Statement by State Chairman Gerard Kassar on the NYS Budget

Brooklyn, NY – The democratic-controlled NYS Legislature, along with Governor Andrew Cuomo, are on the verge of passing an historically high spending document that increases spending and taxes to the highest levels ever in New York State.  These significant increases will impact all New Yorker’s, especially New York’s working families.

New York’s proposed budget has gone from bad to unsustainable, while the progressive-left cheers and says it will help working families in New York State.  Nothing could be further from reality.

New York’s working families need jobs to be able to keep working; by adopting new increased taxes on those who are wealthy and on corporations, NYS Government is encouraging an even greater exodus from New York by those who can leave and forcing corporations to escape to states that are tax-friendly, thereby taking New York jobs with them.

New York’s poor fiscal management, by the supermajority of democratic elected officials, is a flawed and erroneous way to uphold their oath to those who put them in office.  Shame on them.
