Congressman Begs Goldman Sachs to Stay in New York City
News recently broke that Goldman Sachs may move its asset management division, with about $8 billion in annual revenue, from New York City to Florida.
In response, during an interview on CNBC, US Congressman from New York Tom Suozzi begged Goldman Sachs to not leave New York.
“First of all, let’s say to Goldman Sachs, please don’t leave us. We’re in a desperate time in New York right now and we need you, you’re important to us. We want you to stay.”
But Suozzi doesn’t think New York’s high taxes, destructive COVID lockdowns, and financial mismanagement are to blame for the exodus.
Instead, he blames the 2017 federal tax cuts, specifically the cap on SALT deductions which allowed state and local taxes to be deducted from federal taxes owed.
And in true Bolshevik politician fashion, Suozzi thinks rage and ridicule is the only way to solve the problem.
Suozzi said, “Anyone who contributes money to politicians who don’t support the reinstatement of the SALT cap, we’re going to start publishing their names.”
Yes, I’m sure creating an enemies list will encourage more profitable companies and wealthy individuals to stay in NewYork.
