Governor Cuomo Is Still Governor One Percent

Look for the quid pro quo

Thanks for the piece, very important. You missed mentioning, though: even the otherwise important gay rights legislation went through only as part of a deal (or deal out) to Wall Street. Cuomo was able to get this through only with the “sudden” and, as the media presented it, “inexplicable” change of heart of two Republican legislators. A week later we learned the reason, when the governor announced that he would waive the environmental review of the gas extraction from New York‘'s Marcellus shale reservers. Hmm…
