Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on New York State Budget

Brooklyn, NY – “Kathy Hochul’s monstrosity of a budget will ensure that New York remains the highest taxed state in the union. By using one-shot federal revenues to fund growth in state operations, New Yorkers will be perennially on the hook for the Democrat’s exorbitant spending, which will now exceed $220 billion — about the size of Florida’s and Texas’s combined budgets, states with greater populations than New York.

“The Governor also failed to achieve real changes to the ill-advised bail reform laws that have spurred a statewide crime wave. Judges must be able to consider potential criminality at sentencing. Anything less than is worthless window dressing.

“Governor Hochul pretended to be a moderate. This budget proves she is anything but. New Yorkers needed tax relief and got a Titanic budget boondoggle instead. Thankfully it’s an election year.”

Governor.  Her rose-colored glasses must be working overtime.

DOJ Warns State AGs Not to Block Access to Gender Affirming Care,  This, as far as I am concerned is overstepping their (DOJ) authority…if the person is of legal age, ok, however, if the person is under the legal age to sign contracts, get married, buy alcohol or cigarettes, get a tattoo or piercing, or a a myriad of other things, then the parents are the only ones who have a say what their child does to their body; NOT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.   Far too many of our youth are confused about this — the indoctrination begins as a very early age — and any life altering changes made when a person isn’t old enough to truly understand what the long term results will be is the responsibility of their parents.

Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar 

Brooklyn, NY – “The Democratic Party got caught today being undemocratic. Its attempt to rig elections and to shut down political dissent in New York through outrageous gerrymandering was fortunately thwarted in New York State Supreme Court.

“Just a glance at these lines revealed them as ridiculously tainted. Now the Democrats must go back to the drawing board and have new lines ready in less than two weeks. We applaud the court’s decision, and urge them to keep an eye on every pencil line the Democrats draw over the next 11 days. They are not to be trusted.”

The First Amendment reads:  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.  It does not indicate that the press can censor news to fit its agenda.  This needs to be investigated; Americans must demand the truth as to how it impacted voters.
