About a month ago child ish behavior wrote a post about NY's Governor Patterson, asking if he were nuts, trying to raise taxes on soda while 70% of the people were against it.
Anyway, Patterson has been whining and crying about how much money the State needs, and what does he do? He raises his staff's pay by 17%!!!!!
Yup...when the state is losing money, he uses tax dollars to pay his staff more money. WHo the heck gets a 17% raise anyhow? 17%? At a time that unemployment is at a high, and NY is borrowing a crazy load of money from the Federal government, he RAISES his staffs pay. WHAT AN IDIOT! It's no wonder his approval ratings are going down...
WTH governor Patterson, WTH?
