Andrew Cuomo Drives Three Nails Into the Upstate New York Coffin

Andrew Cuomo has said he wants to revive the upstate economy but he’s driven three nails into the coffin of Upstate including a ban on shale gas development.

According to the Urban Dictionary, a nail in the coffin is an event leading to inevitable failure. Upstate New York is in a generations-long decline which was already underway 56 years ago, when President Kennedy noted it in his 1962 speech to the New York Economic Club.

Governor Cuomo has said he wants to revive the upstate economy. However, he has driven three nails into the coffin of Upstate: paid family medical leave, the $15 hourly minimum wage, and the ban on shale gas development. All three are popular progressive policies and job-killers.

Only New York, New Jersey and California have paid family medical leave, a policy guaranteed to inhibit business development.
