    Breaking Down the State Budget Details (spectrumlocalnews.com)

    A few thoughts...

    -NY has cemented it's status as a safe haven for illegal immigration

    -NY is clearly against large profits from the private business sector and millionaires (job creators)

    -NYS continues to be one of the most expensive school systems in the united states, while ranking in the middle (24th) per this Analysis of school systems by state: Where does New York rank? - silive.com
    there are clearly issues that money can't fix.

    As with any budget, there are some areas that we need significantly more funding for. Healthcare and infrastructure IMO deserved a larger piece of the pie then payouts to illegal immigrants at the taxpayers expense.

    And this is just despicable

    The latest NYS budget is about the size of Florida and Texas budgets combined. It almost matches California's budget, even though California has twice as many people. Taxes on the high earners are about to become the highest in the country. I'd leave yesterday if I could...

    This is exactly why LEGAL immigration is so important and why what's being allowed at the Border is a crisis for generations to come.

    SS#, Tax ID, Paying into SS, Medicare, eligibility for Medicaid, SUI, Photo ID to Vote.....and more are tied to being a LEGAL participant in our democracy.

    Until then, the law abiding citizens of the great country will continue to carry the burden for the rest (growing number)

    You have a Socialist mentality masquerading as Democrats.
