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."

Jimmy Vielkind writes in PoliticoNY that the Extender gives Cuomo nearly $1.8 billion for economic development projects.  (Even after START-UP NY continues to have less than stellar results.) It appears that Gov. Cuomo is no longer in a rush to finish the budget, but did say there is a conceptional agreement on it.  (We've been there before.)  The State of Politics has more on the current budget morass.  The Poughkeepsie Journal has even more on the conceptional agreement here that apparently agrees to extend the millionaires tax for two years.    Bill Hammond's article explains how the two bills already passed are more than just extenders.
