Once again Andrew Cuomo ,with the success of his Tax/Jobs Bill has shown what real stewardship is. In quite a impressive way The new Gov. has ,no matter the difficulty of a issue in NYS, managed to come out on top of the issue! From the Budget , to Unions, and now to the Millionares Tax! I have monitored NYS Politics for quite some time now, and I must say that I have never seen any gov in MY tenure navigate the political seas of Albany Like Andrew Cuomo has!!! And as 2012 Progresses to its conclusion and as they begin to wonder who is next in the national democratic wings, it goes without saying that if Andrew Cuomo continues to show such expertise, if he continues to come out on top of major issues like these, there may indeed be a Cuomo in the White House before long!

AS The 2012 legislative session prepares to begin, and as Gov Cuomo faces a electorate and a state that is in a explosive condidtion, he has taken the bull by the horns ,so to speak, and proposed to come forward with a "new deal" as it were. And leading that new deal, as it should, is the, shall we say, revision of the Issue of the"millionares tax"! Because clearly, to be on the wrong side of this issue is, given the climate of the coming legislative session, political suicide for the New Gov. Who clearly has national ambitions in mind! 2011 was ,for the most part, a victory lap for the Gov. But 2012 will be the Litmus test! For with deficit, public question, doubt and pain on the table in NYS it will indeed take a "new deal" to clear the air as it were. A firestorm is coming to Albany in 2012 and A new deal, especially when it comes to the "millionares tax" is exactly the cold water that Gov. Cuomo needs to cool the flames!
