Gov. Andrew Cuomo is slamming the tax overhaul plan passed Thursday by the House of Representatives, saying it will be “poison” to New York.
Businesses, school leaders and progressive activists in New York also spoke out against the House vote and the provision to end the state and local tax deduction, saying they will be harmful to state residents.
The governor also criticized the tax plan as a corporate giveaway.
“This is a federal scam that they are running,” Cuomo said. “They call it a tax cut for the middle class. That’s baloney.”
