TAXES that sap economic growth.
No wealth creation (making things from raw material) work for crafts workers, for engineers, for laborers, etc.; aka manufacturing.
NY politicians hate manufacturing, they drive it away.
NY politicians hate making the state thrive, no gas production here, just over the line in Pennsylvania.
The "diversity" buzz word is meaningless; people live where they can work in real jobs, afford and want to live.
Create the economic environment for people to stay here. View Comment
Langone is a Progressive, he is a taker that is why he supports the likes of Cuomo - he gives your efforts and creativity to others for personal fame.
I hope Cuomo wins big time so he can finish off New York State then we can start with a clean slate. His NYC buddy deBlasio needs free reign so he can complete his mission of destruction.
The likes of Langone will flee. We will be rid of them, then real people can rebuild based on the sound principle of getting rewarded for what you earn or create without "state welfare".
No welfare for businesses or individuals, just a sound tax system, no deductions. Flat tax, you file on a 3"x 5" index card.
Get rid of all the hidden taxes and sales taxes.
Get rid of all the Lobbyists "gimmes".
Deductions and gimmes are the "I own you, so vote for me" currency of political hacks.
How many government jobs could we be free of ?
DrTate - that is the goal of our Governor, the Assembly and the Senate.
All they want are government jobs and Wall Street Bankers like Goldman, Merrill, JP Morgan who feed ($) their political coffers.
Look at the dealerships (jobs) they killed in the fake bankruptcies of GM and Chrysler. Who won the Unions, who lost you, me (our tax money for the buyouts) and the Bondholders.
Face it only us saps who cannot leave will bear the burdens of their socialist methods-

Which member(s) of the Assembly introduced or proposed the Bill ?
How will that Assembly person benefit or who has contributed money to that person's election campaign ?
Where does Speaker Sheldon Silver on this matter ?
Where is our Governor Cuomo on this matter or is he ($) compromised too ? View Comment
Just wait until the Cuomo - Clinton - Silver - deBlasio Crew starts putting the hate on.
Rob will not stand a chance when the media acolytes pick up the hate spouted by the Crew.
The big money NYC Republicans are supporting Cuomo so why bother Rob.
Yes ! I have a Bridge.........
Whatever happened to the Trucker Driver whose vehicle she struck or did he cause the accident ?
I read he lost his CDL for awhile, then his job and got convicted for leaving the scene. If he were a Kennedy he would have been cleared ASAP. The me-me-me, merciless Kennedy Clan strikes once again. View Comment
Imagine if this were a private enterprise our beloved lens / camera hound aka Senator Charles Schumer would be yelling and screaming for a public hearing. Then all the senior managers must be fired, put on trial for not doing their jobs.
Alas this is a GOVERNMENT enterprise that must be protected. As so many other government failures and frauds of late. View Comment
Ever wonder why Unionized states like New York are in deep financial trouble, without real jobs that create wealth by making things people want to buy.
Businesses leave or refuse to come here unless they are bribed like our current NY "ten year" no tax program. What happens after ten years - bye, bye.
You and I paid big bucks to have NBCs "Late Show" actors to stay in New York. Good jobs; who pockets your tax money - the fat cats at COMCAST ?
Wake up, smell the roses we are going down the tubes. View Comment
So let us see how vigorously they will go after the drug dealers who killed this young person.
Maybe as vigorously as the NYC actor's killers ?
Think all the NYC TV stations will go on about this young man as they should ? View Comment
So lets see - poor road conditions so hold back on Mass Transportation, government at work.
Now if this were a Private Industry then Senator Schumer with Governor Andrew Cuomo would be ranting and raving, demanding money for his favorite charity - themselves.
Wow what a wonderful condition ! A government that takes and takes but somehow can not serve. View Comment
Our County Executive needs to remain at his Post to continue making Westchester the envy of New York State.
This will help prove that Mr. CUOMO's POLICIES are NOT BENEFICIAL to New York or it citizens. View Comment
We must recall that the Governor has no intention of ever talking about parents concerns.
He is a typical political hack who says to citizens SHUTUP ONLY I KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU.
Citizens need to remember this November when his name is on the ballot.
Change comes in the voting booth.
I doubt the NSD will publish this, it did not publish my comments on the Ryan waiver by the political hack class? View Comment
Ryan getting this waiver is typical of political hacks taking care of themselves, telling the public to sit down and shut up.
This CREATED job at $190,000 plus BENEFITS each year plus a fattened upped taxpayer pension the Board of Legislators could have created three $60,000 a year medical positions in the hospital that care for people. Not a job that lets one favored person continue to wallow at the public trough.
New York's political leaders, starting with the Governor DO NOT care about the public good only what they can take from the public for their own wallets.
What a disgusting shame.
I asked Legislator Peter Harckham not to vote for the waiver, being the good "I need to get mine at a future date" ignored me, he did not even have the courage to attempt to justify his actions. His fellow traveler Mr. Gelfarb gave a typical political hack answer of saying Ryan had it coming. Gelfarb must be in for a big fat hack ton of free money or things too. View Comment
