A tough debate with Neil over extending jobless benefits… My stats are accurate!!! At the end of the day this argument comes down to the question of how would you want to be treated? There but for the grace of God go I… I would rather the economy create jobs but until it does our friends and neighbors need this aid….
I have been making the pundit rounds lately and I thought I needed a place where people can join the discussion. So here we are. My next appearances are Tuesday July 6th 1pm on the Fox Strategy Room and Wednesday July 7th 1pm same place. Here’s the link you can watch live on line… http://live.foxnews.com/strategy-room
I should be back on News 12 as soon as the state budget is passed… while we are on the subject of the state budget, Albany has been a mad house the last few months even by Albany standards. I think to the outside observer this seems like politicians who have no clue what they are doing but in fact its the exact opposite. The deadlock is deliberate and no one is innocent. The Governor and the Legislature, majority and minority all have a stake here. The governor is trying to salvage a legacy and is putting his stamp on the process. He has gained approval of a majority of the budget through the extender bills needed to keep the government operating. This will forever be known as a Paterson Process…
The legislature is up for re-election. The majority has its own vision of how the state should close the $9 billion deficit, and the minority state senators, are trying to regain a foothold in state government…. Well the pain of the state budget should be over soon and I am sure we will get a chance to re-cap….
