I have a nice place in the country also. Over 5 grand in property taxes. I think I mentioned on another thread. All those that think your taxes are just ducky raise your hand.

as much as people stamp their feet... our taxes, milk, gasoline and other items are actually artificially low. For example: I have a beautiful place out in the country on 2 acres of land. My total taxes for the past two years have been as follows: County: $800 a tear plus or minus 25 bucks, School 650 a year but after Star it has averaged about $325 a year. I personally do not think a 100 dollar a month in taxes is going to break me or anybody else. You think our schools are bad? try florida or texas where there is no state tax... or try paying 30 dollars for a car registration in So. Carolina. Point is: the money has to come from somewhere... hmm

" 'Any time we can reduce the tax burden on both the citizens and most importantly, businesses, I think we're heading in the right direction,' County Executive-elect Vince Horrigan said . . ."

Now that he's been elected his true priorities come into view. He thinks businesses are more important than the citizens of our county. It figures, 'cause that's how Republicans roll.

I agree with Regulator why impose a 2 per cent tax cap when every Town Village and the County over ride it.

How does enacting a permanant 2 percent tax cap reduce taxes? It doesn't and we also know everyone votes to override it anyways.

Here's novel plan for people to believe Cuomo actually intends to reduce taxes for boosting New York State's economy.....

all government and teacher unions are immediately disbanded. Government workers no longer have job guarantees the same as private employment. immediately lay off 15% of the state workers from the top down; including politicians and their bloated staffs.

Every law must reflect the true cost of compliance so people know how the effect will pan out beyond the sales pitch the pols give provide.

Make every state and local government employee be subject to the same job protection as local private enterprises offer. That is if business can't make it then neither do the government employees who make it hard for them to operate.

There it is....a better plan! Oh and remember, you can speculate the likely hood of a plan's success by the howls of mutants feeding from the public trough!

"New York State Sen. Catharine Young and Gov. Andrew Cuomo believe reducing taxes will boost the state's economy." That statement is absolutely amazing, I would have never thought of that myself. I am so glad these people got elected.
