‘Progressive leadership’ leads to bloated state budget

Posted 15 October 2017 at 8:58 am


The New York State, County and Local governments rather than complain about elimination of SALT deductions should focus on tax relief. The impact of removing the deduction would be less burdensome to the taxpayer.

Why is this State’s budget double that of Florida? Wasteful spending promoting green energy is just one of the issues which contribute to a bloated budget. The Riverbend Project in Buffalo, built with state dollars and leased for $2 annually to a now defunct owner, should raise attention.

I am certain many more examples exist throughout this state.  Why should Federal taxpayers subsidize the price of progressive leadership?
