Actress targets Cuomo, education cuts

Actress Cynthia Nixon puts Andrew Cuomo's budget in plain language.
"And while we're at it, let's take a hundred or more schools across the state, and just shut them down. It sounds like I'm joking but that's exactly what is going to happen if we don't stop Governor Cuomo's record setting one-point-five billion dollars in school cuts.
"The worst part is the governor is simultaneously proposing multi-billion-dollar tax breaks for the wealthiest New Yorkers."
The group, Alliance for Quality Educaiton, is calling for people to submit their own videos describing how Cuomo's cuts to schools would impact them.
Cuomo's spokesman, Josh Vlasto, says the figures Nixon cites in the video are not accurate.
