Two point three billion dollars as a draft at this point in revenues is as serious as a heart attack governor Cuomo yesterday Kelly. Oops, we're way in the whole two point three billion dollar deficit as you heard him say, and and in typical Andrew Cuomo fashion. He says everything we did economically is right. So he's been in office fist starting his third term. Now. Nothing nothing. He has done has led to this. This is all because he's a democrat all the democrat. That's the part. I love the best. Oh, yeah. We're we're billions of dollars in the hole because I'm a democrat because of the the president's estate local taxes tax deductions being capped at ten thousand dollars. That's why. And he say he says, you know, the rich are leaving New York. Paxton rich tax, the rich tax, the rich, the rich leave. And now, here's but is there nothing to be said for the fact that we have near the combined state and local tax rate for high income New Yorkers is second highest in the nation. Does not our governor and legislature have something to do with the level of taxation around here. Yeah. So here are two thoughts. Number one. If you didn't taxes so much depend on that kind of revenue to fund the state, let me to two billion dollars. What does that tell you right there, and it wouldn't hurt so bad and the other one is how about you cut spending and look a revenue. Elsewhere like, oh, I don't know. Sports gambling that keep kicking the can down the curb on just all easy fixes. They're going for. Yeah. But that's why sports gambling is going to help little legalize weed. He did a toy. He did a complete turnaround on that. Because it's an easy money grab the they don't want to make the tough decisions, which is like really cutting spending. Instead, they're just going to blame somebody else and look for a free throw up a bunch of casinos free money, right allegedly. So in so check this out talking about trying to raise more revenue. I don't believe raising the taxes on the rich. I think that would be the exact worst thing to do. Right now. You also don't have the opera. I don't think you have the ability to reduce taxes on the rich because you would just expand that you're so we can't raise taxes are lower taxes on the rich. All right now what then we'd I guess he he sings two different songs in the past. He said, oh, the whole myth about people fleeing New York, that's that's a load of ball. And then all they only leave because of the weather that's a load about now. He's singing even a difference noticing their leading the Republican leader in the state Senate, John Flanagan said governor Cuomo acknowledged for the first time today that it's not the weather that's causing New Yorkers to leave. It's the incredibly high taxes. So and just one thing just in terms of just. I'm not making a political statement. But I like facts if people are like the one percenters they get away with everything and also only the poor abate taxes here to facts. Fifty percent of the people New York don't pay any tax, okay because they're poor. But they don't pay any taxes and the top one percent of earners account for nearly half of the state's income tax revenue. So the top one percent is paying almost fifty percent of the taxes. Just the fact. Yeah. So it's exactly the opposite of what these people are always pointing to one other one other thing to touch on. The state workers are being urged to be extra careful.
