New York isn’t getting its fair share under the failed status quo. Each year, Washington politicians take $48 billion more from New York taxpayers than we get back from the federal government. That’s far more than any other state in the country. Career politicians caused this mess. For too long, New Yorkers have been held hostage by career politicians more focused on their own narrow interests than doing what’s right for our state. Meanwhile, here at home we have crumbling roads and bridges, our public transit systems are falling apart and our access to clean water is jeopardized. As a businesswoman and a negotiator, I will fight to put New York First in the United States Senate and ensure we get our fair share of federal funding to rebuild and improve our infrastructure.
