Moral Monday Comes to Albany
In the face of an immoral state budget, our faith calls us to act. The current Cuomo-proposed budget would make New York’s worst-in-the nation income inequality even worse.
The core of the budget proposal is more than $2 billion in new tax cuts that are overwhelmingly targeted to the wealthy and big corporations. This includes a billion dollars a year in tax breaks that will only go to millionaires, billionaires and Wall Street: a $750M/year reduction in inheritance taxes, and a $350M tax break from elimination of New York’s dedicated Bank Tax.
Governor Cuomo’s proposed tax cuts would be financed by more austerity cuts to essential public services, including schools, higher education, local government services and the social safety net. For more information, visit the Fiscal Policy Institute website.
