We have the highest tax burden in the nation, opioid overdoses plaguing our neighborhoods, a looming $4 billion projected state deficit, roads and bridges in desperate need of repair statewide, and yet state leaders focus their energy on legislating Tide Pods – what a joke.

When taxpayers get frustrated by the ineffectiveness of government and misuse of their tax dollars, they need look no further than the agenda of New York City Democrats’ over the past several days.
