WYSK: Another Brilliant Divide and Conquer Move By Governor Andrew Cuomo

You  should know that today, Governor Andrew Cuomo, the head of the Democratic Party in New York State, is all set to implement Machiavelli’s infamous “divide and conquer” technique right here in Albany.

You should know that Governor Cuomo’s has invited the 25 Members of the Senate Democrats to the Governor’s Mansion at 5PM  where he will present his Budget to us.  Following that meeting, Governor will present his Budget to the more than 100 Democratic members of the Assembly. And then at 7PM, Governor Cuomo will present his Budget to the Press.

It is important for you to know that it is Governor Cuomo is trying to present his Budget to Albany’s Democrats in 2 hours: first to the 25 Members of the Senate, and following that to the more than 100 Democrats in the Assembly – and then to the press.

This does not give us Democrats any time to ask any questions.

It is also important for you to know that Governor Cuomo has already presented his Budget to the Senate Republicans and the Independent Democratic Conference during lunch earlier on Tuesday, giving them time to ask a question or two.

This is a great divide and conquer move by the Governor — with a tremendous lack of respect for the Legislature.

I am Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz and this is what you should know.
