Look, kids! It’s Bill Weld!
ALBANY, N.Y – Republican candidate for governor Bill Weld proposed Tuesday that New York eliminate the personal income tax for people making up to $75,000.
“That’s a living wage,” he said. “I think that would be a great step” to stemming the flow of New York college graduates leaving the state for better opportunities.
At first I thought, “Wow, I make less than half of a living wage.” And then I realized I don’t know anyone in my field (journalism) or age group (millenials) who makes within shooting distance of $75,000. So, there are two possibilites.
1)Bill Weld = insane.
2)Everyone I know = will die of tuberculosis.
