Credit Where Credit Is Due

May 11th, 2011at 07:59am Posted by Eli

Sure, Andy Cuomo may be governing like a Republican, and his policy of shafting public workers to preserve tax cuts may be more popular with Republican voters than Democratic ones, but at least he’s got one issue right:

Cuomo demanded the Legislature pass the major pillars of his agenda: legalization of same-sex marriage, ethics reform and a property tax cap.

“June 20 is the day that the Legislature ends, and June 20 is D-Day for us,” Cuomo said. “Tell your legislators it’s very simple: Pass the bills or don’t come home. Period.”

While his support for marriage equality is heartening (property tax cap, not so much), I feel obliged to point out that Democrats have a lot more latitude to be progressive on social issues, because most corporate donors don’t really care about marriage equality or choice one way or the other.  So… yay, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a profile in courage.
