    Seriously. I lost my job due to Albany problems. I see how it is. Every last friggin' person in this state is complaining about high taxes and they keep saying "Blargh public workers are the problem blargh unions blargh lazy government workers blargh cut payrolls state government is bloated!"

    New Yorkers voted for this mess and we'll see what austerity will bring to the Empire State.

    Of the two realistic choices, I know it would be certain that everything would be cut.

      Cuomo didn't run on layoffs though. Both him and paladino didn't want to tax the rich so we had no choice on that, but NY voted against these draconian cuts but got betrayed.

      •  Which is true, he didn't say layoffs (2+ / 0-)

        But as the state's deficit was a big issue, it was known that it would almost certainly entail budget cuts and job losses. That's the exact same thing that happens in virtually every municipality upstate. It's all about cutting government workforce, and throwing more people into unemployment, presumably to "cut taxes."
