2008_11_pater11.jpgAfter Governor Paterson made it clear he may cut billions from Medicaid and schools, the critics came out. Teachers union head Randi Weingarten tells the Post, "Core public services such as education and programs for the most vulnerable in our society must be maintained," and the Greater New York Health Association's Kenneth Raske says to the Times, "We will fight in an animated and energetic way if somehow health care is being targeted, because lives are at stake here." Well, Paterson will unveil $2 billion in cuts tomorrow morning; his office released a statement saying, "This proposal, as well as our executive budget in December, will include reductions across virtually every area of state spending. Given the magnitude of this crisis, the only way we are going to be able to get New York's fiscal house in order is through shared sacrifice."
