New York's tax revenues down billions, Cuomo's approval rating in the dumps: Could New York be ripe for a change in power?

In a survey of 778 registered voters, Siena College found that Mr. Cuomo has had a precipitous eight-point drop in his favorability rating, down to 43 percent from 51 percent last month. A full 50 percent of those polled had a unfavorable opinion of Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, up seven points from last month.

And that may have been the good news: Mr. Cuomo’s job-performance rating was even worse, with just 35 percent of those surveyed saying he was doing a “excellent” or “good” job. Almost twice that — 64 percent — said Mr. Cuomo was doing a “fair” or “poor” job, another sharp rise from January.

Mr. Cuomo was not alone. Siena found that Senator Chuck Schumer’s favorability had also slipped six percentage points, to 47 percent; and 46 percent of those surveyed said they held an unfavorable view of New York’s senior senator. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who recently launched a presidential campaign, also saw her favorability slip, to 44 percent, though that is well above her unfavorability rating of 34 percent.


Cuomo, Schumer and Gillibrand are all tanking in approval ratings. High tax policies have driven away tax contributors from New York, and tax revenues dropped nearly $3 billion dollars YOY in the state leading Cuomo and Democrats in the state scrambling to figure out how to balance budgets with less and less revenue.

Seems to me like New York is ripe for the picking, a change in power. Might not be from the GOP, but could be a moderate Democrat like Manchin, or even an independent.

They need another meanie hard ass to clean that City up like Gulliani did in the 90's.

It's a shame how much this Idiot let that great City Rudy left ruin into such deplorable condition. And the people that now run and control it all need to go.
A ball busting hard ass will send them all scurrying away. Like the Cockroaches they are.

The last time New York experienced a rise in bond ratings: 3 increases under Pataki.

Seems like all the Dems in New York have literally brought only higher taxes, less tax revenue (due to wealth flight), and bond rating decreases.

Taxes are paid voluntarily.
If the public feels like the taxes are unfair, a significant number of them will either cheat or otherwise decline to pay the taxes. Enforcing the tax code at any scale is impossible. There will never be enough government accountants to audit everyone or even a double digit percentage of everyone.

Because of this reality, the government spends a lot of time and money convincing tax payers that they will be in mortal danger if they cheat on or fail to pay their taxes. It especially loves to make examples of celebrities because that shit gets into the news!

This all gives bad data points for the public to base their decisions of whether or not to pay all the taxes they owe. People have a radically skewed idea of how likely they are to be audited.

My point is this: if taxes “feel unfair” to any significant number of tax payers, they’ll stop paying and revenues will drop.

That’s what’s happening in New York.

Notice how there is almost zero mention of the true reason for the missing revenues?

I'll give you a hint: One percent of the state’s top income earners provide 46 percent of the state’s personal income tax revenues.

What is the bogus cause the Dems in NY are claiming is the cause? Trump's $10k cap on SALT deductions.

Ridiculous, but true. That is the Dem way, after all -> Orange Man Bad

I have an idea what happened; those who have dough are escaping New York and relocating to Florida which has zero income tax.

They especially do this when they reach retirement.

It's amazing; when I go different places I hear the accents all over; a lot of them are from New Jersey which is almost indistinguishable.

It's a little weird to see all the NY Yankees, NY Giants, paraphernalia, in addition to the Boston Red Sox and the NE Patriots stuff all over.

The wealth moving here is simply amazing; it's probably boring but if you have google earth, take it down the inland waterway and islands (Palm Beach is an island) from Jupiter to Miami; you will see a gazillion expensive houses and boats for about 70 miles, tens of thousands of rich are here.

Amazon has scrapped it's plans for a New York City headquarters

. The internet and cloud services beast said Thursday it will pull out of its New York City development project after significant outcry from locals and various other parties fearing big rent hikes and epic wage inflation. Not helping Amazon’s case on what has become known as “HQ2” is an alleged $4.6 billion-plus tax incentive offered to Amazon by the state government to build the campus.

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens. For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term,” Amazon said in a statement.

Amazon added “While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City.”

De Blasio and Cuomo are such retards. Turn away 25,000 well paying jobs because they won't agree to a per head luxury tax.

This is also the reason why high tax policies are retarded. Wealth can flee at a moments notice, the world is very big.

A couple years ago, if someone would have told me that CNN twists the truth this much (and this often) in favor of a leftist agenda, I wouldn't have believed it. But now I see it all the time.

Yep, looks like now Amazon is going to reneg on Campaign Contributions and/or contributions to Cuomo and DiBlassio. Has them steaming mad. At least this shows AOC is the real thing, as a true Democrat Socialist would be actively against billion dollar corporate incentives and seems not worried about losing potential campaign support from Amazon.

Occasional cortex has destroyed 25,000 direct jobs in New York and at least another 25,000 in support jobs from Amazons presence in the state.
