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?

I notice that DeBlasio is begging for more federal money for New York City as well — or else (he threatens) he’ll have to lay off thousands of workers “from all agencies.” Including the police whom he’s already crippled, I imagine. But surely not the multiple diversity-and-inclusion agencies. Or the Illegal Alien Food Banks.
Time to make the leftids pay for their stupid crazy policies.
One rather amazing aspect of reality, is that one’s birds always come home to roost. The evil of this world, invariably, from their own doom, by their shortsightedness. They forget that the Creator has given humans free will. People can, and do, leave, when the local circumstances become unfavorable.
Sew the wind, reap the whirlwind.
Hosea 8:7 is one of my new favorite verses.
It’s Escape from New York all over again, only without Kurt Russell.
I saw him say this on the news – he was pathetic. He will have you over and cook for you if you move back. Let’s see, the rich would pay about $10,000 a year more in taxes to return – that is one high priced meal the Gov is tempting them with 🙂
You took the words right out of my mouth.
I wonder if he’d expect them to leave a tip?
They’d have to take out the trash since the Sanitation Department is probably being downsized along with the other agencies.
As much as people talk about removing qualified immunity of police, they need to remove restrictions of these politicians getting personally sued for the terrible job they do in hurting people
They’ve always been very careful to protect themselves from being held accountable.
