Ed Cox, the chairman of the state Republican Party, this afternoon weighed in on the session of the Legislature that produced no results, a feet that he called an “abomination.”

“This session’s entire budget process and the conduct of Democrat legislators in complete control of the proceedings have been an abomination. Legislators will again leave Albany having failed to end our budget nightmare due to stonewalling by the Democratic leadership. Voters in New York State have every right to be furious with the ineptitude of Democrat leaders whose so-called ‘solutions’ to the budget deficit have all involved nothing more than raising taxes even further. I commend Senate Republicans for standing strong against such tax and fee increases, which threaten to cripple New York’s economy and drive more businesses from this state. Republicans are unwilling to place an increased burden on our families because Democrat legislators aren’t willing to make the necessary cuts.”
