Taxing Issues

The flap over Denny Farrell's tax "philosophy" is a good start to the upcoming gubernatorial debate. While we have great admiration for Eliot Spitzer and his potential to shake Albany up in a good way, we also feel that John Faso's anti-tax platform will help focus attention on the overburdened tax payers in this state.

Denny, who has a history of being anti-business, particularly small stores, needs to sit quietly in the corner and allow this debate to go forward. His continued pontification on policy issues is only going to shed unwanted light on a particular big government mindset that is too prevalent in the NYS Assembly. Spitzer needs to keep a good distance from all this.
