Ravitch: 'Not a good time to cut taxes'

Posted by Matt Ryan on



Forrest Gump may be envious of some of the historic moments Richard Ravitch has found himself in over the years.  

The New York City native was at the March of Washington, helped New York City stave off a financial meltdown in the 1970's, represented the owners in the 1994 Major League Baseball strike that led to the only canceled Word Series and was named Lieutenant Governor by David Paterson in 2009 in one of the the most tumultuous times in state history. 

Ravitch is out promoting his book "So Much to Do" and sits down with us to discuss these pivotal moments in our history and gives his feelings on how Andrew Cuomo is dealing with New York's fiscal problems.
