    Wait-Just-A-Minute-Buster … Doesn’t the State of New York have a budget, and a process to collect (tax) revenues and another process to determine how to disburse State funds?

    If Petty-Tyrant Cuomo is bypassing the official processes of the NY State Legislature, he should be required to use his OWN DAMN MONEY to fund these additional costs that he, himself, alone, with absolutely no authorization from anybody, is declaring that he’s going to pay out to workers. [Really: HOW can he play Robbin’ Hood with State money???]
