    Garbarino: Cuomo’s Childish National-Political Theater Threatens Tax Hike

    Statement from Assemblyman Andrew Garbarino (R,C,I,Ref-Sayville) on Gov. Cuomo’s threat to impose tax on homeowners due to Faso-Collins Tax Cut

    “I can’t imagine in what world the governor is living if he thinks a petty, retaliatory tax increase on New York taxpayers is a good response to a tax cut from the Faso-Collins Amendment. The governor has refused over and over again to trim the costs of our Cadillac-plan of a Medicaid program, the most expensive in the country.

    “The Faso-Collins Amendment would ensure that New York state picks up the cost of Medicaid, taking the burden off of counties and homeowners, as most states do, and would force the governor to trim the program’s excessive cost or cut frivolous state spending, like the $8 billion spent on underperforming and scandalized economic development programs. His political posturing could increase taxes on the middle class by 26 percent, and those are his own words. This is a dangerous game the governor is playing and it is New York taxpayers who will get hurt in the end.”

    Garbarino represents the 7th Assembly District, which consists of parts of the towns of Brookhaven and Islip. For more information, please visit Garbarino’s official website.
