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.
