Property Tax Cap for New York

18 Jun

Via Capitol Confidential, comes this video of a news conference that Governor David Paterson held yesterday with Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi and various taxpayer activists.

The Suozzi Commission recently concluded that, among other things, a property/school tax cap is necessary to help ease New Yorkers’ local tax burden, which is significantly higher than the national average. Although opposed vehemently by exactly whom you’d expect, the vast majority of New Yorkers support it. Suozzi reminded Paterson of that fact in a humorous fashion as the two of them essentially declared political war on opponents.

    I know some are getting tired of those who repeat this, but…

    How much better off would we be if Tom Suozzi was the governor? The guy was the better candidate with a firmer understanding of the real issues that held back NY. Unfortunately, we got Spitzer and now Paterson. At least Paterson seems to be warming up to Suozzi’s agenda.

    we don’t just need tax caps, but spending decreases too
    otherwise they’ll cap one tax and invent a new one
