    •  he is indirectly responsible. cuomo and christy (0+ / 0-)

      are the other two culprits here.
      instead of raising taxes on the rich to pay for the WTC site, they gouge the middle class by massively increasing taxes on commuters- a hidden regressive tax.

      if the tax rates were more progressive the tolls would not have had to go up to the degree that they did and to where they are going.

      he doesn't want to pay for the WTC with rich taxpayer money, nope- they will just make the middle class pay for it.

      •  that's a veryinteresting theory (0+ / 0-)

        that you could raise taxes on the rich and selectively use it to somehow pay for the WTC site. The city is not paying for that!
