Weekly Wrap-Up

“You are kidding yourself if you think you can be one of the highest-taxed states in the nation, have a reputation for being anti-business — and have a rosy economic future.”

Now who said that? I can’t remember...

Our Weekly Poll question last week asked if you thought Cuomo and the Albany establishment would raise taxes in 2012. Unfortunately we underestimated their money-grubbing abilities.

Fortunately Conservatives in the Assembly, including Minority Leader Brian Kolb, continue to speak out against the Cuomo politicians’ behind-closed-doors tax ambush.

As Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin has noted, this Cuomo “tax reduction” will equal out to about $30 in tax relief for many New York families. What will you do when faced with such an extraordinary windfall? Give your vote today in our new Weekly Poll.

Cuomo’s sudden alliance with the Occupy Wall Street-style class warriors (whose tax-and-spend zealotry has occupied Albany for quite some time now) reflects what’s going on in Washington – what Charles Krauthammer calls “Obama’s Campaign for Class Resentment.”

Where can one find these “one percenters” – joyriding in a Rolls Royce? Gunning for a hole-in-one on the golf course? No, just peek into Obama’s inner circle.

In the Washington Times Donald Lambro surveys the GOP presidential field that (for the next few minutes anyway) seems to be down to two.

The Times also reports on Mitt Romney’s increasingly aggressive pursuit of Newt Gingrich.

And via the Weekly Standard, we discover a new concept: the “Valentine’s Day Option” in which a new GOP contender could (theoretically) crash the race at the last minute.

Have a great weekend!
