The assertion made by Professor Oren Levin-Waldman is succinct. He states, "It is foolhardy to believe that cutting programs as the Republicans suggest will simply reduce the deficit rather than be passed on to their cronies. But it is equally foolhardy to believe that raising taxes as the Democrats so often advocate will either be applied to reducing the deficit or to assisting the middle class. Taxing those at the top of the distribution does not reduce income inequality; rather boosting the incomes of those at the bottom does. This is because for income inequality to be reduced the percentage increase in wages at the bottom has to be higher than the percentage increase in wages at the top".  Join guest Prof. Oren-Waldman and host Hezi Aris as they engage in deciphering the issue on the "featured" BlogTalk Radio program, we focus on an Open Letter  from Wectchester County Conservative Chair Hugh Fox, Jr. Also, the departure of  Yonkers Deputy Mayor Sue Gerry, her replacement James Cavanaugh, and his questionale ties to the City of Yonkers as its consultant, Yonkers Parking Authority Board of Directors members, his recent marriage to Yonkers Planning Commissioner Wilson Kimball, and his disturbing conduct with Ms Kimball while Jim was President and CEO of the Battery Park City Authority in lower Manhattan, and Mr Cavanaugh's relationship as a "team member" of former NYS Senator Nick Spano's Empire Strategic Planning lobbying operation.
