Sen. Jeff Klein’s comment on Paterson


State Sen. Jeff Klein, D-Bronx, who also represents parts of Yonkers, Mount Vernon and several other communities in Westchester, issued a statement earlier today about the troubles facing Gov. David Paterson.

“It is unfortunate that at a time when our state is in the midst of a severe economic crisis and we need to direct our energy to putting New York’s fiscal house in order, we are embroiled in chatter about who will or will not be on the ballot nine months from now. We need to keep our eye on the ball. I’m focused on the budget and finding ways in which we can better protect the people’s money, put more tax dollars back in people’s pockets and restore the financial health of our state. Political conversations can be had after we’ve met our obligations and responsibilities to New Yorkers.”

  2. He says, “I’m focused on finding ways to…put more tax dollars into people’s pockets.” Which people? Where? He and his party are intent on RAISING TAXES, not cutting them. They discuss this daily, and in fact, have no choice after effectively bankrupting this state. They will try to shove as much of it as they can onto local government, hoping most the blame goes elsewhere while they pose as fiscal pragmatists. They should all be tried for unrepentant perjury as well as malfeasance.
