Amnesia watch: Levy's $$ whack at Pataki

In May 2003, Levy was a Democratic Assemblyman. The Legislature was at war with the governor over the budget. Levy voted for a what he called a “progressive and temporary” plan that included tax hikes, insisting higher property taxes would otherwise result.

Of Republican Gov. George Pataki, Levy said in debate: “The governor is raising taxes by billions of dollars, taxing everything that moves, taxing everything and everyone — except those who can most afford to pay.”

This year, Pataki backs Rick Lazio.
