Bill de Blasio’s a garbage New Yorker and all-around garbage human being, but he’s far from the only one. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s no slouch, either:
"F**k you, pay me." –> Health workers that volunteered to come to NY during pandemic have to pay state income tax: Cuomo https://t.co/W6J5no7pNq

“We’re not in a position to provide any subsidies right now because we have a $13 billion deficit,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “So there’s a lot of good things I’d like to do, and if we get federal funding, we can do, but it would be irresponsible for me to sit here looking at a $13 billion deficit and say I’m gonna spend more money, when I can’t even pay the essential services.”
Even though the state government asked thousands of people to come to New York from out of state to help fight coronavirus, they will have to pay New York state taxes, even on income they might make from their home states that they’re paid while in New York.
Cuomo said he needs help from Washington in order to cover budget deficits from COVID-19, let alone subsidize state income tax for essential workers that flocked to New York’s aid.
Any out-of-state resident who’s come to the Empire State to work on coronavirus relief is subject to the tax after 14 days here.
If New York’s state government is going to flush money down the toilet, they need money to flush. Why not punish the people who literally risked their lives to come help fight COVID19?
Well, when not working those long shifts trying to save the lives of New Yorkers they had the privilege of taking advantages of all the wonderful services the city offers.

Thank you for coming to our state and saving lives. As a reward, you get to give us money. https://t.co/j2lCErY8cp

This is such an FU to those healthcare workers. What a disgrace.
