Many New Yorkers and others considered Governor Mario Cuomo an eloquent speaker. The Huffington Post called Mario Cuomo one of the greatest orators in American History. Governor Andrew Cuomo has been trying to emulate him all his life; he does not even come close. Last week’s response to an established Albany reporter may have damaged his quixotic national quest to accomplish what his father did not crave. Yesterday, Governor Andrew Cuomo called the President’s tax bill “economic civil war.” This from the man who proudly pits different regions in New York State against one another to be awarded coveted economic grants (that normally do not produce the promised results.) Eloquent, hardly. Political hyperbole, absolutely.
The NY Post editorial opined that Governor Andrew Cuomo (and others who fall back on Bill Clinton’s prowess for fundraising) have a Bill Clinton problem.
The projected NYS Budget deficit, currently estimated at $4.4 B, indicates that this will be a difficult year for all the special interest lobbyists who are always whining they need more money. The cupboard is bare bones bare; be prepared for cuts not handouts, despite the promises being aired for political gain. This idea would put even more small business out of business, creating an atmosphere where no one is working – or paying taxes -- a catch-22 situation.
The Citizens’ Budget Commission has a few questions for the Governor regarding the upcoming budget. One thing I have not come across yet is, with interest rates slowly climbing, how much more will that cost taxpayers and how can New Yorkers possibly incur more debt.
The Daily Signal is reporting that arrests of MS-13 Members, Associates are up 83% Under Trump. This is great news. Here is what President Trump said, “To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you: We will find you. We will arrest you. We will jail you. We will throw you the hell out of the country,” speaking at the graduation ceremony for the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
Here is Governor Andrew Cuomo’s response to the M-13: Let’s use $15 M of taxpayer’s money to enroll at-risk youth in social and educational programs. Seriously, Governor? Do you really think social and educational programs are going to stop this?
As we noted last week, empathy does not produce good policy.
Another hypocrite the left leaning media love and fail to fully expose.
But sometimes some pf the left leaning media due their best to expose the evil that needs to be exposed
