“No surprise once again, but entrenched Assembly Democrats constructed an Assembly One-House Budget that includes billions in tax increases, coffers for college tuition of illegal aliens and more welfare loopholes. The tax-and-spend mentality is apparent once again as Medicaid, one of the most powerful driving forces in soaring property-taxes, remains among the largest expenditures along with downstate issues like the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The Democrats’ budget also fails to include any middle-class tax cuts, aid for our struggling small businesses or mandate relief.
“Assembly Dems are also trying to take credit for the Veterans Buy-Back bill and ending the GEA, initiatives Assembly Republicans have championed for years. Millions of upstate voters deserve a voice in government too, but apparently, in this state, if you don’t vote Democrat, you don’t matter.”
