NY bishops push for education tax credit

Catholic World News - June 13, 2014

Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the other bishops of New York are urging Catholics to contact Gov. Andrew Cuomo and ask him to support education tax-credit legislation.

“Although Governor Cuomo assured us he would fight to include the proposal in the state budget, in the end, we were left out,” stated a bulletin insert from the New York Catholic Conference.

“As the legislative session ends in Albany this coming week, we pray that Governor Cuomo won’t let us down,” the insert continued. “Pray that Governor Cuomo will put children ahead of politics and fight for the Education Investment Tax Credit. We also ask that you contact him immediately with that same message.”

    Hasn't the cardinal dealt with the governor before and enough to know better?

    I expect that New York Catholics may be too busy with all the other political causes that the USCCB wants them involved in to have the time to worry about silly matters like the education of their children. There's just too many trees to hug, too many illegal aliens (remember that phrase?) to shield from the border patrol to keep safe on their journey toward undocumented democrat status. What to do, what to do?
