Albany, NY - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will travel to Washington, D.C., this week for a meeting with President Donald Trump to discuss how recent federal tax changes are hurting the state’s bottom line.

The Democratic governor told reporters on Monday that he’ll urge the president to reconsider a provision in the recent tax overhaul that sharply limits a federal deduction for state and local taxes. Cuomo has blamed that change for a recent dip in state tax receipts, saying it has put New York at a disadvantage when it comes to attracting and retaining wealthy residents.

State officials announced last week that income tax receipts have dipped more than $2 billion below projections for the fiscal year ending next month.

“This is not an academic discussion, my friends. This is real life,” Cuomo told reporters on Monday. “This changes the economic trajectory of the state. People are mobile. And they will go to a better tax environment.”

While Trump has praised the tax overhaul, Cuomo said he hopes the deduction limit could be eliminated now that Democrats control the U.S. House. Trump signed the tax reforms into law in late 2017.

Cuomo plans to travel to Washington on Tuesday and return to New York later in the day, a spokesman said.

New Yorkers need to pay their fair share, plain and simple. You people are on all the government programs you need to pay up, no need for the rest of the country to support all your liberal programs.

Just out of curiosity, did prior law or current law in NYS conform closer with Halacha in terms of abortion. Or do you like most yodels screaming about it have no idea and don't care and it is just another platform you adopted due to lack of knowledge. Even Aguda has to twist words in how they condemn it as they know what Judaism allows is quiet a bit different than you most likely think it is. If I recall, Aguda's position was that abortion law should conform to Halacha, but they never said what the Halacha is, rather they just condemned the new law. Further, if we were to follow Aguda's position, we would just end up in a position where US law is determined by religious law, which is a ridiculous idea.
