I have a news flash for you Larry.
New York State's Comptroller announced that NY's 'anticipated' (read budgeted) tax receipts are below estimates while expenditures are above estimates. What a surprise, and such a nice surprise for a deep blue state that just voted 2-1 for Barhama and bigger government, plus for single party rule (Democrat) at the state level.
Life must be good in the Blue State of NY. Business must be up and unemployment must be down because the state budget is doing so great. Good luck to all those happy people who are living large with FEMA's help. Life is good.
Reality is bad.
