first workday of a new era in the history of the NYS Conservative Party under the leadership of Chairman Gerard Kassar the former Chairman of the Kings County Conservative Party.
