Anyone But Cuomo


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo makes a point during a meeting on tax cut proposals in the Red Room at the Capitol on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, in Albany, N.Y. Cuomo has proposed cutting the state’s corporate income tax from 7.1 percent to 6.5 percent and eliminating it altogether for upstate manufacturers. He also has proposed paying more state aid as an incentive to any of New York’s 10,500 local governments that impose hard 2 percent spending caps and cut their costs by consolidating services with other towns, villages, cities and counties.

May all Democrats, Hillary Hacks and Bernie Bros alike, unite to make sure this man never sniffs the Democratic nomination.

Asked Wednesday whether it would be better for New York to have an all Democratic state government, Cuomo, the head of the state party who is believed to have 2020 presidential aspirations, referred to the chaos and dysfunction the last time the Dems controlled the chamber in 2009-10.

“We’ve had a unified Democratic government in Albany. It’s not a hypothetical. We’ve had it. It wasn’t extraordinarily successful. So I work with the Assembly and Senate that I’ve been given and I do the best I can,” he said.

Cuomo did say as a Democrat he supports members of his party. The governor has given money to the Senate Dems and their candidates. But the state party he controls has not.

It’s nice of a leading Democrat with national ambitions to have to say that he does in fact support Democrats, even though his actions don’t show it.
