— Gov. Andrew Cuomo will take his sky-high popularity into his third year with an agenda to ban assault rifles, raise the minimum wage, revive the still-slow economic recovery, and far more.

Cuomo's State of the State address Wednesday afternoon in Albany will set the stage for much of this year's legislative agenda, although the Senate and Assembly majorities are deeply divided on issues.

Cuomo's other priorities will include his effort to legalize casinos off Indian land to boost jobs and tax revenues and another to restrict the New York City Police Department's stop-and-frisk procedures that critics say impinge on civil rights.

Governors also traditionally use the State of State to launch a big surprise proposal, which the Democrat is closely guarding

If this hypocrite is so concerned about saving the lives and protecting children then why doesn't he and his Liberal buds put a stop to abortions in the US. A few facts if you will; Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, there has been more than 45 million unborn children aborted in the US which sees 1.5 million of these procedures conducted and embraced with open arms by the Left annually. There have been more unborn children murdered at the hands of the Left through abortion than has seen any other American's killed in any war, auto accident, terrorist attacks, homicides at the hand of our fellow American's which includes the use of firearms, suicides, and other forms of mysterious deaths since this nation was founded more than 236 years ago. If Andrew is such a good Catholic, then why does he allow himself to be duped by an intellectually inferior argument and ideology? If you can answer this one please let me know because Andrew is claimed to be the most intelligent and compassionate Governor that NYS has ever had. Well my dear Liberal friends to you Andrew wears a large "S" in the middle of his chest which signifies to the Left that he is Superman, but to the people of NYS who see the Left for the Pius phonies that they all are, Andrew should be wearing the letters "SLH" which stands for Super Liberal Hypocrite. I think it fits him like a glove fits a hand.
