Wonder what they’ll cut first. Surveillance society and big brother, or important infrastructure like bridges, roads and transportation.
No sympathy for the rich Socialist
Instead of trying to take guns away from all Americans... and Big Gulps away from New Yorkers.... he could have been addressing the union and municipal employee issues
How this Socialist got rich....is mind boggling

Bloomberg points to public service unions as being among the biggest roadblocks to any meaningful fiscal health in the city.
The unions are the second biggest roadblocks. The first biggest are the politicians themselves.

“The pension system itself provides defined benefits that cant be reduced under guarantees the Legislature has placed in the state constitution.”
Well....the state constitution is an “evolving document”, right liberals?

In a twist of irony, Big Government Bloomberg has admitted that NYC is at the edge of a fiscal precipice.
NYC has a fiscal crisis every other year. It gets kicked down the road, the politicians pat themselves on the back for fixing the problem, a couple years later NYC has yet another fiscal crisis. Repeat. This has been going on for decades.

I suppose it would be unseemly to hop, in place, from foot to foot, while chanting “nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah.”

Good. Watching smug new yorkers flounder is entertainment. Bloomie should pitch in a few billion of his own cash.

Legalization (and heavy taxation) of drugs, gambling and prostitution is the only way that the city and state can be saved!

NYC union pensions and benefits have just killed my husband’s job. Union employees also feel no need to actually do their jobs; they drink and backtalk their employers and bring frivolous law suits. They are part and parcel of what is killing America.

I can't imagine having the hubris to tell my boss I need a raise ... retroactive to 2008. They are waiting for the next mayor to make them all lottery winners.

Was it Bloomberg, or that idiot governor who served between Spitzer and Cuomo who pretty much said “Good Riddance to Rush Limbaugh and his tax dollars?”
