Keep giving $4 billion a year to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. That's the kind of "democracy" Obama loves.

More borrowing? No wonder Moody's and the State Comptroller both issued warnings. McCarthy and his rubber stamps burned through the surplus and cannot make more than minimum payments on existing bonds. Federal Block Grants should be used to remove these eyesores that are in every neighborhood in the City because of confiscatory Democratic taxation.

What about the many retirees and those on fixed income Renae? No one can afford just another increase. Just another $276 on top of a 6% Countywide property tax increase? Try consolidating the superintendents down to one per County. It works in Florida and would save millions in Schenectady County alone.

Funny to hear this criticism of Saratoga County which actually has booming retail and sales tax increases. Maybe one of them could could take over failed, nontransparent Metroplex?

Devastating to the few remaining businesses down there. Another planning nightmare that could only happen in Schenectady.

What a joke. 700 homes seized because of confiscatory City taxation. A year later they sell only five for under $100,000 total. Keep reelecting these Democratic fiscal incompetents. No one will complain when Mayor McCarthy seizes your property.

Maybe they will start reporting on local news?

The sales tax is the most regressive tax hitting the poor the hardest. Using income tax is a great idea that deserves further consideration. All residents including renters should have skin in the game. The current system is not sustainable.

It's pretty bad when the only support you can get is from your wife. Another overpaid local plutocrat. No shortage of those around here.

Highest spending for the worst results. NYS schools need to stop unnecessary noneducational programs and go to the Florida one superintendent per county system. In Schenectady County alone that would save $20 million a year.
