15. Good for him for wanting to look like he's taxing the rich.
That's a big step up for Cuomo, who ran on a "no top-earners tax increase" platform.

I hope some day in the not-to-distant future he will return to the ideals of the Democratic party and ACTUALLY tax the rich.

Quoted from a linked article:
The leaders were discussing establishing one or more new tax rates for the highest-earning New Yorkers, which would still be lower than their rate this year, when there is a temporary surcharge in place, but higher than it would have been if the surcharge were allowed to end. New rates could go into effect at the start of next year.
