GOVERNOR ANDREW M. CUOMO STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS | Governor Andrew M. CuomoAnd the large government we have is all too often responsive to the special interests, over the people of the State of New York. The proof is in the pudding. And New Yorkers are voting with their feet. Two million New Yorkers have left the State over the past decade. What does this say? It says we need radical reform, it says we need a new approach, we need a new perspective and we need it now. We must use this moment to transform our government.
"what made new york the empire state was a not a large government complex, it was a vibrant private sector that was creating great jobs"
"at the heart of this state is business"
"we have to relearn the lesson our founders knew and we have to put up a sign that says new york is open for business, we get it, and this is going to be a business friendly state"
"we have to hold the line on taxes for now and reduce taxes in the future, new york has no future as the tax capital of the nation, our young people will not stay, our business will not come"
"put it simply, the people of this state simply cannot afford to pay any more taxes, period"
"we have to start with an emergency financial plan to stabilize our finances, we need to hold the line and we need to institute a wage freeze in the state of new york, we need to hold the line on taxes, we need a state spending cap and we need to close this $10 billion gap without any borrowing"

point being---just how far, realistically, can some tax the greedhead movement go?
when probably the most successful democrat leader in the nation is standing in the way?
reality trumps fantasies, francis
barack hussein the slasher obama---i will raise capital gains taxes for purposes of fairness to secretaries WHETHER OR NOT revenues increase or decrease
because, after all, as the candidate clearly says, "that MIGHT happen...
"or it MIGHT NOT"
either way, there's not enough revenue in the milky way to make good on 5.3 trillion dollars per year
if something isn't done NOW to fundamentally restructure our budgets, then our big 3 federal entitlements (as well as state pensions) will simply cease to exist as we know them for our next generation
party on, progressives
Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
