Bloomberg explains how screwed we are
And from the Daily News:
Candidates hoping to replace Mayor Bloomberg in November are offering their initial comment on his budget, and needless to say the reviews are not glowing.
City Comptroller Bill Thompson was first out of the gate with a statement saying the mayor is trying to "balance the budget on the backs of working people."
Rep. Anthony Weiner hit our inbox moments later with a more measured response along the same lines, saying "it's generally a bad idea to raise taxes on the middle class."
