Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion in Fantasy Baseball Talk Posted May 12, 2020 5 minutes ago, tonycpsu said: What are you talking about? The state budget is in shambles right now. States don't produce money with a printing press, nor can they run a trade deficit. I'm suggesting that, instead of trying to chase down dollars from out-of-state volunteers or beg for more from the feds, he raise revenues from New York's existing taxpayers, particularly those with extra slack in their budget, like a finance industry that was in large part exempt from the lockdown. You'd prefer what, exactly? They don’t have to print money. Here, it’s easy: Step 1- Tell all volunteers they’re excused and will not have to pay state taxes. Step 2- Whatever else you need to be (raise tax rates if you wish. Those corporations can move out of state if they wish. I don’t care.) *They shouldn’t be used as a political pawn (sorry, you’re getting screwed unless the federal government steps in and gives us money).
