Opposes Cuomo’s Proposals for Tax Cuts to the Rich, Job Cuts, Says Single Payer Health Care is the Solution to Medicaid

Howie Hawkins, the former Green Party candidate for Governor, said today that Cuomo’s proposals to resolve the state’s alleged $9 billion state budget deficit by giving a $5 billion tax cut for the wealthy and laying off more than 10,000 state workers was doomed to failure and would be rejected by state lawmakers.

Hawkins challenged Cuomo’s claim of transparency, saying Cuomo’s penchant for micromanaging was freezing out the public and was at least partially to blame for Cuomo’s inability to attract qualified Commissioners and senior staff. Most of his Cabinet remains unfilled a month into his administration.
