The people who are pushing this are from the Working Families Party. De Blasio is married to them.
The Cuomo ally noted the WFP is basically run by the most leftist leaders in the labor movement the Transport Workers Union, the Communication Workers of America and United Federation of Teachers, among others.
De Blasio and his allies show no sign of backing down. A labor-backed UPK coalition met Friday and vowed to continue a campaign to push the mayors tax-the-rich initiative in open defiance of the governor, who opposes it.

Amazing when libtards want to get re-elected they move to the center right...
Must be sort of hard to get that conservative vote when you just told them to get the hell out of your state...
Wow. And right after deblasio backed CuHomo on his “ get out of ny conservatives “ tyraid.
A little math here:
$530 million in taxes / $500,000 baseline = 1,060 people paying...???
Even if you double the $500,000 base line to $1,000,000 in income that is $250,000 more in taxes per person...
Someone doesn't do math very well or the "rich" in NYC are about the get raped...
Blast from the past, “vote for cuomo not the homo” battle cry back in the day when he was running against mayor Koch.
I think Bill has an uncanny resemblance to Alan Grayson. They kinda look alike and certainly think alike.
Uh, sorry but your math makes no sense for computing the number of people who would pay. It is people who make over $500K per year, not that anyone would actually pay $500K.
That being said, I oppose the idea of such a tax.
I think they forgot the "T": WTFP
he now called “RED BILL” by local taxpayers in NYCITY
That's what the ??? were for...
I understand a
citizen tax slave of NYC who makes $7,500,000 a years will pay a larger share of the $530 million...
But how many people in NYC make that type of money...?
Probably a couple hundred at best...and probably damn good at hiding their taxable income...
My point is I think their math is pie in the sky...
It sounds good to the working class guy, which they need his political support, who thinks "I don't care what a person with a $500 K income pays in taxes....
Push come to shove if the commie mayor gets his way....that working class stiff will be footing the tax increase as well in the future..
Are you saying de Blasio is not married to his wife?
here is what I know
De Blasio (or his birth name Warren Wilhelm Jr)and his wife, activist and poet(and Lesbian) Chirlane McCray, met while both were working for the Dinkins administration. They married in 1994 and honeymooned in Cuba(well now, who'd a thunk it[snark]) They live in Park Slope, Brooklyn, with their two children, Dante, a high school junior; and Chiara, a college student in California. Both children either attended or still attend public schools. His daughter Chiara addressed her own challenges with substance abuse and depression in late December 2013, through a 4-minute video that the mayor's transition team released.
