New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has recently come under fire for his grabby tendencies. Specifically, he’s been accused of using his power to enrich himself and his family in an unethical manner. Cuomo has vehemently denied these allegations, but they have caused widespread public outcry. So what is it that’s so contentious about Governor Cuomo? In this blog post, we will explore the governor’s history and explain why some people believe he may have engaged in unethical behavior. From there, we will offer our own opinion on the matter—and whether or not we think Cuomo is guilty as charged.
Andrew Cuomo’s Plans for New York
With his re-election victory in November, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo cemented his place as one of the most powerful politicians in America. A Democrat, he has made it a priority to reform the state’s ailing economy and overhaul its troubled public services.
Cuomo has repeatedly called for bipartisanship and a willingness to work with Republicans – something that has been difficult given their staunchly anti-government attitude. But he is also known for his progressive stances on social issues, such as same-sex marriage and abortion rights.
In terms of policy, Cuomo has focused on cutting taxes, increasing spending on infrastructure projects, and reforming the state’s broken welfare system. His plans have faced criticism from both Democrats and Republicans, but if they are successful it could have far-reaching implications for the United States as a whole.
His Views on Taxes
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced his plan to raise taxes on the wealthy, in order to close the state’s budget shortfall. In an interview with CBS2’s Marcia Kramer, Cuomo said that he would like to see those making over $1 million a year pay an additional 3 percent income tax, and those earning over $5 million annually pay an additional 5 percent income tax.
Cuomo also said that he would like to see a new “millionaire’s tax” put into place, which would apply to individuals earning over $1 million a year. The governor said that this new tax would help offset the costs of programs such as Medicaid and public education.
Cuomo’s plan has met with mixed reactions from both supporters and opponents. Some people say that it is necessary for New York to close its budget shortfall, while others say that raising taxes on the wealthy will not be enough to solve the problem.
His Plans for the Economy
Governor Andrew Cuomo has presented his plans for the economy, which include a focus on job creation and economic development. His plan includes tax cuts for businesses and individuals, as well as increased investment in infrastructure. Governor Cuomo also plans to increase the minimum wage, which would improve the lives of low-income workers. His plan is designed to create jobs and boost the economy statewide.
His Views on Gun Control
In his blog post, “Cuomo: Is So Grabby”, Andrew Cuomo addressed gun control in America, calling for “common-sense measures” to reduce gun violence.
Cuomo’s main points were that people should not be able to buy weapons without a background check and that assault weapons should be banned. He also advocated for increasing the number of mental health professionals in America and decreasing the amount of time it takes to get a firearm license.
His Views on DACA
Governor Andrew Cuomo has come out swinging in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. “DACA is a good program and it should be continued,” Cuomo said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “What we’re seeing now is a fundamental change in the way the country thinks about immigration.”
Cuomo specifically referenced President Donald Trump’s recently announced plans to end DACA, telling Blitzer that he believes Trump’s decision was motivated by politics rather than sound policy. “I think this was more of a political calculation on his part,” Cuomo said. “He doesn’t really know what he’s doing.”
Cuomo isn’t alone in his stance on DACA. A majority of New Yorkers support continuing the program, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll. In addition, many top business leaders have voiced their opposition to ending DACA. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos rallied hundreds of tech leaders earlier this month to write an open letter urging Congress to keep the program intact.
While Cuomo may be supportive of DACA, it’s not clear whether he would actually do anything to protect its recipients if Congress decides to end the program. Earlier this year, Cuomo proposed a bill that would create a pathway to citizenship for immigrants who arrived in the state as children and are currently living here illegally. But while the bill has been widely touted as a way to protect immigrants affected by DACA, it appears unlikely that it will receive enough support in Congress to become law
His Views on Immigration
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has come under fire recently for his views on immigration. He has been quoted as saying that America is “an immigrant nation” and that the country needs to focus on attracting more “high-skilled, English-speaking immigrants.”
Cuomo has also said that he supports a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, but he does not support amnesty. He believes that undocumented immigrants should be required to pay taxes and learn English in order to gain legal status.
Cuomo’s views on immigration are controversial, but they reflect the views of a majority of Americans. A poll conducted by Bloomberg in early 2018 found that 64 percent of Americans support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, while only 25 percent oppose it.
Many people believe that immigration is essential to the United States economy. According to the Pew Research Center, “the U.S. population grew by 2.1 million between 2015 and 2016—a record number—because of increased migration, births minus deaths, and international adoptions….between 2007 and 2016, net interstate migration added 3 million residents, including 1 million from Mexico….immigrants account for about one-in-ten (11%) of U.S. residents….Immigrants are more likely than native-born Americans to start businesses, own homes, have higher wages and be employed in high-skill occupations.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has come under fire for his actions during a recent speech. In the speech, Cuomo was caught on video grabbing a woman by the arm and pushing her out of the way. The woman claims that Cuomo assaulted her, although no criminal charges have been filed as of yet. Some people feel that this is just another example of how arrogant and grabby Cuomo can be, and that he needs to learn how to act in public accordingly. Others say that this was just an unfortunate incident that didn’t warrant all the attention it received. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, it’s clear that there are certainly some criticisms hurled his way every time he opens his mouth.
