KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL S4239 TO STEM POPULATION OUTFLOW

SENATOR KRUEGER'S CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL, S4239, IS A "MUST HAVE" IN ORDER TO SALVAGE NEW YORK STATE'S DWINDLING POPULATION.

OUR LOYAL RESIDENTS CAN NO LONGER CONTINUE TO RAISE THEIR FAMILIES HERE. THE PERCENTAGE OF TAX DOLLARS OWED, VERSUS WHAT PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO EARN, HAS FORCED MANY CITIZENS TO RETHINK THEIR LIVES AND FUTURES.

NEW YORK MUST CREATE A LARGER EMPLOYMENT BASE, ESPECIALLY IN UPSTATE AND NORTHERN NEW YORK. OUR SONS AND OUR DAUGHTERS ARE LEAVING TO FIND MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT IN THE CITIES OR OTHER STATES. AS OUR TAX SYSTEM NOW STANDS, THEY WILL 'NOT' BE COMING BACK TO RETIRE IN OUR BEAUTIFUL STATE.

WILL UPSTATE BE ONLY FOR TOURISTS?? WHO WILL TEND TO TO THE NEEDS OF THOSE THAT WE ADVERTISE SO HEAVILY TO HAVE VISIT OUR STATE? ?

WHOSE CHILDREN WILL ATTEND OUR WELL EQUIPT SCHOOLS ?

THIS KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL, S4239, WILL GIVE IMMEDIATE RELIEF AND 'HOPE' TO THOSE WHO ARE NOW SAYING; "WE CAN STAY HERE NO LONGER".

I HAVE HEARD OF MANY BURDENED TAXPAYERS, WHO, WHEN SEEKING A SOLUTION TO THEIR TAX SITUATION, HAVE ENCOUNTERED THINGS LIKE; "WELL NOW, HAVE YOU CONSIDERED SELLING YOUR HOME?" or, "WELL, IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD IT, THEN SELL AND BUY SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN AFFORD!"

THE FACT IS, THAT WHEN MOST OF THESE PEOPLE BOUGHT THEIR HOMES, THEY PROBABLY COULD AFFORD IT! THAT HOME WAS PURCHASED AND PAID OFF BY HARD WORK. NOW, IF THEY WANT TO SELL THEIR HOME, IT SHOULD BE THEIR DECISION, (NOT SOME OUTSIDE FORCE THAT TELLS THEM IT IS NOW IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO PAY THEIR TAXES, WHICH ARE NOW HIGHER THAN THEIR MORTGAGE EVER THOUGHT OF BEING !), BUT, YOU JUST DON'T SELL THE HOME THAT YOU LOVE UNLESS THERE IS NO OTHER WAY !

SO, IF THEY SELL THEIR TREASURED HOME, (EXAMPLE: SAY THEY BOUGHT IT IN 1976 FOR $30,000 AND ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO SELL IT FOR $140,000. WHAT THEN ? THEY CANNOT EVEN RECOUP ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY THAT CUTE LITTLE CONDO THAT HAS A $240,000. PRICE TAG. 'IF' THEY CAN EVEN QUALIFY FOR THE LOAN. THEY WILL NOW HAVE A NEW MORTGAGE (THEY HAD NONE BEFORE...), MAINTENANCE FEES, LETS NOT FORGERT THE TAXES......... AND.....THEY HAVE NO LAND, LESS SQUARE FOOTAGE, NEW NEIGHBORS, (THEY LIKED THE OLD ONES JUST FINE), AND PROPABLY NO PETS. WHAT A DEAL..............

MOST OF THESE GOOD PEOPLE PLANNED AND SAVED FOR THEIR RETIRMENT. NO, I AM NOT BLAMING THE CURRENT FISCAL BREAKDOWN FOR THEIR INABILITY TO MEET THEIR TAX REQUIREMENT. THIS IS THE FAULT OF A FAULTY SYSTEM THAT NEEDS TO BE TOTALLY REFORMED.

THE KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL, S4239, IS THE BEST STEP THAT WE CAN TAKE TO GUARANTEE IMMEDIATE RELIEF TO THOSE IN DESPERATE NEED. THE SECOND PHASE OF THE KRUEGER BILL IS THE OMNIBUS BILL, A TOTAL REFORM PACKAGE THAT SHOULD BE ENACTED SOON AFTER THE KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL IS ENACTED.

BUT FIRST, PASS THE KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL S4239, THIS SESSION !
