The OMNIBUS TAX SOLUTION CONSORTIUM member organizations will be meeting today…(at an undisclosed location?)
Just kidding…we do not hide from the super wealthy and their hired hands no matter how much they bluster and babble about retribution (they do, you know.) …far from it. We confront the issues, the people opposing tax equity and property tax reform, and the forces that are draining the middle class of all equity in this state…we names names and we can’t be bought off…(thus far actually the offers have been pretty feeble… sigh, I’d love to be tested with a big offer to get Taxnightmare to sell out to the BIG $$$ guys.…it’s character buildingJ)
Because Omnibus coordinators come from around the state we usually meet in Albany…unlike the rich and their minions who meet at expensive resorts .
We have a lot of toasts to make….to those GOOD Senators-among them Bonacic –who know we have to address the growing wealth imbalance by legislating a millionaire’s tax (a million or more taxable) and use the money to bring property tax relief to struggling families.
In addition we can restore some education funding (without restoration property taxes will soar again)…and another toast to the Assembly people like Ellen Jaffe who support this plan also.
We’ll talk about the GOOD guys at our meet-those who voted against the budget and/or are supporting real property tax reform and a millionaire’s tax to fund it- as the struggle goes on.
Personally I’ll hoist a glass of house red to the clueless public servants who put their well shod feet in their mouths and – in so doing- hand me material for this broadsheet ..
BTW -The opposition to tax equity and property tax relief is having a meeting also…ostensibly to get people to lobby for the super wealthy agenda…and to celebrate a budget that handed them a hot 5 billion in public money. You know which budget…the one that just got passed –with lots of self-back patting- by the DINOs and RINOs in Albany.
The strange thing about the “opposition to tax reform” flyer I just got is that it says people will have to pay 25 bucks to learn to lobby ( for the Richie Richest agenda?) and more if they don’t want to sleep in the street…(an overnighter? Does that mean they’ll lobby for a night-CAP? )
So these guys are super rich…they have 10 million to spend to spin Cuomo’s $$$$$man’s agenda and are STILL charging $$$ to pump up their troops?? Wow…so these are the bad guys…rich and cheap.
Enough…let’s talk about good guys.
Here’s a toast to the middle class families that form the spine, the head, the heart, the soul of our nation….
I’ll drink to them.
