1.01.10 The Age Of Accountability......
How about the Age of Zombulation????
Governor David Paterson said Tuesday that the days of profligate spending in Albany are over and that starting immediately lawmakers must participate in an "age of accountability."
That said, the governor's new budget has $1 billion in new taxes and nearly $800 million in cuts for New York City.
The words certainly sounded good.
"Our revenues have crumbled and our budget has crashed and we can no longer afford this spending addiction that we have had for so long," Paterson said.
THE GOV IS EITHER GOING TO HAVE TO RAISE TAXES A LOT MORE THAN A BILLION OR MAKE MUCH LARGER CUTS BEFORE HE EVEN COMES CLOSE TO A BALANCED BUDGET.
