Cuomo Takes Budget to The People [VIDEO]

Andrew Cuomo, who has taken his budget barnstorming around the state, makes the case to New Yorkers who couldn’t make it to Rochester or Hempstead or Binghamton with a video delivered from the Red Room, which he calls the most beautiful room in the entire state Capitol.

Cuomo tries to pin the prospect of a government shutdown entirely on the legislature, and says that the threat of one is not enough to derail him from his economic agenda.

“I will not compromise the important work you elected me to do and I will not back down from my promise to the people of this great state. Even if the legislature causes a shutdown of government, it will only be temporary, and it will only delay, not derail our budget’s final passage,” he said.
