"study for EmpireState Development claimed..created 85,835 jobs 2017-18. But Bureau of Labor Statistics showed only 18,482 film-related jobs over 14 yrs. Why discrepancy?.. study counted every working assignment,no matter how short,as state-funded job."

Dems rent control: “Sty Town & Blackstone are making the news because they’re enormous, but the same logic applies to every building owner. Economists are more or less unanimous in calling rent control destructive. The only short-term winners are people who’ve already locked in.”

Cuomo's MTA:"we did not know exactly where our trains were, so for safety reasons, we had..to instruct all trains to stop where they were, to maintain their positions while we ascertained what exactly was going on..." via

Bad nationally, Cuomo’s $15minwage worse; drives jobs to $7.25minwage states like neighboring PA: “As the recent CBO report shows, the consequences of a $15 minimum wage would be millions of workers losing their jobs and families taking home less income.”

If NYS achieved “net zero” tomorrow, current global greenhouse gas emissions would drop 0.4% Without the slightest effort at cost-benefit analysis, NY is embarking on a hyper costly response to climate change, starting w/wildly expensive offshore wind.

Cuomo kills gas pipelines; belongs in “Dirty Dozen”: “increasing natural gas supply is an important way to address climate change..[Cuomo’s] ongoing moratorium would likely result in the increased use of dirtier fuel oil to heat the city’s buildings.”

It’s official-Omar is a loon & utterly ignorant of history. Compares Israel to Nazi Germany. I just returned from there today. She’s sick. Omar introduces resolution defending boycott of Israel, likens it to boycotts of Nazi Germany, Soviet Union

Power corrupted Cuomo all about politics, good public policy is optional: “will force contractors..to comply with union contracts..needlessly increase the cost, & undermines his claim that ‘environment and climate change are the most important policy priorities we face.’”

Cuomo “has needlessly cut NY off from using imported hydroelectric to hit its renewable targets..meanwhile MA using Canadian hydroelectric power..at a considerably smaller cost..makes more sense..to facilitate more transmission from renewables in Canada and upstate.”

“Cuomo’s energy policies will still be seriously expensive, but they shouldn’t be needlessly expensive. They certainly haven’t been seriously formulated.”

Like his Cuomo TZ bridge (still hides costs & tolls), “Cuomo didn’t say how big the offshore wind subsidies will be, but experience indicates they’ll be considerable..collected from ratepayers on a statewide basis..more than half the funds..from people who live north of NYC.”

“Cuomo’s offshore wind push comes when the state has been failing to hit its own renewable energy targets. After almost 15 years of subsidies, NY gets less energy from renewables in 2018 than it did in 2017 because Cuomo has needlessly complicated the processes.”

For power corrupted Cuomo it’s all politics; good policy is optional: “Cuomo is continuing full steam ahead with policies that will make the state’s already lofty renewable energy targets more expensive and less realistic.”

It’s always been Cuomo’s MTA as he waxes furious “to spread the blame...He chooses its top managers: current Chairman Pat Foye, and Joe Lhota and Freddy Ferrer before him. He picks a near-majority of the board, too — with considerable sway over the rest.”

“MTA released a draft of its ‘transformation plan’...it isn’t transformative. An eighth-grade business class could have put it together. But it helps Cuomo further conquer the MTA to avoid issues an independent MTA leader would force him to confront.”

“Adjusting for the book-keeping shifts, but without counting the Medicaid deferral, ­Democrat Comptroller DiNapoli estimates this year’s state spending increase comes to 5.7%. That number, not Cuomo’s 2%, is closer to reflecting the state’s actual fiscal blood pressure.”

“to keep up the appearance of tight budget control, Cuomo’s cooking the books.”
