So.... the town is going bankrupt .... so whose fault is it?

We've all read the horror stories of the overpaid mayors, cops and firemen out in California -- and the towns going bankrupt because of them.  But we shook it off - after all, it's the Left Coast -- what else can you expect?

But now comes some reporting about the East Coast -- the little town of Ramapo (Population 125K) in South East NY, just off the New York State Thruway --  has a Chief of Police whose total salary last year was $321,719!!  American dollars.  American Tax Payer Dollars.

As a matter of record, New York's 20 highest-paid local-government employees -- mostly police officers and brass outside of the city of New York all brought home at least $245,000 last year! (NYC Commissioner Kelly with 35,000 cops only gets $205K per year)

Between these exorbitant salaries, the accompanying retirement costs, Governor Cuomo (yeah that Cuomo dynasty) says "The cost of our public-employee work force in unsustainable."  

But in the next breath, when it was pointed out that repeal of a State Law providing for automatic public payroll raises would solve the problem - the same Cuomo (yeah that Cuomo dynasty) allowed as that is a "political non-starter' because of union contributions to the State legislature.....

What is it they say on Twitter or Tweeter>    YFIO!!!!

Now, about those teacher's unions, fire fighter's unions ...... oh never mind --- A magic genie will appear............ NOT!
