New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo are arguing like a couple of kids on the playground, and I'm loving it. We could use a little more — actually a lot more — of this kind of fight here in Arizona.
Here's kind of what they said. I may have altered the language a bit.
de Blasio: I don’t care what you say, I’m gonna tax the rich to raise enough money so every kid can go to pre-K classes.
Cuomo: Oh yeah? Well, I’m not gonna let you tax people. I’m gonna give you $1.5 billion to pay for it.
de Blasio: Cheapskate! I need more money than that. I’m still gonna tax all those people who make the most money so little kids can go to school.
Cuomo: Oh no you’re not! I’m gonna give you and everyone in the state as much money as it takes. So there!
de Blasio: Yeah, well, I don’t know . . .
Boys, boys, boys, please don’t fight. You’re both right. Let’s go inside and have some milk and cookies. I’m sure we can work this out.
