The New Deal for New York campaign worked with Public Accountability Initiative to release, “The Committee to Scam New York: How the Committee to Save New York’s Big Business Elites Dodge Taxes, Score Handouts, Get Bailed Out, and Still Want More.”
The report — available in full below and at PAI’s website – is scathing compilation of existing and original research that documents how that committee is fighting for a “cuts only” approach to the state budget — cuts that would have severe impacts on communities and families across the state.
Specifically, the report shows that big businesses associated with the Committee are some of New York State’s top recipients of government bailouts, subsidies, and tax breaks. A partial rollback of government aid to these large, ultra-profitable corporations and wealthy individuals would close New York State’s budget gap.
