Cuomo Brags About Laying Off 15,000

Little Andy plans on laying off 15,000 state workers and causing thousands more layoffs when he cuts state education aid.

He's been touring the state bragging about these plans.

Today he says that this most be done even though many people will be hurt.

And why must this be done?

Because taxes on individuals making more than $200,000 a year must not be raised. Taxes on hedge fund managers making $1 billion a year or more must not be raised.

So instead, stark budget cuts, 15,000 state workers laid off, and thousands of additional layoffs in education.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bloomberg starts talking about 10,000-15,000 layoffs come June after Cuomo announces state aid cuts.

That of course would cripple the system.

But perhaps that's the point.

These neo-liberals want everything privatized.

Now they're making that happen.

In America these days, we have a choice between neo-liberal Ayn Randies masking themselves as Democrats and neo-conservative Ayn Randies calling themselves Republicans.

And either way, the bankers and hedge fundies win and everybody else loses.
