From Friday’s morning Joe, NY Governor David Patterson tells Mika, first no soda tax (which he had proposed earlier) and no millionaire’s tax either. “What we’ve found is that they just aren’t millionaires anymore, or they have left the state.”

Exit question: Would there be an uproar if a male held the Senate seat before, and Paterson stated that he thought it was important to select a male candidate?
