    NY's Governor Andy Cuomo.

    My understanding is he is about to announce a plan to scale back the budget destroying pension system in NY, making worker contribute more, raise eligibility age and less able to rig their last year to boost their income.

    Credit Where Due!

    interesting. because i hear that about a lot of people... and there are certainly a fair share of corrupt people. but a) ny doesn't have any greater share of that than anywhere else. and b) i've never heard it about andy cuomo.

    so i'm wondering where you "heard" it.

    Any Dimocrat who does what's being credited to Cuomo here is a Democrat in my book.

    Good for Andy if he can accomplish even some of these things.

    Ditto big time.

    Any politician in either party who takes the bull by the horns and tried to straighen out the Union mess in their State gets kudo's from me.

    According to the article, Cuomo is 'mulling' some changes that are merely tinkering around the edges. The changes he is 'thinking about' would only affect new hires since the unions will stop him cold if he tries anything else.

    This is the answer,and NO Governor, R or D has the stones to do it!
