Cuomo: NY State (Not Its People) "Entitled to a Vote on This Issue"

 

And no wonder Cuomo wants Albany --not the people-- to vote. Our newly-released poll shows a) New Yorkers don't want Albany deciding this issue, and b) if it was up to them, they'd vote to protect marriage.

The governor said Tuesday that he believed “the people are entitled to a vote on this issue.”

“It is an important issue, there’s been a lot of discussions, there’s a lot of opinions, there’s a lot of information, there’s been a lot of public demonstrations in this building, and I believe people are entitled to a vote,” he said. “Let the elected officials stand up and say yea or nay. I believe that’s how democracy works, and I believe the state is entitled to a vote on this issue.” -- NYTimes

Tell the New York Senators that the people are indeed entitled to a vote -- their own.
