Gov. David Paterson will make the expected announcement that he won’t run for office at 3 p.m. at his offices in Manhattan.
You can watch the news conference live here.
Your politics are neither left nor right. You are just wrong for New York in any light.
You asked state employees to take a pay cut and give your staff raises. You asked forgiveness for past sins with women and drugs and involve yourself in backroom deals with AEG. You asked for the police to not involve themselves in political affairs and interfere in the investigation of your advisor. You asked to penalize the drinking of soda in the name of health and sought new taxes on gyms and personal trainers.
Now again, you seek to take money from our pockets, sap strength from our economy and steal food from our table. By raising the cost of soda by 50%, are you hoping that NY will start drinking more cheap booze? Were you hoping that the beer-goggles could elect you to your own term as governor?
Are you just the front for special interest thievery? Is the two million from SEIU 1099 to support of the soda tax the going price for selling out New York?
“When I travel across the state, I see communities suffering…” Governor Paterson, in the end you ring false.
With the end of Paterson’s stint as governor, what is to come of SEIU’s plans for New York? It is hard to believe that the Service Employee International Union (SEIU) 1199 will simply allow the two million dollars investment in the soda tax simply fall to the wayside. We know whom the SEIU had in their pocket. And how that black-handed, double-dealing agent worked out for them.
So who will be the new face of the SEIU’s regressive policy for New York? What politician would be willing to back a union in their money grab from hardworking middle and lower classes of New York? State Health Commissioner Richard Daines is already out there toting the SEIU’s campaign to tax New Yorkers into poverty.
