    He just got a tax increase on millionaires -- a real millionaire's tax -- through the NY legislature with Republican support!

    And he has managed to make some pretty big budget cuts in NY without the massive harm to workers and the poor that we've seen in other states.

    I have some problems with Cuomo, in particular his silly property tax cap and his support for casinos, but he has really been a good governor.

    •  Hmm, well that's news to me, cuz last I read/heard (0+ / 0-)

      he was opposed to renewing an exisiting tax on rich people and he was all for cuts that would indeed result in pain for workers and loss of services to NYers.

      Has this changed or was I misinformed?

      Know what? Doesn't matter. He won't go any further in the process than Chris Dodd. Dems have several solid progressive women from which to choose and I believe it'll be one of them.

      Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.

      You are simply wrong on this.  The millionaire's tax expired.  He placed a new tax on the wealthy, but it is lower than the millionaire's tax which he let expire.  The net result is a tax decrease for the wealthy.  I see you got fooled by the way the game was played.  I would recommend looking more closely- especially when dealing with a scumbag like Cuomo.  Although I do admit that if he closes Indian Point I would vote for him next time.
