Oh the horror

New York city may have to shut down because they are broke and the Republicans want.



Sources said the next emergency bill from Paterson will have up to $350 million in cuts to human services and mental health. But Republicans, who could become Paterson's new allies in the budget battle, aren't satisfied with that.

They want $750 million in new cuts like:

  • Delaying the 10 percent welfare grant increases
  • Withholding welfare from those who don't comply with employment requirements
  • Reducing the personal needs allowance of people in drug and alcohol programs

Diaz will not go along with that.
