  2. This is a sham on

    This Tax Cap is a sham and everyone who voted for it knows it.

    It is full of loopholes that will in effect provide no real tax relief.

    * Pension costs are exempt from the cap.
    * Mandates that are the key drivers of property tax increases are exempt.

    The true intention of a Tax Cap is a spending cap. With a cap on taxes, state and local governments will have to trim growth in their budgets. But imagine a spending cap where the most expensive items don’t count toward the total. Call it what you want, but this is not a Cap.

    The Property tax crisis in New York isn’t fixed at all.

    Cuomo to homeowners: “Your school and property taxes are OUTRAGEOUS, UNCONSCIONABLE, and PROFANE. So we will leave them just where they are except for another guaranteed 2% a year plus whatever the increase in outrageous pensions bring along with various other untouched, mandated insanity.”

  4. Albany Watch on

    So the HYPOOCRITES unite to praise the Tax Cap – Astorino, Jenkins and his foolish followers. In a few years, when they cry crocodile tears over laid off policemen and firefighters, closed parks, remember they embraced this cap today. They are an embarrassment.

  5. Albany Stopwatch on

    If the cops, firefighters, and teachers weren’t so greedy, overpaid and overpensioned, we wouldn’t have these problems to begin with. The fat cats make $150,000+ each, call in sick 20% of the year, and game the pensions system so that newer “brothers” can’t be affforded.
