Comrie Responds to State of the Union Address

NEW YORK, NY- Council Member Leroy Comrie (D-Queens) issued the following statement today regarding President Bush's final State of the Union address delivery last night:

"In watching the President's final State of the Union address last night, my first thought was- to paraphrase a popular saying -at long last our national nightmare is nearly over. This President offered very little in terms of a vision to bring our nation from the brink of a recession and to adequately address the mortgage foreclosure crisis.

My Contribution to the Suozzi Commission

It seems that, perhaps because my teenage kids spend too much time on the phone, no one called to ask that I serve on the Suozzi Commission on high property taxes. No matter. Rather than stand on ceremony, I’ll just make my contribution here on Room Eight. Those on the Commission are encouraged to download the spreadsheets attached to the posts linked here. What the data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows is the opposite of what people in the portion of New York State outside New York City insist on believing, and their elected officials insist on telling them. Property taxes are high in the rest of the state because spending is high, not because New York City has such a wonderful deal. Spending in the suburbs and upstate is high in particular categories, not in all categories, for reasons that are not unfamiliar in New York City. Spending in those categories benefits powerful interests with an outsized and unchallenged sense of entitlement. And spending in those categories is increased by one set of elected officials, who get credit, but funded by another set of elected officials, who get the blame. High staffing levels, particularly in the public schools, may also be a response to weaknesses elsewhere in the economy, as it was in New York City under Mayor John Lindsay. But whereas economic problems in New York City led to a growth in the welfare rolls, economic problems elsewhere have led to an increase of more than 100,000 local government jobs since 1990, jobs that have pensions and unfunded retiree health care attached to them.
