This is only the Progressive New York news for the last week of March and you have to multiply these announcements by 56 weeks. It’s a socialist, globalist non-stop sell out. It will spread throughout the nation if Hillary assumes the presidency.
First off for the week of March 27th, the Comptroller, far-left Thomas DiNapoli, has partnered the New York State Common Retirement Fund with the Church of England to attack ExxonMobil’s global warming policies.
The team will demand Exxon prepare for a lower carbon future in line with the sham Paris agreement and they will go through shareholders.
Global warming extremists are already trying to imprison Exxon executives for allegedly denying global warming though they ‘knew’ it was true.
In the same weekly address New York state announced an investment of tax dollars, not in Harlem, or impoverished upstate New York, but rather in Northern Ireland – $7 million worth of investment.
It’s to assist Northern Ireland’s ‘dynamic economy.’ Too bad Bed Sty’s economy in Brooklyn, New York stinks and what a shame much of the Bronx is a mess and needs investment.
The money for Ireland is meant to “accelerate growth.”
How about Greenpoint’s economic resurgence?
I have nothing against the Irish and Irish blood runs through my veins but WTH! Are you KIDDING me?
This is the state that wallows in corporate welfare for the elite and is 51 out of 50 states the District of Columbia for creating a positive environment for small businesses.
New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli is trustee of the New York State Common Retirement Fund, the third largest public pension plan in the United States with more than one million members, retirees and beneficiaries from more than 3,000 state and local government employers.
New York is number two after California when it comes to debt with $388 billion owed, according to State Budget Solutions, a research and non-partisan advocacy group though the chart below has it at $363 billion. California is at almost $600 billion owed. The states’ debt is a serious problem for a federal government buried in debt.
Last year, Kentucky, New York and Texas paid only two-thirds of the payments needed to fully fund future pension benefits. California paid less than half of what’s needed. New Jersey paid just 19 percent.
A new national study estimates that New York’s two largest state-level pension systems have unfunded liabilities of at least $260 billion though it’s the 7th best funded state in the country.
