Tax receipts are indeed down. His paycheck is being affected. You don’t want to volunteer in New York. People giving their time, money and effort will be discouraged from doing that again. If Cuomo does this now, what’s stopping him from following anybody that helps in the state to tax their income? What gives him the right to do this at all? Will he tax tourists once they’ve gone back home? This opens a slippery slope for any governor.
You may need to live at the common man’s level, Cuomo
People worldwide have had their incomes slashed and in some cases destroyed due to the shutdown. Open your state up, Cuomo. Those tax receipts will come rolling in. Or are you under directives from the Democratic National Committee to remain closed? Will civil disobedience be the way people are able to earn enough to pay the bills? You can’t jail everybody.
Healthcare workers already sacrifice beyond what you might be willing to tolerate, Cuomo. You just added insult to injury and if other states follow suit, shame on you for starting that ball rolling. But this might be politically very unpopular. How do you rate? Because New York is the epicenter of this?
The Boston Tea Party can happen in any state
It doesn’t matter the time. It just matters the heavy government overreach. The most recent civil disobedience who has been exonerated is Shelley Luther in Texas. Americans from all walks of life helped her in big and small ways. Word gets around quickly, especially on the internet.
How on earth does that elected official stay in office if they can’t get the job done? Remember the Democrats during Hurricane Katrina? Even ten years later elected officials had their head in the sand. Ultimately the New Orleans mayor was jailed.
Cuomo is overdrawn. Tuesday at a news conference he addressed his state. “We’re not in a position to provide any subsidies right now because we have a $13 billion deficit. So there’s a lot of good things I’d like to do, and if we get federal funding, we can do, but it would be irresponsible for me to sit here looking at a $13 billion deficit and say I’m gonna spend more money, when I can’t even pay the essential services.”
If you can’t get the job done, step down. It’s not your money.
