Do you think he is just kidding ? Just saying we are in dire shape fiscally just to get our attention.....Governor Cuomo was in Poughkeepsie yesterday giving Mid-Hudson New Yorkers "The Speech".
The Governor also is not commenting on reports he plans to propose the laying off of up to 15,000 state workers.
While there is outrage in the MSM over layoffs, believe it or not there are many people who look at reports of these cuts and say "good."
These are the people who own or work in small business and whose outlook is not skewed by being married to a teacher. They probably voted for Crazy Carl and don't get quoted in the the news media.
These are people who have gotten used to dealing with the "pain" of doing business in the nation's Tax Mecca.
They are decent, compassionate people who certainly don't wish ill will on anyone, but they have seen their own ranks decimated and can't work up the requisite crocodile tears over an overhaul of state government.
New York's business owners have felt their ears perk up as Andrew Cuomo talks tough...But so far its talk and we will see what the real agenda is in a couple of weeks. Governor Cuomo has asked the state to reserve judgement on his plan until its released.
We should provide him that courtesy.
‘Short-Term Pain’ For ‘Long-Term Gain’
