REPEAT: “I’m quite pleased with what I see so far.” HIS CHOICE OF WORDS NOT MINE.
Gov. David A. Paterson on Wednesday said for the first time that he supported a financial rescue plan for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority that includes charging tolls on bridges over the East River and Harlem River. The plan, the governor said, would substantially reduce the size of a fare increase the authority had sought.
The governor also spoke favorably about a recommendation in the plan for a tax on company payrolls in the region. The measures are aimed at helping the authority overcome a $1.2 billion deficit next year and a gaping multibillion-dollar hole in its long-term capital budget.The governor said that he was still reviewing the plan, but added, “I’m quite pleased with what I see so far.”
WHAT DOES HE SEE? SIMPLE:
A RAISE IN TOLLS. A RAISE IN FARES. AND A RAISE IN TAXES.
NO WONDER HE'S PLEASED: IT'S A FRIGGIN' LIBERAL WET TRIFECTA DREAM!
