Cuomo takes budget-cuts message to Hudson Valley
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) visited the Hudson Valley today to garner support for deep spending cuts intended to solve the state budget crisis.
During a nearly hour-long speech at Manhattanville College, Cuomo repeated themes he outlined in his budget message earlier in the week.
"We keep passing budgets with 13-percent increases, running deficits, increasing taxes," he said. "The businesses are going to leave. The people leave. We're going to wind up here - alone."
According to Cuomo, the most difficult obstacle to overcome will be lobbyists who are entrenched in Albany.
