Governor Paterson on how the State Senate doesn't want to head to Albany for a special session to deal with issues like the budget and gay marriage: "I'm getting some push back about even being allowed to speak before my colleagues. Now if this was Bosnia or in the middle of Tehran, maybe I would understand why this is happening, but this is New York State and the United States of America." This is how the Daily News explains it, "Senate Democrats don't want to return to Albany if there is no budget deal. And if there is a deal, there is no reason for Paterson to address lawmakers, the aide said." Jeez, can they do their jobs already and figure out the budget?
