The problem is not personal for Cuomo who has several residences, neither of which were impacted by the storm. In this morning's press conference, he stated that he is lifting the tax truckers must pay, in order to expedite the movement of fuel. He admitted that he did not like lifting the tax because the state needs the revenue.
We need to shrink government!
Cuomo.....the most underqualified person to hold office since zero.
Could not manage HUD.
Thank God he has Sandra Lee (SARC)...
Got on line this morning at 6 am; station started fueling at 10. Waited for an hour (on top of the 4); cops all over the station.
Northeast NJ is a mess.
Just imagine had this been a Cat 3 or even a 2?
Yet this is what Obama plans for us if he is re-elected: forcing us into city centers. Isn't that what Agenda 21 is all about?
Holy moly! This is the first I’ve seen it said that the gas crisis is mainly due to the Coast Guard closing the harbor!
Did Obie order that? It was the Coast Guard that managed to make the Gulf oil spill ten times worse than it was, too.
Sure, there are risks of flotsam and jetsam. But that’s what ship captains and their crews are trained for. You just take it slow and watch out for junk. And the Coast Guard organizes the cleanup. Or, better yet, just gets out of the way and lets people do it who know what the hell they are doing.
This is just a preview of what gas prices and lines will be like should Obama win a second term.
Really ya Dewfus?
You gave us the Housing Crisis - Banking Collapse of 08' according to the "Village Voice" and you still can't see when the Defecate will hit the Rotary Oscillator?
And he thinks he is Presidental Material?
Good G-D almighty these Democrats are Delusional...
sounds like a great time to host a marathon. Speak up Gov. Cuomo!
“Soon” can mean anything to anyone.
To an archeologist, it can means 10,000 years!!!
Then perhaps he should talk to Gov. Perry of Texas who understands staging relief aid just outside the expected devestation zone. Tanker trucks of fuel, semi trucks of food and supplies, dump trucks for hauling trash and debris, the national guard to render aid would have been a good start. He had ample warning that New York was going to get hit hard.
It isn’t as if people didn’t have time to prepare! Why would a person leave their boat in the water and their car parked where it could be flooded?
