Gov. Cuomo and Raising Taxes on the Rich

I applaud Governor Cuomo for recognizing the critical importance of universal pre-K and after-school programs for educational opportunity. He is right: we need the programs in NYC and statewide. But the statewide money he is proposing doesn’t even meet the needs of New York City alone, much less the whole state. Therefore it’s obvious that the Legislature and Governor should give New York City the leeway to raise its own taxes to ensure universal pre-K and after-school programs for all of New York’s children. The importance and feasibility of such an agreement are now in clear view thanks to the Governor’s commitment to these crucial programs.
