CYNTHIA'S STRATEGY? Nixon Says ‘HIGHER TAXES’ Make NY More ‘BUSINESS FRIENDLY’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.30.18

Democratic challenger for Governor of New York Cynthia Nixon dodged questions surrounding her massive tax scheme Thursday; claiming the state’s high taxes actually makes the region more “business friendly.”

Nixon was speaking with MSNBC when she was asked if New York’s wealthy residents and their businesses would leave should she implement her “millionaire’s tax.”

“If you were successful in imposing a millionaire’s tax or corporate tax, what makes you think those companies and those wealthy people would stay in New York?” asked MSNBC’s Rick Tyler.

“I think that wealthy individuals have the liberty of choosing where they want to live. If high taxes were a thing that would make wealthy people move, we wouldn’t have so many wealthy people in New York,” said Nixon.

“If we want to create jobs for New Yorkers, investing in infrastructure is the most effective way to do it, and it’s a way to prepare our state for the future and make it more business friendly,” she concluded.

Cortez comments come just hours after her liberal colleague Cynthia Nixon squared off against Governor Andrew Cuomo, where the sitting NY leader referred to federal ICE agents as a “bunch of thugs.”

Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left millions of Americans scratching their heads this week; boldly claiming that the ‘Democratic Party’ was behind the 1969 lunar landing despite Republican President Richard Nixon occupying the White House at the time.

Cortez was speaking at the Netroots Nation in New Orleans Tuesday when she credited the Democratic Party with the iconic Apollo 11 lunar landing mission; telling the packed crowd that “We are the party of King, of Roosevelt, of the ones who went to the moon!”

The self-described Democratic socialist made national headlines last month; stumbling through a host of issues after she referred to Israeli settlers as “the occupiers of Palestine.”
