Re: “Cuomo's big gamble to create new jobs

In the early hours of Saturday, the New York State Assembly and Senate quietly voted on the casino bill that would allow for four Las Vegas-style casinos to be built in upstate New York. Both the Senate and Assembly approved the bill. But missing from it was a provision that would have prohibited casino groups from making campaign contributions. It was a provision supported by many legislators and touted by Governor Andrew Cuomo only a few weeks ago, His press release attached to the first version of the bill highlighted a “Preventing Corruption” section. Which has now been quietly omitted: http://www.13wham.com/news/local/story/Cas…

Re: “Governor proposes new anti-bribery laws

Another example of Cuomo rushing to pass laws based upon media attention. We don't need fast laws, we need good laws. We don't need a hysterical Governor acting like chicken little. Under Cuomo NY has experienced the demise of 39,453 NY state businesses last year, Cuomo is raiding $1.75 billion from the reserves of the off-budget State Insurance Fund (SIF). Coumo can not even hold on to his democratic majority which is in the middle of a corruption scandal and “show-me-the-money culture” and “pay-to-play politics.” He has disenfranchised the Northern and Western part of New York with his SAFE Act.. He can’t make a decision, either way with respect to fracking. New York has the highest taxes in the nation, is the most indebted state, with 33 percent of income dedicated to borrowing. It is ranked as the least "business-friendly" state in the country and if that were not bad enough NY has the distinction of being the least free state in the union and is called the “Nanny State” with politicians legislating what we eat and drink. Municipal governments from Nassau County to Yonkers to Syracuse are teetering. And during Mr. Cuomo’s time in office, unemployment has risen above the national average. 9% of the state’s 2000 population left for another state between 2000 and 2011 — the highest such figure in the nation," the study by George Mason's libertarian-leaning Mercatus Center found.
