    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.

      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."
