A tax is a tax is a tax

Have you seen these pro-Andrew Cuomo commercials that are running on TV?

Akin to campaign season ads, they laud the New York governor for getting a state budget approved that contains "no new taxes."

Well, yeah. But the budget also makes massive cuts in state aid to public school districts. And how exactly are those districts making up for the lost revenue? By raising our taxes, of course.

Either way, we pay.
