    This was a good statement, although it did not include the impact that laying off public employees would have in this economy, with this unemployment. What upsets me is that where was CA during the campaign. Mr Cuomo is not saying anything different now than he did in his ads and statements then. He ran as a fiscal Republican and that is what we are getting. That’s why I went 3rd party and voted for Mr Barron and the Freedom Party slate. We have to wake up and stop supporting people just because they have a (D) after their names.
