Cuomo plays NY for Suckers

Scotty: There’s an old, old say­ing on earth, Mr. Sulu: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.”

Chekov: I know this say­ing. It was invented in Russia.

I keep hear­ing on Morn­ing Joe how Andrew Cuomo is mak­ing NY more busi­ness friendly. I’m hav­ing trou­ble rec­on­cil­ing that with this story out of NY:

The $2 bil­lion income tax increase isn’t due to expire until 2014, but that’s an elec­tion year. The pro­posal being con­sid­ered in closed-​door talks was first revealed last week by The Asso­ci­ated Press cit­ing offi­cials close to the talks who spoke on the con­di­tion of anonymity because they weren’t autho­rized to divulge the effort.

Hold on a minute. A $2,000,000,000 income tax increase? That can’t be so. This is the state of Andrew Cuomo, the model of mak­ing NY busi­ness friendly, famed Con­ser­v­a­tive Joe Scar­bor­ough said so. He cer­tainly doesn’t have his fin­ger­prints on this …

On Sun­day night, Sen­ate Repub­li­can leader Dean Ske­los said extend­ing the income tax on mil­lion­aires is Cuomo’s idea.

…ok maybe he DOES but appar­ently I’m look­ing at this the wrong way. this isn’t really a tax increase, it’s a TAX CUT.

Cuomo then passed a sup­pos­edly tem­po­rary tax on high-​earning New York­ers that was due to end next year, but now, CBS 2’s Mar­cia Kramer reported Thurs­day, that’s not going to happen.

There will be an exten­sion of the sur­charge set to expire next year,” Cuomo said Thursday.

And when asked at if that wasn’t hyp­o­crit­i­cal, given his prior no-​new-​taxes posi­tions, Cuomo tried to paint the tax hike as a tax cut, since the bud­get also pro­vides the mid­dle class with a $350 child tax rebate.

Some taxes go up, yes, and oth­ers go down and the net is they go down. That’s why it’s a tax cut,” Cuomo said.

Let me get this straight, if I have a super­mar­ket and I raise the price on meat if I drop the price on cook­ies I can call the prince increase on meat a price drop because cook­ies cost less? Are New York­ers really falling for this?

I’m going to give the last word to Chris Christie who said this about democ­rats and tax increases last year on the cam­paign trail:

35 years ago we didn’t have an income tax in NJ no income tax like right here in NH, we had no income tax and Gov­er­nor Bren­don Byrne, a demo­c­rat said: If you just give me a small income tax, a lit­tle one, I will lower your prop­erty taxes, we had the high­est prop­erty taxes in Amer­ica back in 1977 so 35 years later, what have we got? We’ve STILL got the high­est prop­erty taxes in Amer­ica and the income tax that started at 2% under gov­er­nor Byrne is now 9%”

Any­one who believes or says he believes a tem­po­rary tax hike pro­posed by a demo­c­rat is actu­ally tem­po­rary is either a fool or a con man.

Hey lets elect this Cuomo guy president!

Update: Of course you have a much bet­ter chance of lower taxes if you are bring­ing a cer­tain tele­vi­sion show that they gov­er­nor likes.

Next week is Good Fri­day based on DaTip­Jar this one is not

If I can find 14 peo­ple to kick in that $20 to get that $300 weekly pay­check tit would be bet­ter fri­day, and if I got at least 5 peo­ple then I’d beat my worst week ever which is something.

So if you’d like fell free to hit DaTip­Jar below, unlike Cuomo you know what you’re buying.

I keep hearing on Morning Joe how Andrew Cuomo is making NY more business friendly. I’m having trouble reconciling that with this story out of NY:

The $2 billion income tax increase isn’t due to expire until 2014, but that’s an election year. The proposal being considered in closed-door talks was first revealed last week by The Associated Press citing officials close to the talks who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to divulge the effort.

Hold on a minute. A $2,000,000,000 income tax increase? That can’t be so. This is the state of Andrew Cuomo, the model of making NY business friendly, famed Conservative Joe Scarborough said so. He certainly doesn’t have his fingerprints on this …

On Sunday night, Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos said extending the income tax on millionaires is Cuomo’s idea.

…ok maybe he DOES but apparently I’m looking at this the wrong way. this isn’t really a tax increase, it’s a TAX CUT.

Cuomo then passed a supposedly temporary tax on high-earning New Yorkers that was due to end next year, but now, CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported Thursday, that’s not going to happen.

“There will be an extension of the surcharge set to expire next year,” Cuomo said Thursday.

And when asked at if that wasn’t hypocritical, given his prior no-new-taxes positions, Cuomo tried to paint the tax hike as a tax cut, since the budget also provides the middle class with a $350 child tax rebate.

“Some taxes go up, yes, and others go down and the net is they go down. That’s why it’s a tax cut,” Cuomo said.

Let me get this straight, if I have a supermarket and I raise the price on meat if I drop the price on cookies I can call the prince increase on meat a price drop because cookies cost less? Are New Yorkers really falling for this?

I’m going to give the last word to Chris Christie who said this about democrats and tax increases last year on the campaign trail:

“35 years ago we didn’t have an income tax in NJ no income tax like right here in NH, we had no income tax and Governor Brendon Byrne, a democrat said: If you just give me a small income tax, a little one, I will lower your property taxes, we had the highest property taxes in America back in 1977 so 35 years later, what have we got? We’ve STILL got the highest property taxes in America and the income tax that started at 2% under governor Byrne is now 9%”

Anyone who believes or says he believes a temporary tax hike proposed by a democrat is actually temporary is either a fool or a con man.

Hey lets elect this Cuomo guy president!

Update: Of course you have a much better chance of lower taxes if you are bringing a certain television show that they governor likes.
