ALBANY - The Senate Democrats may not believe Gov. Paterson's claim the state is running out of money, but the public does.

 

A Marist Colelge poll shows that by a 69-31% margin, New York voters are worried or very worried that the state may run out of money next month.

 

The concern crosses party, regional, and gender lines.

 

Paterson has warned that without immediate legislative action, the state will be unable to pay all its bills next month.

and their denial will come with a heavy price with a good chance the GOP taking control of both the Governor's Mansion and the state captial in albany, next nov. as well.

 

also several other states around the country are also in bad shape with their budget as well including Calif.. gov. arnold's popularity with voters is already down to only 30-40% now compared to his high of 80% when he took office.

Then it would get even worse. Expect spending cutbacks (many of which will come out of NYC), but corporate tax cutbacks that will increase business profits while offsetting any potential savings from the spending cutbacks.

 

Neither party gets it at the moment.

How to solve the NYS Budget crisis from an average Joe:

Cut all welfare and medical benefits to all people who aren't US citizens

Pass gas guzzler taxes

Raise taxes on the rich (who aren't suffering at all from what I see in East Hills)

Cut legislative pay to $20,000/yr. Most of these ppl are lawyers and shouldn't even get a govt salary

 

This state is going down the tubes because no one gets it. Unless an average joe takes a military coup of Albany....

What about permanent residents that are here legally and pay taxes just like any citizen? Not all immigrants are here illegally.

well said. both parties think this is still the 1990's and early 2000's when our country is in middle of worst recession since arguably the great depression of the 1930's. imo part of the blame why our economy is in the tank right now, goes to some of the american public who re-elect the same people over & over again from both sides. that why i wish a strong 3rd party existed. :confused:

 

not so much in new york yet but i seen on tv news in poorer states the recession already taking a toll besides lost jobs. some of the worst includes, public schools canning high school sports/music programs, state colleges closing & or raising tutions to prices almost the same as private colleges and hosptials closing. if the folks in albany dont watch it, nys is next.

As much as you don't like it, those kids are as much as American as you are.

 

true they didnt ask to be born here. If Patterson and the rest of albany were serious and really feared the atate would run out of money why dont they cut their own budgets and slush funds. Including all the monies they recieve from the lobbyists

You want to fix things? It's really, really easy to get a head start.

 

New law: Corporations cannot pay to lobby lawmakers. It is treated as a bribe. Only individuals may contribute campaign contributions..no corporations/partnerships/firms/etc. which remain excluded from tax deductions as they are today.

 

REALLY simple to do...sadly do you think the lawmakers receiving that money would do it? Nope. But it would start paving the way to fix a lot of things...
