New York Gov. David A. Paterson speaks during a press conference after a lunch meeting with U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in January in New York City. Paterson has proposed a tax on Internet downloads in a move that has raised eyebrows because it could apply to everything from software to pornography.
