Smart Move! PEF, CSEA, NYS found a politician who doesn't back down. I don't agree with a lot of what Cuomo is doing including raising retirees insurance premiums w/o bargaining. I think in lieu of layoffs, skim the fat off the top. NOT THE BOTTOM. HOW ABOUT THE WELFARE SYSTEM? IT DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE REVAMPED. DRUG TEST THESE PEOPLE LIVING OFF THE SYSTEM.
