i was asking about NET money going upstate; money leaving downstate to support the failed upstate!
as for the water we bought that water a 100 years ago because we planned for the future.

That's Hilarious!

The failed viral campaign for "I'm going to take COMP-trol of Albany"-- that's great stuff. Two thumbs up, Brian &c.

Although the comptroller is not a policy-maker -- isn't it true that the pension system set up -- unsustainable? Isn't it true that for future employees you'll need to implement a tier 6,7, 8 etc....

Government can't do anything unless the pension bomb is defused. What's the comptroller's take on this?
