Maybe Daddy Cuomo can leave Matilda and take up with a Food Network Star so he can be as good as his son !
Maybe Andy can move into Daddy's Sutton Place housing units, you know the all un-minority neighborhoods of NYC.
Maybe Daddy needs to pro-actively support Planned Parenthood like his son while currying favor with his Church pals as Andy does. I am sure the NY Cardinal will call Mario his friend too. View Comment
What happened ALL the money we have been contributing via gasoline taxes and other taxes ???
What happened to ALL that supposed Federal money our Senators and Congress people brag about bringing home ?
Think maybe the Albany hacks diverted it ?
Think maybe the Albany hacks need to stop and repeal all those UNFUNDED MANDATES that steal local money for their political purposes ? View Comment
Face it New York is ONLY about money for the HAVES.
Look Cuomo gave $5,000,000 to the Letterman Show to stay in New York after the other Cuomo supporter takes over.
It creates nothing but giving taxpayer money to the HAVES for their political endorsement.
Would you expect anything less ?
Face it Christie smells the money, he is playing to it along with the endorsements he will get. Another Andy Cuomo, its all about ME.
One "happy" place with YOUR MONEY for the HAVES. View Comment
Let us see - his Daddy did not run for President, ever wonder why ?
Can the apple not be far from the tree.
I wonder why they all sit at the front photo table at Al Smith Dinner, are they seeking absolution with bountiful loads of cash ? View Comment
The blame is squarely in our court, we the electorate.
The root causes of the payment system failures were NEVER identified, prioritized, solutions proposed with operational plans for implementation agreed to and then put into practice.
But then again this is the behavior of the political hack society we accept, vote in time and time again.
We allowed our Congressional Leaders to fool us into believing we were too dumb to read a 2700 page Bill that they did not read.
We allowed a so called "press" to keep its mouth shut to advance their political agenda. Lets hope we wake up and stop buying their pap.
IT WILL ALL END WHEN THERE IS NO MORE MONEY.
Or when we are all on some sort of dole with the political hacks blaming us for being selfish as they lavish themselves.
As an aside --
First: the healthcare system is not broken. We have the best medical in the world bar none. Notice how many Canadians and other foreign nationals come here. We have to correct how we pay for the medical care we receive.
Second: it is not a level playing field. Our political class enjoys their healthcare payments on our backs. Large employers deduct the cost of employees healthcare insurance payments from their income - this was allowed by FDR after WW II to avoid wage and economic inflation. The little guy is not allowed to do the same.
Third: we care about the truly poor of our society to the point where everybody wants in on the dole. We fail to find those who really need help and to find those gaming on the system.
Fourth: there is too much government money (your money) on the table and it is grabbed up by the cheats. There is no approach of watching every penny as if it were your own money.
"shortrosen(s)" comment about the The Journal News is so telling of farce we have as journalism here in our great Country. View Comment
I am so looking forward to another Andrew Cuomo victory !
He with the NYC cabal will finish off the State.
It will be wonderful to live in the lowest State in all respects.
Bravo Andrew, Sandra, the Kennedy Crew and Daddy Mario with Momma Matlida !
No, the current 10 point Bill Mr. Silver is sitting on, he refuses to let the women's issues out on the floor unless it contains the abortion (extreme) words,
Yes abortion is fully legal in NY.
We are proudly the abortion capital of the nation.
In The Bronx more minorities are subject to abortion than anywhere in New York State; what a place, three cheers !
What more do you want post birth abortion, because that is about all that remains. View Comment
Face it Astorino & Moss represent the New York we need to have.
Not the bitterness toward people who do not march to the tune current Governor with his team.
We need a New York that will return to a hub of:
careers of skilled crafts people making things of value from raw materials,
producing the fuels we need for life,
skilled professional people like engineers, teachers, etc. who bring a thirst for creativity across the board.
Rob & Chris have the skills to do all these and more.
Maybe it is time to STOP FEEDING THE BEAST, elect a 100 % new batch of people who might just consider being responsible WITH YOUR MONEY.
Recall the money for these kind of projects was first and foremost stolen by our governments: agencies authorized to collect tolls, the Federal and State gasoline taxes, the discounted money supposedly sent from the Federal Government highway "trust" fund to the states, the states sending discounted tax monies to the counties and towns.
Then of course there was the Federal "stimulus" money, it was the cure all, where did it go ?
Government feeds at your trough, says you are selfish and to blame for the sad state of affairs.
Where is this money to come from ?
Taking money from any government agency makes you subservient to their demands which may not align with local needs or wants.
HUD, a nurtured child of Governor Andrew Cuomo, is WILLFULLY punishing the very people they claim to want to help in name of Government control over all of our lives.
BEWARE OF PEOPLE BEARING GIFTS ! View Comment
TAXES that sap economic growth.
No wealth creation (making things from raw material) work for crafts workers, for engineers, for laborers, etc.; aka manufacturing.
NY politicians hate manufacturing, they drive it away.
NY politicians hate making the state thrive, no gas production here, just over the line in Pennsylvania.
The "diversity" buzz word is meaningless; people live where they can work in real jobs, afford and want to live.
Create the economic environment for people to stay here. View Comment
Langone is a Progressive, he is a taker that is why he supports the likes of Cuomo - he gives your efforts and creativity to others for personal fame.
I hope Cuomo wins big time so he can finish off New York State then we can start with a clean slate. His NYC buddy deBlasio needs free reign so he can complete his mission of destruction.
The likes of Langone will flee. We will be rid of them, then real people can rebuild based on the sound principle of getting rewarded for what you earn or create without "state welfare".
No welfare for businesses or individuals, just a sound tax system, no deductions. Flat tax, you file on a 3"x 5" index card.
Get rid of all the hidden taxes and sales taxes.
Get rid of all the Lobbyists "gimmes".
Deductions and gimmes are the "I own you, so vote for me" currency of political hacks.
How many government jobs could we be free of ?
