James Woods slaps Gov. Cuomo with brutal reality check for whining about New York’s fleeing taxpayers

Outspoken Hollywood actor James Woods has an idea for whiny New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo regarding the state’s growing exodus of citizens.

“Well, you can replace those citizens with newborns. Oh, wait…” the actor tweeted Wednesday.



The tweet referenced several quandaries the governor is mired in.

First, Cuomo has of late taken to blaming his many failures — his many, many, many failures — on everybody else but himself. Take for instance the ongoing exodus from New York spurred by his exorbitant taxes and draconian regulations. Also take into consideration the state’s growing budget shortfalls.

The liberal governor was quick to place blame for this exodus — the state’s population is reportedly declining faster than any other state — and the scapegoat, so-to-speak, is Florida. Yes, Florida.

“This week the Governor of New York blamed budget shortfalls on the state of Florida,” Miami station WFOR reported last Friday. “He said New Yorkers are fleeing to the sunshine state to save big time on taxes.”

Cuomo is apparently furious that residents are so fed-up with endless-skyrocketing taxes that they’re choosing to relocate to one of the seven states that hosts the lowest income tax rate in the country, 0 percent.

And because so many residents are fleeing New York, the state is collecting less revenue. Coupled with Cuomo’s refusal to stop funding wasteful programs, this has caused the state to suffer from a perpetual shortfall/deficit.

But God forbid the proud Democrat governor change his policies.

Second, Woods’ tweet references the governor’s widely criticized decision to enact a law last month that declared the killing of unborn babies up until the moment of birth to be a “fundamental right.”

The Hollywood actor’s tweet was essentially a savage quip aimed at highlighting how many babies are effectively murdered every year by abortion, a legal medical procedure that’s practically fully unregulated now in the radical state of New York.


As noted by a large number of social media users, maybe people would be more inclined to remain in New York if Cuomo would stop robbing his citizens of their money, stop regulating corporations out of business and stop promoting policies that most Americans oppose.


The latter tweeter nailed it. Though Democrat policies destroy cities and drive people away, Democrats continue to double, triple and quadruple down on their skewed agenda.
