Working Families Party Ad

The Working Families Party supports increasing taxes and more spending, and that is evident if you read their platform. They along with Alliance for Quality Education, have released a new commercial in the Albany, Buffalo, Long Island, New York City, Rochester and Syracuse markets attacking the tax cap.

These are the type of ads you would typically see in the spring around budget time. The tax cap and the budget cuts debate occurring at the same time are accentuating the strength of the grip that special interest holds on Albany. Can the incumbent legislators escape the grip to benefit the voters or do they walk the tight rope during an election?

The taxcode, whether in DC or Albany, is the politican's #1 weapon / ploy to get into office and stay in office.

Say it's 1,000 pages (only example): 990 are for tax breaks, business incentives, loopholes, and such. Ten are instructions for us to fill out our Federal 1040 or NYS IT 201.
