It’s unlikely Hochul will vote for tax cuts

In her efforts to win re-election, Rep. Kathy Hochul has decided to employ the class envy card via her television ads mocking Chris Collins for his wealth and material accumulations, just as any Obama clone would do.

As Erie County executive, I believe Collins did not take any salary until the fiscal mess he inherited was cleaned up. His wealth, which is substantial, was earned in the private sector. Hochul’s household receives $310,900 in taxpayer funds, reflected in the salaries of herself and her husband, U.S. Attorney William Hochul.

With a household receiving that much money from taxpayers, and having zero private-sector experience, what are the odds of Hochul voting to cut taxes, which have been the lifeblood in funding her lifestyle for her entire career?
