Andrew Cuomo's Ad Promises Hope In Albany Budgeting, But Taxpayers' Hope Dims As Lobbyist Spending Reaches New High

Hope is for sale: make your best offer.

     According to lobbying data obtained from the Commission on Public Integrity, a record-shattering $210,664,067 was spent lobbying in New York State in 2010. ..an increase of 6.5%, ...Political parties and the governor received the most money in campaign donations from the top 25 interests.

  The Committee to Save New York, the monied, pro-Cuomo coalition is coming to Andrew Cuomo's rescue and in support of his budget plan with ads, which include his continued opposition to renewing an income tax surcharge on New Yorkers earning more than $200,000 and no new taxes.  The Committee to Save New York says, “but there’s hope, Governor Cuomo’s plan closes the budget gap without raising taxes.

     The previous blog post here reported that in Cuomo's budget plan the Albany Lobbyist/insiders won all the first ten rounds of Budget battles, such as:
1. A cap was to be placed on local taxes, but Medicaid which is the largest budget item for Counties is up 9.4%
2. No new taxes were promised, but a surcharge on medical procedures tax will raise $100 million dollars.  The Employer Alliance for Affordable Health Care called the measures "nothing more than a hidden tax on New York's small business community."
3. "In the past week, health-care advocates brought in to advise Mr. Cuomo on Medicaid said he blind-sided them with back-room deals with the hospital industry and union workers."
4. "Localities were quick to knock the first report ... from Mandate Relief Redesign Team, saying it falls short of the reforms needed.  ...Gov. Andrew Cuomo ... is seeking to cap the growth in property taxes to 2 percent a year. Governments and schools said they would be hard-pressed to abide by the cap without having some state requirements removed.
The Committee to Save New York's ad below has Andrew Cuomo offering Hope.  No price was mentioned, so contact the lobbyist nearest you.
