    Cuomo budget: $10 billion deficit cut, no new taxes, layoffs likely

    Andrew Cuomo opens the door to 2016 run - Reid J. Epstein - POLITICO.com

    Cuomo is being credited with a successful legislative session in which he obtained virtually all of his key objectives: ethics reform, a property tax cap, major budget cuts, and gay marriage.

    Your use of notorious and infamous show your already obvious partisan hackery is in full swing, as usual.

    Also, you should read ALL of your linked pieces.. not just the parts you like...

    Reached by No Quarter on Friday, DeCaster was frank about his past troubles.

    In 1994, he was charged with 12 felony counts, and a jury found him guilty of eight of them a year later. All counts had to do with evading income taxes or filing false tax returns.

    "It was a horrible thing to go through," DeCaster said. "But it made us better - better controls."

    And it's not like his company was hiding the information from Walker's team. Werwie said DeCaster's office alerted the governor's advance team to the potential problems on Friday morning.

    DeCaster, who has run the company since his father's death in 1983, placed the blame for the tax problems on a former bookkeeper. But he said he was the one held accountable because his name appeared on the tax returns.

    "It was a mistake, but what the hell? That's what happens," DeCaster said. "It's a small business. One minute you're cleaning the bathroom, and the next minute you're doing this and that. We still wear many hats. We wish to have a lean corporation here."
    DeCaster, 57, said he was a supporter of the governor during the 2010 election but gave him no campaign cash. He said Walker held an event at Badger Sheet Metal during the campaign last year.
    Hardly sounds like an ally.

    To you, anyone who is not in bed with a union is a thug. Just more of your typical partisan hackery showing.

Sure, it can be spent poorly, wastefully, and cannot ALONE solve problems. But having it to work with is better than not having it on the whole. Caring in part means investing in what you care about.

    I thought you would continue the discussion. However, if you want questions, how about these? Do we invest in what matters? Or just needless wars?

    This may sound like a really stupid question, why do you guys seem to dislike Unions so much, and please keep it at a logical answer and keep the hyperbole down to a minimum. I have my thoughts and my reading as to why, but I would rather like to know personal opinions about them.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
