Gov. Andrew “America was never that great” Cuomo is pleading with wealthy residents to come back to New York City so they can pay New York City taxes (https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/510829-cuomo-calls-on-wealthy-to-return-to-new-york-city-you-got-to-come-back). He probably doesn’t have to worry about getting out of the way of a stampede.
“The rich” have fled NYC for the Hamptons, the Hudson valley, and Connecticut. If they stay there, they will have lower taxes. They also won’t have to worry about crazy communist Mayor Bill de Blasio releasing violent criminals 15 minutes after they’re arrested. Cuomo didn’t mention it, but the city’s crime rate has shot up into the stratosphere as a result of the city government’s commitment to make life easier for criminals. I know that sounds like a mere rhetorical flourish; but unhappily it’s true.
“Progressives” have urged Cuomo to hammer “the rich” with a new wealth tax; but in one of his lucid intervals, the governor realized that that was hardly likely to lure them back.
AND he said he wants the federal government–that would be you and me, and everyone else who doesn’t happen to live in New York–to pour money into his state to defray budget deficits.
Dude! You bragged about being a “sanctuary state” and flouting our immigration laws–and now it’s time for you to pay the price. Not one penny more, sunshine, until you Democrat clowns start enforcing the laws. And stop releasing thugs and robbers! Stop acting crazy!
Sheesh, you really wonder why people are high-tailing it out of New York? Really?
