Governor Cuomo is balancing his budget on the backs of the most vulnerable New Yorkers, all to give a massive tax break to the very wealthy. If his budget is passed, Cuomo will have perpetrated the largest transfer of wealth from regular New Yorkers to the wealthy in the history of our state. Cuomo's budget isn't just bad for regular New Yorkers and the most vulnerable'it's bad for the future of our state. Cuomo's budget makes no sense. His cuts aren't cuts'they're scars that will destroy communities while impeding growth, and make our state less attractive to anyone that would want to move here and add to our economy. He is, in effect, creating a larger deficit and more cuts to pay for a tax break for the wealthiest New Yorkers.
We are the 99%. We represent New York'unfortunately, our Governor does not. Ninety-nine percent of New Yorkers would not be effected by keeping our current progressive tax system, but many of us would be severely hurt by Cuomo's unnecessary cuts and his tax giveaway to the wealthiest. New Yorkers know that'and that's why they disagree with Cuomo's plan to cut taxes for the wealthiest by a two-to-one margin. Join RTTC-NYC and the 99% to demand a state budget that meets these demands:
* Strengthen the Rent Laws and Repeal Vacancy Destabilization*
* Extend the Millionaires Tax*
* Save our children and students from devastating education cuts*
Mr. Cuomo, You've got 5 Days to decide whose side you're on'the 99% or the 1%
The clock is ticking...and the 99% will not wait in silence...
