Just like Mark Williams said yesterday on 590 AM... the Spitz spends dough like a drunken Kennedy... he's a junkie.

Instead of raising fees and driving the tax base away the best alternative would be to remove the impediments from the previous Administration. Specifically there are literally Billions of Dollars in fiscal recovery of bogus Medicaid claims paid to ineligible persons. Lets get rid of those responsible for this nonsense and start to recover bogus NY Medicaid claims. Have we forgotten about the recovery of Medicaid fraud mentioned in the Governor's first State of the State Message so soon? It's hardly a difficult task, we know where the fraud is!
