No New Taxes. That is the word from Andrea Stewart-Cousins. She said that Hochul has made it clear that tax increases are off the table this year. That is a relief to the ultra affluent who are already being taxed to death. The excessive levies have driven thousands of wealthy residents out of the state. New York can not afford to lose any more. Unfortunately such restraint was not shared by Carl Heastie and Democratic progressives. They are clamoring for even more soaking of the rich. Where it will end is anyone’s guess. No New Taxes. Here’s hoping that sane heads will prevail to stem the outflow of the our most productive citizens !!
