Citizen Action Applauds Assembly Tax Plan

Albany, NY – In response to the New York State Assembly’s proposal to boost New York’s economy by creating a fair tax system, Karen Scharff, executive director of Citizen Action of New York, said:

“New York families are suffering every day because the economy is only working for the super-rich. The State Assembly’s millionaires’ tax proposal recognizes that there’s no shortage of wealth in New York and that we need a fair tax structure for our communities to thrive. Boosting our economy means providing services that people need, making sure our kids have a quality education, and creating good, living wage jobs – it doesn’t mean more tax breaks and subsidies for CEOs. We applaud Speaker Heastie and the Assembly Majority for leading the way on fixing New York’s economy so that it works for everyone, not just Wall Street. It’s time for the Senate Republicans and Governor Cuomo to follow the Assembly’s lead and invest in New York’s families.”
