Andrew Cuomo’s Billion Dollar Tax Hike Hypocrisy
During Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2011 inauguration he made a promise to all New Yorkers. In his speech, Governor Cuomo told New Yorkers that they would face “no new taxes, period”:
“Mr. Cuomo began his first term by laying out an economic agenda that would limit taxes and spending. He campaigned on a promise of not raising taxes — ‘I say no new taxes, period,’ he declared on the day of his inauguration — and he repeated that message many times this year. At times, Mr. Cuomo found himself more closely aligned with Republicans than Democrats.”
New Yorkers already knew that Governor Cuomo’s word meant little. Today is just further proof of that sad fact.
