For Andrew Cuomo, the 2013 legislative session can best be summed up in four words: all politics, no substance.
The pressing issues of jobs, economic growth and Albany's Culture of Corruption went totally unaddressed.
Much of the talk after Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's State of the State address Wednesday focused on his plans to "enact the toughest assault weapon ban in the nation, period."
If you listened closely, however, it wasn't his talk about guns in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., tragedy that those in the audience were most interested in. Instead, the greatest applause was reserved for his announcement heralding a Women's Equality Act.
