Wacky Pataki

Governor George Pataki, proud recipient of the coveted UFT endorsement, has just destroyed 200,000 rebate checks scheduled to be mailed to NY taxpayers. That's because they didn't give him credit for the program. Perhaps that's because he fought tooth and nail against it, and only signed it when it was pointed out his veto was going to be overridden.

So now our tax dollars will reprint those checks, so that the gov can boast about his great compassion for working people. The practice of issuing rebate checks just before elections is reprehensible, and it's very sad we put up with such blatant nonsense.

Multi-millionaires like Pataki and Bloomberg are certainly free to buy our votes. But we shouldn't allow them to do it with our own money.
