Cuomo's new deal
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!
