Statement by New York Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Budget Address
January 21, 2020
“After 10 years as governor, in his 11th budget address, Governor Andrew Cuomo finally admitted that high tax-and-spend government harms New Yorkers.
“Conservatives could have told him that on day one. So could the more than one million former New Yorkers who have fled the state under his stewardship.
“Now the Governor is facing a $10 billion budget deficit — while the national economy soars — and his nebulous solutions and utter lack of detail in this address show the same leadership deficit that created the giant hole in the first place.
“All we got today was more empty talk. It will be up to a Democrat-led legislature to fill in the blanks. Hold onto your wallets.”
