Working Families is a joke. They stand firmly against any working family who cannot afford to pay their taxes in this state! The tax bill on my tiny LI home is now reaching 15k. I cannot afford the home I've lived in for over 35 years. Good riddence to public employee strangle hold on this state.

Why is Cuomo, or any Democrat, running against public employees in the 1st place? And why does The Working Families party want him on their line when he is? When WF was getting started, it said it was running Democratic candidates just to get enough votes to establish itself & once it had, it would have its own candidates. Is that likely to happen, ever?

This ballot line game has always struck me as bizarre. The easiest way to keep your ballot line is to put someone on it who is already on 2 other lines. It hardly adds to the diversity of choice.

People can be candidate-placeholders for party purposes... Did I get this right? If so, NO WONDER the State's in the shape it's in!

What's up with men with three hyphenate names? Can Cuomo's voice be used as some kind of weapon against Iran? Does anyone really know that there's a primary in NJ?
