"Government in New York is too big, ineffective and expensive," the candidate's website proclaims. "We must get our state's fiscal house in order by immediately imposing a cap on state spending and freezing salaries of state public employees as part of a one-year emergency financial plan, committing to no increase in personal or corporate income taxes of sales taxes and imposing a local property tax cap."
Some right-wing Republican? No, it's Andrew Cuomo, son of three-term Democratic Gov. Mario Cuomo. Interestingly, he's the only Democrat with a significant polling lead in the governor races in our eight largest states, which together have 48 percent of the nation's population.

What a phony. This succincly demonstrates how politicians will say anything to try and get elected to office. A Democrat who pretends to be a libertarian leaning Republican? ROTFLMAO

Only NOW, in the face of Tea Party patriots and other piissed off American's do Democrats give a damn about big government.

Pathetic.

He only understands the ballot box. He could care less about Big Government and its ever-expanding reach.

Andrew Cuomo went after civil servants double-dipping. Yet for some reason, he doesn't see that his own running mate is guilty of the same, collecting his Ret. Police Chief pension while drawing a mayoral salary.
Mayor Robert Duffy defends pension; vows to govern during campaign | democratandchronicle.com | Democrat and Chronicle
"Both Duffy and Cuomo, the state attorney general, have railed against pension abuses and the resulting burden on local governments. Cuomo took particular aim in past years at public school officials collecting pensions from one job, then receiving waivers and returning to work in other school districts."

Cuomo goes after the schools, yet it's ok for Duffy to be doing the same exact thing, pulling almost $200K in between police pension ($72K) and mayoral Pay ($127K)

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss...

There have long been fiscal conservatives and fiscal moderates in the Democratic Party. Both parties are designed to be "big tents".
