Forgotten in the glamour of government officials talking about how they will deliver projects is who pays for it — You do!
During Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State message on Wednesday, he proposed spending $http://southbuffalonews.com00 billion in new infrastructure projects – calling it an ambitious plan that would rival former Gov. Nelson Rockefeller’s building spree 50 years ago that helped create the sky high tax and spend state New York has become.
Of course Cuomo failed to say taxpayers will pay for it and seemed to fail to say how taxpayers will pay for it.
Especially with so many taxpayers leaving the state.
New York has the highest taxes, highest energy costs, least business-friendly climate and most citizens leaving the state out of the 50 competitors known as the United States.
“Until the Governor gets serious about reforming New York, we will continue the exodus of jobs and people,” said Republican Chairman Ed Cox, making an expected carping criticism.
While, of course, his is a completely partisan statement, the fact is, he’s right!
