"Okay double check. But i think that's a great idea. I think that again because the problem is that the legislature has not. I think held the governor's feet to the fire on his own reporting deadlines on financial plan reports or met. Its own for that matter. And that's a habit that goes back. A while niceness didn't just start. And i think that again the legislature at could have better could could craft better tools itself for program evaluation and oversight and and and wouldn't regardless of what the whether the governor liked it or not and i think that's No matter who the governor is a very good thing to do in the legislature should do it. I think this is. This is something that i can picture. All the three of us working together. On and i'll throw into the mix because some budget process reforms that maybe we can discuss. 'cause i will say i do not believe that we need to wait for two weeks. Let alone six weeks for enacted budget report. I believe like other jurisdictions including the one New york city that will adopt its budget that we can actually get a financial plan berry soon after the handshake because one actually exists and literally learning six weeks later that there was four billion dollars more almost a year of tax receipts recognize. Six weeks later is just. I would say nothing less than unconscionable and so i'll throw that into the mix of us working on reforms together because we like outcomes but sometimes they depend on the process of accountability transparency and working together. And this is the kind of thing we can. Many new yorkers can rally around you know. I think at one time i had introduced a constitutional amendment to change the state fiscal year. Because we do our budget day for one but april fifteenth. You actually find out more information about your revenue going forward than you have the rest of the year because even though taxes are paid quarterly. That's the big one. And so we tyrone hands by forcing ourselves into deciding budget two weeks before we have perhaps some of the most relevant data points but changing the constitution to change the budget year is also its own set of nightmares. So you don't have to change the constitution to do that. That's statutory oh thank you. You can just do it here we go. I can't remember where it was but talking the state controller.

"Alone in thinking they will so i. I think i agree with ej analysis of the governor and his role in our role. And what happened. I just don't agree with him on where we are in the future. Because i don't think any of us have a crystal ball and when you look at budget projections you know with all due respect. Even the best people out there you try to go out more than three years. You have no idea. We just don't have any idea so you know but otherwise i thought that. Ej's sort of laid it out very coherently and yes. Having the ability to override a veto is not the same as actually pulling together your soldiers and saying now. We're doing it folks. So i don't you know we got some real wins. We thought in the budget. But i think it is announce this right but governor saw where the wind and the currents were pushing us all and said i can do that. I can take credit for it. And by the way is a legislator if i can get things done that i want done and the governor takes credit for it i understand. That's the way the game is played. So if i can return to where you started senator a little before you know whatever your opinion of the spending increase in taxes. There's a lot of money going out the door. Certainly in the next few years and education aid fully fundings on basic education foundation made is a significant amount of money. How should new york state be tracking these dollars. And how will the people residents of new york know that they're getting value and they're getting the results these kids have suffered during the pandemic and we've always many have argued for sound basic education. Are we really going to get education value. And as you said the rental assistance the excluded workers fund that eight hundred million dollars for small businesses in very little pots. That's going to be hundreds of of grants. How are we going to track those. And how do we know we're going to get some value. That's one of the concerns. That i think is very legitimate. I didn't do anything you in your organization. I've always agreed that there are models that other governments use. even your city uses. That new york state made the muse. But we don't make ourselves use them so right if you live here. In new york city you know that there's management reports. You can at multiple times a year and compare outcomes on all kinds of data points. You might like the model. You might not like the model. But there's there's a model and a history and you contract. I think. I've carried a bill off and on for years to do the same at the state level because the just makes sense to have a something to look at and compare where we got Both on spending in program model. The same way as i'm constantly talking about you look at a program you say. Did it work if it worked. Let's expand upon that if it didn't work let's stop and reevaluate what we can do to make it work better so you know. I happened to be on the phone with. Oh tanakh commissioner today. But i wasn't saying it's not working by the way. I actually think the system is working if that over one hundred twenty thousand applications animal ready for emergency ramp. They're going to start paying money out. I think he said in five six weeks Landlords are participating tenants participating the community organizations providing.

"And it's draining revenue out of the state that we should be receiving because they're doing their businesses here. All right let's get interviewed to weigh in a little bit Including you patrick. If you have any analysis or thoughts on this but We stick with us. Senator krueger then come back to you. ej mcmahon. The shifting political dynamics. That have happened in really the last few years But especially so around this budget when the governor was facing so much scandal so many calls to resign So much going on there. But but the the political dynamics had already been shifting since democrats took control of both houses of legislature. Increase that control with with super majorities. How how have the shifting power dynamics in albany impacted the budget decision making processes that. We've we've just seen senator crew. So my bill actually get passed in the senate nowadays. That's once next. I'm not feeling feels pretty good We are passing more progressive democratic bills through both houses. Of course we will see how many making through the governor's desk with or without a veto. That's always the next stage that we are now entering. And i think yes. The winds are shifting Progressively throughout the state of new york in we one democratic seats in traditionally red areas of upstate. New york and redistricting will take place before the next election cycle. And based on census data we lost population upstate gained downstate that traditionally has meant. You're gaining in blue areas. Losing red areas my mic conference is committed to being a statewide party recognizing that it's a big tent and that the issues for syracuse and rochester and buffalo are very different than the issues in the hudson valley or in western new york. And we want to be there Being responsive to everybody's issues even though we understand that will require different politics in different parts of the state. I for example. No not that much about farming although not as little as people think either to be honest and but i recognize that much of our state is agriculture and we have not been doing a good enough job at addressing agricultural issues. I actually went around the state talking about marijuana as good for farmers which farmers agree with. They were very excited about hamp and expansion of marijuana for farming reasons. We wanna make sure that we are being environmentally not just sound stewards but that we are upping the ante on everything. We do from an environmental perspective. Because i don't know about you. But i've been watching the weather in oregon and washington state in california the last week or so. I do really badly one hundred twenty degrees. Say we have to make sure that we are. We are upping the ante on everything we do on climate change and protecting our air and water. Let me ask you let me ask you this before. We come to egypt assessment on this the the power that the legislature exerted over the budget process. Was that significantly more. This time around than in the past was there. Has there been a major shift on that. At the governor in a weakened hand for multiple reasons was not able to push back as much as in the past and the legislature really drove the process. More this time around or or not the case you know..

"Workers a billion in small business and arts and entertainment relief. Whatever one makes of those things or their particulars. And i think you were alluding to senator. There's some real problems with the flow of the rent. Relief money in the application progress process that need to be resolved but put aside all that whatever one makes those whether they were the right amounts or. I don't think anybody argues that there was that nothing should have or could have been done in those areas but the problem with the budget of the reason to be concerned about going forward is not those programs. It's the extent to which directly and indirectly federal aid enabled and even subsidized increases in recurring spending recurring operational spending commitments by the state of new york particularly in the areas. That already command over half our state operating funds budget which is educate twelve education and medicaid. That's the problem There's something like fifteen billion dollars in spending commitments through the general fund which no matter how temporarily funded by federal money. That's the recurring. That's the base of recurring spending. We've made tremendous added commitments that are potentially recurring in both those areas. We had a medicaid deficit developing on the eve of the pandemic as we know in the neighborhood a two billion dollars. The governor had some proposals for resolving it. They became sort of subsumed. An added federal aid. But we are medicaid. Spending is now through an even higher roof than it was before the money that's spent on schools with all due respect what the senator had to say really unless it's specifically for capital. Anything you spend on schools ultimately is recurring commitment to personnel. There's there isn't you. Don't you don't stuff money into the pockets of the kids. I mean there's only one way to spend it other than facilities an indoor curriculum which is always modest. It's basically on staff and that becomes a recurring commitment so we already spent a huge share of our budget on schools and spend more heavily on schools per pupil and by other measures in any state..

"In our safety nets for older new yorkers with endless things that didn't go right in nursing home settings and in various communities. So it's interesting. We look at a budget as a one year time line and then we talk about our we over. Are we under what we think's going to happen in two years. We're never really right because we're just guest debating anyway Things happen really quickly turns out especially when you hit a huge crisis like we just did and you have to be able to sort of chew gum and sing star spangled banner at the same time While you're figuring out what are the best answer. So i viewed this year's budget as an opportunity to look. Where do we think. New york is going in the future. Where do we hope we can get to and will be the best use of the various money that might be one time monies from the federal government versus rethinking revenue and expenditures on an ongoing basis. Just because we used to do it one way doesn't mean that's how we should be doing it going forward break thank you thanks very much a lot to unpack their senator. That was that was amazing. I do wanna come back tracking the money because you've been a leader in performance management legislation independent budget office. And so i do want to come back to. Let's stick on the fiscal for second in turn bring ej into the conversation the future budget gaps. We know about sixteen months ago. Something medicaid was exploding. And at what it's unbudgeted. We saw these. Nine billion dollar budget outs here. We are after the pandemic starting to subside. We're recovering and their tax increases. But the look at those budget gaps. They're almost unprecedented in their size relatives of the budget. There's so much smaller. So what gives is there any problem. Yes i the. There's the problem is even for is is further in the future but larger than ever i it was senator krueger said that one of the concerns is where we going in the future and i think i think that is the key concern that will probably view it in a different way or perhaps have different versions of the future. The governor had a quote at in his summing-up of the budget or his. Celebratory press conference where he said. This budget will set the trajectory of the state for the next ten years. I think that is precisely the problem. I think it does set the trajectory of the state for the next ten years. And i think we're it's where it sets. It is to begin in a couple of years to begin to go a trajectory that goes wildly beyond what the state can sustain a couple of numbers. That are really remarkable And they were updated. I think in the most recent state controllers analysis of the budget if you put together all of the the Stimulus and kovin relief plants..

"Two hundred nine billion dollars. That's the total amount to be spent this year according to new york state's inactive fiscal year. Twenty twenty two budget. It's actually a fairly shocking number. Not just because of sheer size but when considering just six months ago your state still seem to be staring down a four year. Revenue shortfall totaling sixty billion dollars however revenues are turning out to be much stronger than expected and the federal government passed the biggest economic recovery stimulus package since the new deal. And this package included. What may have been the largest state and local government. Relief program in history as a result new york state went from rags-to-riches albeit somewhat fleeting richard since the federal aid isn't forever still with all these funds coming in the state race personal income and business taxes and funds the host of economic relief and recovery programs and posted education.

"Okay. New York state is in a real pickle. And if they're in a pickle other high high tax states are going to be in a similar mess. New York state income take income tax take is dropping rapidly. The leadership Andrew Cuomo Heaton care. He does not care projected income tax revenues for the year just dropped two point three billion dollars. That's after falling five hundred million in December alone. Cuomo. Sees what's going on quote tax, the rich taxed orig- tax rich. We did now God forbid the rich leave. He said he noted the top one percent of New York earners provide forty six percent of the state's personal income tax revenues cited anecdotal evidence that wealthy locals are leaving for lower tax states. The governor blames President Trump and the new tax laws ten thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deduction. You wanna know why Schumer is so upset you hear the sound bites from Schumer, and he's just out of his mind because because Cuomo is burning up his phone screaming at him about how the the state is going bankrupt. The governor blames President Trump and the ten thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deductions. The exodus started long before the salt cap for years. The empire centers EJ McMahon has cited census data that says New Yorkers are leaving for Florida and Arizona and other tax state low tax states. We're the same way here in California. Now Cuomo is talking about cutting back the one hundred and six billion dollars spending plan. He released last month calling the tax shortfall as serious as a heart attack. He's not raising the issue of long-term reforms to address the problem. Neither is Newsom other than vowing to fight the loss of the salt deduction and do everything possible to protect taxpayers, everything except taxing them less. So they don't leave think about that. That's a lesson for us here in California. Then surely people are just going to say I need to live there. I can live anywhere. It's twenty nineteen. I can do my job from anywhere. Colleen in San Diego with thoughts on what the president should be talking about. Colleen, welcome to the program. I would love to. I've never heard anybody. Give any numbers on. People on stamps, which saves the government money left people on planet would save the government money. Seven million people employed that weren't employees before which is all of them, contributing actors, and whatever. Yes, it would be nice. If you ever heard. The numbers that. Saving the government creating for the government. And I think that would be something that people would need to know because it would probably pay for the border wall. No, I think you're you're exactly right. I think this is this is a huge point that you're making the fact that you are pulling people out of poverty, lifting them off of the food stamp rolls. And putting them to work is a huge a huge impact because they're not net drains on the system. They are people who if they have a job now in our earning money, they're putting money into the system. That's the big dirty little secret. I mean, it's look Nathan Lewis over in Forbes has a piece I mean, this this stuff is important because this is going to be the debate that rages between the Cossio Cortez wing of the American political world and regular normal people. Now, she got real snarky over the weekend. Dan, Crenshaw who's a good guy tweet it out and was talking about income inequality and why you can't tax yourself to prosperity. And she came back with a snarky tweet because she's got this little army of of of re tweets out there that worked for her. And she said the patriots players make on average two point one million dollars a year. The majority of them would never see a seventy percent tax rate. And by the way, the seventy percent tax rate is only on income over ten million dollars. So you're only paying seventy percent on income over ten million dollars. You're not paying income below ten million dollars. Well, okay. So how does that then put more money into into somebody's hands who's not making ten million dollars? How does that put money in? To somebody who works at a talk at like you once upon a time did AO see how does that put money in all bartenders pocket? So.
