As I blogged earlier, Charles Barron interrupted his "Let's Cut Taxes For Rich People!" speech by chanting "Tax the rich! Tax the rich!" and "Shame on you! Shame on you!"
But according to NY1, Barron wasn't the only one to tell Cuomo he's wrong:
The Barrons may have been the most vocal at the Sunday night dinner, but they’re not alone. A majority of Democrats in the state Assembly and many in the state Senate are also pushing Cuomo to extend a tax on the wealthiest New Yorkers, which is set to expire at the end of the year.
"He may not really believe that everybody should share the pain. So we’re saying that there’s going to be resistance to any budget that’s going to kill our educational plans," said State Senator Ruth Hassell Thompson of the Bronx.
It seems this year’s caucus brought renewed vigor to members' desire to bring relief to the less fortunate and tax the rich, as leaders like Reverend Al Sharpton challenged lawmakers earlier in the day to fight against the proposed cuts to education and pension reforms that public employee unions are resisting.
“You cannot spare the super rich and penalize those that are helpless and vulnerable," Sharpton said.
Cuomo won't back down.
He says he has 77% approval ratings and that means New Yorkers back his polciy to lower taxes on rich people and starve working class and middle class people.
We'll see, Little Andy.
The opposition to your class warfare is starting to ratchet up.
Let's see what your poll numbers look like in a few months.
