Upstate job growth doesn't exist in New York ,your corrupt governmental leaders are only interested in the city where there votes are ,and where do you think those subsities come from ,thin air no the tax paying public .New York has taxed you to death check all taxed items in New York gas tax ,property tax ,taxes on electric ,phones ,sales tax on almost every item you buy ,it is the highest taxed state and you recieve nothing in return .During your last snow storm almost all state plow trucks were sent to New York City leaving upstate shut down with no roads being plowed only town roads ,that is cuomo ,deblasio ,and tonko along with schumer .REMEMBER THAT NEXT ELECTION before you pull the lever !You are one of the highest taxed states and recieve very little in return ,TRUELY THINK ABOUT THAT !Tonko's legacy bridge to nowhere when the water and sewer lines in Amsterdam were failing !They already had a walkway on the existing bridge ,ride down and take a look ,it's on the western side of the RT.30 bridge .Truely wasteful spending for a legacy !

I thought that Gov, Combo did not want any non liberal thinking people in New York. Maybe there are more non-libs than they think.

Anonymous ,you need to face reality ,New York government is one of the most corrupt of any state .Where you could find officials with such corrupt minds is beyond one's imagination .You truely need to look over your phone bills at the tax parts along with any utility bills you have and you shall see that you can hardly understand where they dreamed up these ways of taxing you so you are unable to understand your bills .Gasoline for your auto is taxed beyond one's reasoning !This is all due to the Democrates protecting illegals and giving your hard earned money to entitlement people that are to lazy to get dressed to go grocery shopping so they go in their pajamas.SUCH A SAD STATE and State Government encourages it !If you don't have sense enough to vote them out just keep paying more and more .

New York has been doomed since the democrates took control as they believe in taxing you to death if you work, as they say money is power so keep the working class broke !We need to rid this great state of government corruption and until the people take this Empire State back and convict the crooked officials ,jail them ,take away their hugh pensions that they have set up for themselves and the people that backed them ,if this is not done by our election prosess the state will remain an entitlement state and continue to unravel !They talk about crooked hillary ,keep looking and you need not look far !

A number of years ago I heard a speaker tell the audience how to become the owner of a small business in New York State. He said all one had to do was to buy a big business, and wait. Pretty soon they'd own a small business.

You have to accept that the winner won an the losers are making fools of themselves.

Anything is better than another 20 trillion in debt for welfare fairies like yourself.

Just because you live off the system doesn't mean the rest of us aren't winning, with the NASDAC soaring I've done very very well in the market. You should get a job and try it.

Now let's talk about the TOPIC you seem desperate to change..... your welfare cabal upstate there is imploding and a lot of us who WON and VOTED for anyone but Hillary are quite happy to finally get to see it.

Upstate's low jobs, no economy and ignorant liberals are why the jobs and businesses left. Meanwhile the same handful of losers do better and better for themselves. Blaming Trump for Obama and Cuomo's failure is nothing but ludicrous.
Their track record simply speaks for itself NYC and downstate don't have these problems so much but its stupid funny to watch people just keep re electing idiots. Look at your assemblymen. Jokes abound.
