Mayor de Blasio’s response (to the NY disaster he has created) has been to threaten the wealthy with higher taxes.
“To restore city services and save jobs, we need long term borrowing and a federal stimulus—we need these leaders to join the fight to move the City forward.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo has fought against raising taxes. This week, however, he threatened to impose them if “Washington doesn’t bail out the state.”
