Be the Governor

cuts

As part of his ongoing effort to fully explain the magnitude of the budget situation challenging the state, Governor Paterson today unveiled a new website.

At the heart of the website’s goal is a state budget calculator that lets you try to balance the budget.

Critics will quickly note that the calculator does not allow you the option of raising taxes. This is keeping with the Governor’s pledge to focus only on cuts by ruling out tax increases. Paterson, in a stark reversal of his liberal Democrat years in the Legislature, has embraced the Laffer Curve in his opposition to tax increases.

There is a place on the new website to share your comments with the Governor and his staff.
