MTA Blues

Well, doomsday is inching just a little bit closer.

M.T.A. Increases Fares and Cuts Services

Unless the state legislature steps up and funnels in about a billion and a half dollars, New York City commuters will get hammered with brutal fare hikes and service cuts starting June 1st. I'm guardedly optimistic that the state senate and assembly will come through on this before then, if for no other reason than it'll be political suicide for them not to do so.

That said, I really, really, really wish the city government ran the MTA and not the state. Our city is far too dependent on Albany, even though it's our tax dollars that basically keep the state float.

NYC needs a DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE from Albany! No more should pesky and creepy state legislators run the greatest cit in the world! Let New Yorkers rule themselves 100%!
