CSEA video slamming Governor Paterson

CSEA video slamming Governor Paterson's announcement on layoffs of state employees.

'We knew David Paterson, Senator David Paterson, very well for 20 years and he was somebody who was always there with us on the issues. We frankly don’t know the individual who is in the governor’s office at this point because he has taken positions and actions that Senator David Paterson never would have done.' -- Stephen Madarasz, spokesman for CSEA union, on the governor's proposal to lay off 8900 state workers

Why has Governor Paterson increased welfare benefits? He takes from workers and gives to welfare?
The folks who receive welfare are living better then the lowest state salary employees.
Welfare should be temporary and he encourages it as a way of life. The he wants to take from people who do the work everyday.
We didn't even vote for this guy. He got in by chance. Now he is ruining people's careers but giving 30% more to welfare? This guy is a joke. He has not cut any of his office staff either. Oh they do not have to sacrifice because the governor protects them.
