I like Humble Pie, the band that is. They were always considered to be the rock and rollers rock and rollers. Once I read Governor Cuomo’s thirty day amendments to his recently released budget proposals, I couldn’t get their song, Thirty Days in the Hole to stop resonating between my ears.
The Governor apparently doesn’t like humble pie. Not the band, but the kind defined by most dictionaries as “a figurative serving of humiliation usually in the form of a forced submission, apology or retraction.” Apparently he is serious about pushing back at the injuries inflicted upon New Yorkers and other high tax jurisdiction taxpayers by the recently enacted federal cap on deducting state and local taxes. While the New York State Tax Department recently issued a report addressing the perils faced by New Yorkers from the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (see my January 22, 2018 post), Governor Cuomo has gone from report to proposal in no time at all.
