As rank and file Democrats debate whether they want a significant shot at prosperity through public investment with Bernie Sanders or the Obama status quo with Hillary Clinton, 50 New York millionaires, mostly women, wrote an open letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo. They asked to have their taxes raised, saying of our crumbling society:
We cannot afford to ignore these challenges. As business leaders and investors, we know that the long-term stability and growth of a company requires investments in both its human capital and physical infrastructure. The same is true for our state.
This is precisely the message the Preservation Society has been debating since 1933. It seems that many of our esteemed fellow ruling class-mates are “getting it” and recognizing the dire need for public investment.
