Make that he's not stupid anymore. As Secretary of HUD (Dept of Housing & Urban Development) he pushed hard for increasing home ownership, which is code for forcing banks to accept dodgy borrowers. It was a factor (one of several) in the housing/debt boom and subsequent financial disaster which we are still digging out of.
He’s also looking for ANY excuse to close Indian Point, the NY area’s lone Nuclear Power Plant. It reportedly generates anywhere from 30-40 percent of the NYC area’s electricity but was built way to close to densely populated areas. Closing it would be disastrous for consumers, but he still talks about it. Perhaps he thinks this will balance public opinion.
It’s the best job market up the road....particularly since we’re FINALLY thinking twice about ethanol subsidies.
“Cuomo isn’t stupid, this will help NY’s economy by creating jobs and generating taxes. Like Chrisite, he instituted a 2% tax cap and cut the budget. “
Interesting...the Dems in NY and even nationally will have a much tougher time trying to stop a certified liberal from trying to help out this country than they’d ever have trying to stop a Republican. This may be fun to watch.
That 2% cap can be easily set aside by local TAX needs.
Interesting video on how fracking is done.
And people wonder why oil companies need so much money to produce oil and gas!
Cuomoo is trying to set himself up for a run for the Presidency. He is a die hard liberal punk, pretending to be a pro-business pol.
A REAL stimulus would be giving people in the Northeast a tax credit to convert their dinosaur heating oil houses to natural gas. Cut a big chunk of our dependence on foreign oil, create an instant market for frack gas and increase the sales value of NE property-a win, win, win.
Crap links in that story. The link for the State study just returns to the story.
