Cuomo To Appoint Pataki, McCall To "Tax Cut Task Force"

Anybody who thinks a Mayor de Blasio is getting a tax increase on rich people in Governor Andrew Cuomo's re-election year should take note of this news:

ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo is turning to the Republican who defeated his father to come up with ways to cut taxes, the Daily News has learned.

In a surprising announcement scheduled for Wednesday morning, Cuomo will appoint former Gov. George Pataki and former Democratic state Controller Carl McCall to head a task force charged with finding ways to cut between $2 billion and $3 billion in taxes next year, a source with ties to McCall said Tuesday night.

Cuomo wants to announce an aggressive tax-cutting plan as he heads into his reelection run next year.
Having a Republican like Pataki on board could help him upstate, where polls show he is weakest, said one insider.

Ah - an election year maneuver to try and run up the score and set himself up for a 2016 White House run if Clinton doesn't run.

That's our Andy - always looking at a way to finagle higher office for himself
