Only In New York

Hiram Monserrate, the indicted Democratic Queens Senator, wants to beat (not his girlfriend this time) bedbugs by labeling mattresses new or used.

Read here

And a statement from Democratic Senator Craig Johnson on the MTA bailout plan the requires the state taxpayers to fork over $60 million and increase it accordingly year after year to reimburse schools for the payroll tax increase they passed as part of the plan.
Asked where the money might come from, especially given the state's current fiscal woes, Johnson replied: "It's the obligation of the governor and of other interested parties to come up with the money to protect the school districts."
Ahh, don't worry about where the money is coming from that is a problem someone else can solve. This must be the same mentality they use when passing the state budget and with leaders like Johnson, do not wonder any longer why New York State is in trouble.
