    This could be very interesting, because in the long run, the state government has the ultimate power…

      de Blasio can always do as Nero does, burn the city and dare Cuomo to do anything about it. That might actually be his plan as his current war against the golden goose (Wall Street) goes. Wall Street and its support structure pays a significantly disportionately large part of New York City’s revenue. He’s going out of his way to fried that.

    let him rage…the financial sector will move elsewhere and NYC will implode. Good tiems

      The financial sector never seems to quite make that move.

        And why would they? Ain’t a capitalist left on Wall Street, just a bunch of Harvard/Yale men wearing 10K suits but they all still have their Che t-shirt in their closet if you know what I mean.

    Boy, we’re in real trouble if you think this is a fight between the democrat moderates and liberals – try a fight between the extreme, extreme left of the democratic party and howling barbarian left of the democratic party.

    Its one of many fights to come between those who want to maximize the quantity and quality of services a state provides while minimizing the administrative costs of providing them, and those who only want to maximize the privileges of the administrative class (which limits the amount of money that can be spent on actual services), while wrapping themselves in the mantle of good intentions.

    They have all started to wake up to the fact that there is a limited pot of money.

    In office just a few months after a landslide victory, de Blasio’s unfavorable rating is already 57 percent according to Marist poll released today….39 percent favorable..
