Look at costs before backing Cuomo bid

first_imgWe know that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is going to make a run for the White House. Regarding our state and his record: First, our state has the highest taxes in the country. We also have some hidden fees, along with surcharges, which are $90 per motor vehicle infraction. If you go to court, you may get a reduced charge. But the fine is steep and so is the surcharge per infraction. If you exceed the point limit, the Department of Motor Vehicles charges a fee of $600 or more. Forget the 14th Amendment, which is equal protection under the law.Then we have OTB, from which some percentage goes to education. But student don’t have books. We can pay for six principals, two for each grade. I only had two for the whole school.Now we have casinos under the same plan for education — raises for teachers — not our kids. Lotto, Mega Millions, Powerball and scratch-offs. How many millions are taken in? If you are lucky to hit the lottery, almost 50 percent is taken in taxes. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion You have property tax, tax on electricity, (some places) water tax, school tax. When you buy a new vehicle, boat, motor homes or anything else, look at the sales tax.The Safe Act gun control law has done nothing but ruin sport competition shooting, hunting and personal defense of property and family. It’s also led to price gouging on firearms and ammo.Gov. Andrew Cuomo went to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, but didn’t care about Texas or Florida. Why? Because New York City is full of Puerto Ricans. What has he done for upstate New York? Nothing. He let National Grid raise its prices, but gave no relief for gas prices, just more tax.Folks, New York state is picking your pockets to support illegal immigrants and welfare — not the working citizen. Is this what you want for a president? No discussion of tax relief. I’ll stick with President Trump.Claude Rizzicone Jr.SchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%last_img read more
