ALBANY -- Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo gave a campaign season sound clip to the Republicans this morning.
Talking during a radio interview about how years of big education aid increases haven't made New York's students the best-performing, Cuomo added that the state can't keep raising taxes to pay for large public school state aid hikes.
"We're the highest taxed state in the nation,'' Cuomo said.
It brought a we-told-you-so response from the state GOP.
"He acknowledged the same thing before he took office so essentially that's a tacit admission that he has failed to change New York's status as the tax capital,'' said David Laska, a spokesman for the state Republican Party.
