    Demonstrations, poll fuel NY millionaire tax push

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The push for a higher tax on New Yorkers making more than $1 million a year is getting fresh life with a new poll showing overwhelming support, a high-profile rally on Monday and the strengthening Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City.

    The Siena College poll found 72 percent of New York voters support the tax to avoid further budget cuts. Just 26 percent oppose the proposal by powerful Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

    Also Monday, the union-backed "99 New York" rally supported extending the current so-called "millionaire's tax" on New Yorkers with incomes over $200,000. It's due to expire Dec. 31.

    Standing in the way of renewing the current surcharge on the wealthy and Silver's millionaire tax plan are Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his fiscal ally, the Republican majority of the Senate. Cuomo says taxing wealthier New Yorkers at higher levels would likely send the rich to Connecticut and New Jersey, taking their income tax revenue and jobs with them.

    Certainly OWS 99% are having an impact -- not that anyone in power would want to

    acknowledge it -- !!!

    2. "taking their income tax revenue and jobs with them."

    Yeah, right.

    Don't worry. There are plenty of people willing and able to fill that breach.
    Of course, New Jersey and Connecticut could make their plutocrats pay their taxes too instead of becoming an "on-shore tax haven" to the chagrin of 99% of their citizens.

    5. So, right now they are benifitting from living in NYS without paying their fair share?

    Let them take their money and go; it's not doing us any good now, is it? Bloomberg should be first in line!
    "Let them take their money and go; it's not doing us any good now"

    They are soooo stupid! One can only shake your head at the cluelessness. Liberals, they ARE PAYING taxes now. If they leave THEY WON'T PAY ANY TAXES, so you lose not only the additional tax, but ALSO THE TAXES THEY ARE PAYING NOW. They may not leave immediately, but eventually they will leave.

    And they can't figure out why companies move over seas. It's not just that they can pay workers less.

    6. This is just a prelude to the financial pain we are going to cause the 1%ers.

    AFAIAC, they all need the death of a thousand cuts, with an added bonus of salt poured in the wounds.

    The rich should just leave NYC until it becomes a fiscal ghost town.

    And their true motivation slips out.

    Wealthy New Yorkers have been fleeing because of the ridiculous taxes for years, and New York is now feeling the pain, but that doesn't matter to the crazies. They just want to hurt them.

    I am sure Gov Christie in New Jersey would love to have them.
    Liberals are proof that evolution is only a theory. Nothing that stupid could evolve past a monkey.

    Do the protesters really think they are going to cause these major companies pain? Or that they have the power to put them out of business. When these companies do leave, what of the newly unemployed?

    These are just such stupid, stupid people.
