The following article, ICYMI: Dem-Controlled New York Senate Passes Bill Solely to Give Trump’s Taxes to Congress, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Lawmakers in New York have their heads on straight.
Wait. That doesn’t sound right.
When President Trump is re-elected to a second term in November 2020, Democrats will still do everything possible to see him impeached.
That’s their endgame – to get 45 out of office, no matter what.
Dems wouldn’t exactly be thrilled with President Mike Pence if Trump gets the boot, so maybe there’s a chance they haven’t thought this one all the way through.
Now, the New York state senate has passed a bill solely so they can hand Trump’s taxes over to liberals in Congress.
If this isn’t presidential harassment, then what is?
From Auburn Pub:
New York’s Democrat-controlled Senate approved a bill easily Wednesday that would allow three congressional committees to get access to President Donald Trump’s state tax returns, giving Democrats a potential end-run around the administration’s refusal to disclose the president’s federal returns.
The bill, which now goes to the Democrat-led state Assembly, doesn’t target Trump by name, but would authorize state tax officials to release returns filed by seven different types of state and federal officeholders if requested by the leaders of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee or the Joint Committee on Taxation.
The law would apply to returns filed by the U.S. president and vice president, U.S. senators, or the state’s governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general or comptroller.
This is the state that sent Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Bill de Blasio, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kirsten Gillibrand and numerous other far-left radicals to elected office.
Therefore, it kind of makes sense that the Empire State would cut funding for the Special Olympics while giving raises to its representatives.
It’s not right, of course.
It just makes sense.
From Daily Wire:
Democrat-controlled New York is cutting funds to the Special Olympics and giving a raise to lawmakers a week after Democrats in Washington, D.C., expressed outrage after the Trump administration proposed cutting funds to the Special Olympics.
“New York’s budget for the Special Olympics decreased from $200,000 in 2018 to $150,000 for this year,” The Daily Caller reported. “Meanwhile, every one of the state’s 213 lawmakers will ultimately receive a raise that is almost the same amount cut from the games for disabled athletes.”
The budget, which was decided on Sunday, increases New York state lawmakers’ salaries from $79,500 to $110,000 and raises Governor Andrew Cuomo’s salary by $70,000, increasing it to $250,000.
Ain’t that something?
The exact amount cut from the Games will be given to 213 lawmakers. Funny how that worked out!
Cuomo and his ilk are everything wrong with America, at the moment. They’ll whine about income disparity, then chop up $50,000 and split it between themselves.
As a way to spite President Trump, Governor Cuomo, brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, granted pardons to nearly two dozen “undocumented immigrants” to prevent their deportations.
