Legislators say they are getting "kill the rich" emails as a decision nears in December on extending the Paterson era tax on well to do folks. Governor Cuomo had refused to seek an extension during last springs budget deliberations...However the national dialogue is emphasizing a "balanced" approach which is basicly tax the rich without the death threats.
The 'occupy Wall Street' protests in NYC and elsewhere are ratcheting up debate on the stratification of wealth in our culture.....
Of course, lost in all this is if you kill the rich, it will be harder for them to pay taxes.
Albany politicians get 'time to kill' emails warning of violence if tax on rich expires
