"And when we lose that one shot money from the federal government, we're going to start cutting those as well. And what happens to the New Yorkers who need the most assistance? And the New Yorkers who are middle class who are struggling who are working, if there's one group that can have a second home on Park Avenue and not pay any taxes on it. And there's another group who will literally homeless on the brink of homelessness. That just can't be allowed to exist. What did you what did you think of the governor hoku had in her original policy platform? Some policies for accessory dwelling units allowing those in all areas zone for single-family housing and then a push for more transit oriented development. Those got a lot of pushback, especially from Long Island elect officials, including one of your competitors in this race, Tom swazi, among others, although he's spoken favorably about some of these policies, but saying he wants to do them more localized. And then so she dropped those. Are those two things that you would pursue? Are there any other sort of policies like those that are in your housing plan as well? But what about those two things specifically? I think you have to pursue them. The way it was done just tells me that unfortunately, as in most things, we're more interested in trying to ensure that we get a group of voters to win election than to actually help New Yorkers. And that's the problem. And we see that in the Republican Party in this most acute manner, we're literally allowing people to be massacred by machine guns because people want to make sure they get reelected. Unfortunately, Democratic Party did the same thing. I don't want us to jump out of the frying pan into the fire, but we have to acknowledge some of the things that we do. And that's one of them. Now, this is a conversation that should have been had with those people who have the concerns that you've spoken about..

"Do. And guess what? The Republicans are going to still beat us up about it. They're going to still try to use it as a storyline to kill us in elections because that's really what this was all about anyway. This was a political campaign issue. And he did, he's a phenomenal young senator that people haven't watched him enough. I have the highest respect for him, and he worked so hard. And I can guarantee you he's getting beat up by all sides from the minute he sat down that night on the floor of the Senate. When he was doing exactly what he was asked to do and that we tried to negotiate out painfully painfully, but we did. And the governor felt that that needed to be in her budget. And that was a political decision, not necessarily a budget decision. And then the I is even told after the fact that we've stadium was never intended to be a budget issue, it just all came together at the exact same time. I have not exactly, I think home is a good word for it. But there are suddenly there it was. At the last minute, as was a new amount of money for a capital program yet to be determined for $350 million on Long Island, and that was also a political decision. You didn't have to be born yesterday to know that she's concerned about Long Island and Tom swazi. And I want to help my Long Island colleagues also get reelected. But I'm not sure I would have come up with a $350 million should be determined gift at the last second. But one of those got in the budget. You know, it's interesting that last piece is in a certain sense about accountability. Having an appropriation, a lump sum appropriation, you know, without definition and there's some controller oversight restored, as you said in the budget, some good stuff happened. So you and I will continue to have our great conversation about spending and CPC will always urge more spending restraint or not always. We hope to not have to urge spending restraint, but it's not exactly there how we think it should be. But what we both a 100% agree on is if we're going to spend the money we should get value. We need a management system. We need the data, but not just the data. We actually have to use the data. And you have been a leader in this and have a performance management, I don't know if that's the right name for it a piece of legislation. But right now, for example, on education, $13 billion of federal education aid, if you add up the increase in education aid with fully funding foundational formula, that's going to be a total of $41 billion over four or 5 years added to education. Yet, I don't see a system that's going to that's going to demand results and holds districts and SCD accountable for results. What can we do?.

"Exactly, exactly. So I'm interested in that one. And then I guess I lied. I'll add one more. All sorts of debate around mental health and mental illness related policy. That's obviously coming to a four as we've seen these awful killings of people in New York City, other incidents, questions around just people who need help or not violent. But that's obviously also being debated as well. All right, we could keep going on. Let's just talk politics for one last thought from each of you. As you think about this budget in the political season we're in with the elections coming up. We've touched on this a little bit. The primaries in June, general election in the fall, you know, I go back and forth sometimes about, especially for governor hulk, also true for some of the more moderate to conservative Democrats in the legislature. There's obviously state senators who are concerned about losing their seats. Whether it's whether it's more beneficial for governor hochul politically to sort of appease the left a bit more and sort of undercut, let's say jumani Williams is primary against her or if it's better to go towards the middle, which undercuts Tom swazi is a challenge to her from the right and then also positions her better for a general election, but you'll also need the left in a general election to sort of help her there if she makes it through the primary. So whether it's on what I just said or other things, a final thought on sort of the political season relative to the budget Susan and how you're sort of putting the budget negotiations and deal in the political context here. Well, I guess I'm just sort of pulling a different threads, but I think it depends what happens in the primary is going to be very dependent on whether or not former governor Andrew Cuomo decides to throw his hat in the ring. And I think we're all hearing rumblings that he is going to enter the race. I think it's interesting that we've also heard that he may have some support from people like mayor Adams, like what does that say to a governor hochul who has pretty much given atoms everything that he wants from Albany at this point..

"Brought to you by audible. A wonky tax break for the well off is a bigger problem for Democrats than you'd think. By abbi basalis. In its edible form, salt is used to dry out meat, and its mineral form, it's used to dry out snowy highways, and in its tax form, salt, the acronym for state and local tax deductions that disproportionately benefit well healed taxpayers might sound like a topic bound to dry out conversations. Even senator Bernie Sanders, a key player on negotiations concerning the salt cap and the Democrats flagship, $1.7 trillion social spending and climate build back better package, quipped that salt does not excite most people on the hill. I thought she was the only person in the world who was concerned about salt. He told me, gesturing to another reporter when I asked him for an update on salt's status. But don't be fooled, as Senate Democrats struggle to pass build back better, the debate over salt may be one of the most interesting things happening at the capitol. Whatever form the provision ends up taking could have major financial implications for taxpayers and high tax states. Huge electoral consequences for the Democrats who represent those states and significant political fallout for the party's make the rich pay their fair share political messaging. That's because raising the cap on salt deductions from $10,000 to $80,000 as prescribed in the house past version of built back better, would disproportionately help taxpayers rich enough to benefit from itemizing their federal tax deductions, which is to say the richest 5th of Americans. According to a November analysis from the nonpartisan institute on taxation and economic policy, the higher salt cap would primarily benefit the richest 20% of taxpayers and three fourths of the benefits would go to the richest 5%. Democrats are split over what to do about it. Some Democrats like senator bob Menendez and representative Tom swazi, who recently announced a run for New York governor, support raising the cap on salt deductions as a means to reverse the effect of Trump's 2017 tax bill, which led to tax hikes in blue states. Others like representative Jared golden argue against including raising the cap on the grounds that it paints the Democratic Party as hypocrites. If they raise the salt cap, the second most expensive item in a bill designed to bolster American working families would be a tax break for coastal elites. The standoff leaves Democrats in a damned if they do damned if they don't bind, deliver a windfall to wealthy Americans, or screw over democratic states on the eve of a midterm election where Democrats narrow majorities in both chambers are at risk. The tricky politics of raising the salt cap or not. Republicans created the $10,000 cap on salt deductions as a means to offset the cost of their other tax cuts in the 2017 tax cuts and jobs act. The TCJA reduced the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% and decreased individual tax rates across the board. Because the TCJA nearly doubled the standard deductible, the main losers of the new $10,000 salt deduction cap were well to do people in states with the highest property taxes..

business school Closer look Smith said COVID-19 displaced workers and now supply can't keep up with demand The labor force participation rate for black women has not come back as strongly as let's say

Emily Jones reports Camden county's plan to build a commercial spaceport on an old industrial site has been in the works for years and is currently awaiting federal permits But local critics and the environmental group 100 miles say residents haven't gotten to weigh in enough Megan to roziers is the group's president So their whole issue is that the taxpayers are being strung along by the county

"tom swazi" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics

"We're expecting to build a Blasio to jump into the race, maybe Tom swazi, others, should we expect you to be to be getting in soon and how are you thinking about the sort of politics of this primary that's coming up? Well, we're going to be making an official official statement in the coming days. I don't think there'll be a much surprise, but we're going to be talking about the exploratory committee and officially saying what we're going to be doing. We did try to make it very, very clear as voters were going into the voting booth that this is something we were strong starting considering just so we can be honest. And I think I know from what I've seen that that voters to your earlier question are rejecting politics as usual, they're literally rejecting the status quo. And I believe our message is one that's in line with that. Democrats are failing to capitalize on. That voters don't want the politics as usual. And they don't want the status quo anymore because they realize that it didn't work for them before the pandemic and it certainly didn't work for them now. And Republicans have gotten that message. And they're willing to destroy the country on that message. Democrats haven't gotten that message. Even when it's when it can help heal the nation and keep the nation united, even when it is actually the right message. You know, the vision that we have always put forth is rooted around pushing back on the status quo on behalf of the people of devil representing. I don't think anyone else would have a similar message. I was one who didn't think latisha James was in this race that you would get in. Can you explain to that point about that message that you think is unique to you about pushing back on the status quo? What you think really separates you because it seems like, yeah, go ahead. Happy to have a conversation when we make an official declaration. But I will say again, what I haven't seen exploratory committee, we're not going to we're going to primary focus on the vision that.

Democrats Assess Where They Went Wrong as a ‘Red Tsunami’ Takes Hold in New York

"The fault line is being exposed, the Democrats are doing an autopsy of why they lost in every possible direction from Edward durr to the Virginia governor's race to the lieutenant governor's race in Virginia. How bad was it actually? Well, I just want to. I want to hear, let's just local news report cut 87. This is in New York, Nassau county. Play cut 87 just so you understand what Democrats are dealing with. Even in New York play tape. The shock resonated from the New York suburbs down the eastern seaboard. People are saying there was a red wave, they're wrong. It was a red tsunami. Republican Bruce blakeman declaring victory in the Nassau executive race considered the biggest upset here since Edmund Ghana when seated Tom swazi in 2009. We had the right message. It was taxes. It was crime. People are fed up with a liberal, progressive policies of the other party. This isn't the party of John F. Kennedy anymore. It's the party of AOC and Bernie Sanders, and they're rejecting that. And Joe Biden, they're rejecting that. I said this yesterday to Connor, and I said this to Andrew, I said, if the Democrats continue with this, and if they are unable to inoculate themselves, and remove the tumor, that is woke ism from their party. It is not out of the conversation that if conservatives do their job, and they don't, they're not run by a bunch of feckless morons, which is so often the case, we could end up winning states like New Jersey and Connecticut. We could win 40 out of 50
