Streams

Cuomo takes to the airwaves this morning

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 - 09:30 AM

Governor Andrew Cuomo is set for another two-fer this morning, hitting up the Fred Dicker show on WGDJ 1300 AM in Albany at about 10:07 am this morning. You can listen in here.

After that he'll be on Susan Arbetter's "The Capitol Pressroom" program which you can listen to as a live stream here on the Empire. That'll be shortly after 11:00 am.

The Governor likes to double down on radio appearances, usually indicating something big is happening, or, more than likely in this case, that his administration's message is being distorted. I'm going to hazard to guess he'll be addressing the report in the Wall Street Journal this morning that his administration is looking to overhaul the tax code which may appear to be a back-door millionaires' tax plan. His administration is denying there's any such thing.

Of course, this may have been in the works for some time.

Does that mean the tax rate on public employee retirement income might be raised above...zero?  Just mentioning that little deal, and the lower tax burden for seniors compared with working people with the same income and less in other benefits, is virtually forbidden.  My guess is the generational equity issue in general is one that WNYC does not want to touch.
