We’ve let the members of the so-called Independent Democratic Conference know that they are failing to pass the progressive legislation New Yorkers want – now it’s time to tell the man who benefits the most from the IDC: Governor Andrew Cuomo.
With the Assembly under Democratic control and the Senate under Republican/IDC control, Cuomo gets to play the big dealmaker, brokering watered-down budgets and legislation that he can hold up as proof of his ability to be bipartisan.
Other New York politicians are telling the IDC to get in line, but Cuomo won’t say anything negative about the IDC. After all, if the IDC goes away, so does much of his power. That’s why he’s eager to work with them and to keep control of the Senate out of Democratic hands.
Join us as we tell Governor Cuomo that his IDC has failed New Yorkers. It’s failed to give us women’s rights, real Raise the Age, meaningful minimum wage raises, GENDA, modern abortion legislation, adequately funded schools, tenant protection, and more. Join us as we tell Governror Cuomo that getting things done for New Yorkers is more important than looking bipartisan to outsiders.
