What amazes me is that Albany is cutting back --- eliminating services via funding for education and Health Care but we are still going to pay more school taxes (property taxes) and taxes galore on health care claims...people are going to loose their jobs and health insurance..which means that more people are going to need to collect unemployment insurance and be without health care…The taxpayers of New York need to yell a little …and take back our State…New York can not sustain the “backwards government that lives and breathes in Albany….again the tax payer gets screwed……truly amazing…..!!!

I'm with you 100%.

The REAL problem is that we live in a state with a place called NYC which is filled to the hilt with Liberals. You would think that us upstate rs would out vote them but we also have our own brand of Liberals.

They complain all the time about taxes, health care and all the rest and yet they VOTE time and time and time again for Liberal Democrats like Obama, Schumer, Gillibrand, Clinton, Spitzer, Shelly Solden and the rest of thieves. Just take a look how they wanted to appoint that no nothing Kennedy for Gods sake.

It's going to take the Liberals to lose thier jobs, houses, retirement, cars, trucks, Plasmas etc until they realize that they are thier own destroyers.

When they achieve the above status, perhaps they just may STOP and THINK and NOT VOTE for a Liberal Democrat ever again. But, then again... Once they achieve this status they will not have a choice as thier only hope is a Liberal Handout.

Which comes to my final point that Liberals dont realize.

THAT is exactly what Liberal Democrats WANT!!! They WANT to Tax you to death so that you MUST VOTE for THEM in order to survive and get handouts.

Catch 22.

The school districts will cut direct services to the students and keep it's top jobs. In fact Albany is stacking it even heavier @ the top!

I can't help but notice how no one seems to care about how this is going to hurt the kids.

After all look what a lack of education has done to previous generations, you're the ones making these decisions based on the lack of knowledge on everything from politics to economics.

If you want to argue about economics then talk to the lawmakers that you and your peers elected. It's understandable that no one enjoys a rise in taxes especially when it seems uncalled for, but complaining WILL DO NOTHING.

Aren't you all supposed to be the generation that helped to change the world? If you have a problem take it to the government, stop whining.
