Native New Yorker:

Ryan getting this waiver is typical of political hacks taking care of themselves, telling the public to sit down and shut up.

This CREATED job at $190,000 plus BENEFITS each year plus a fattened upped taxpayer pension the Board of Legislators could have created three $60,000 a year medical positions in the hospital that care for people. Not a job that lets one favored person continue to wallow at the public trough.

New York's political leaders, starting with the Governor DO NOT care about the public good only what they can take from the public for their own wallets.

What a disgusting shame.

I asked Legislator Peter Harckham not to vote for the waiver, being the good "I need to get mine at a future date" ignored me, he did not even have the courage to attempt to justify his actions. His fellow traveler Mr. Gelfarb gave a typical political hack answer of saying Ryan had it coming. Gelfarb must be in for a big fat hack ton of free money or things too.
