Media Hit: CBS’ Eye on New York

by Benjamin Kabak

For those insomniacs and early-risers among us, I wanted to alert you to an upcoming media hit. I’ll be on CBS 2’s Eye on New York program later today to talk about the MTA and its impending fare hike. The program airs at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, and Gene Russianoff of the Straphangers Campaign and I speak with host Dana Tyler for a segment on transit. If, like me, you plan to be asleep at 6:30 a.m. this morning, I should be able to post the video later this week. Otherwise, set your DVRs and VCRs. I promise you it’s well worth it.

“Andrew Cuomo wants to maintain the status quo on the MTA Payroll Tax. Did you know if we repeal this onerous tax, taxpayers would save one-and-a-half billion dollars every year? I will start by repealing this tax burden on the suburban taxpayers who don’t benefit from the tax and who will save a good portion of that money. In my administration, I will pay for it by cleaning up the waste, fraud and abuse at the MTA to assure taxpayer money is not flushed down the MTA toilet like it is today.

MTA is a mess and I’ll reform it.”

Yeesh! Great— put MTA on Austerity —plunder more money from it —and don’t offer an alternate funding stream
🙁

Someone from South Jamaica Queens should know more about the MTA than someone from Buffalo.— At least I hope so!

I covered some of Paladino’s poor transit policies in this post last week. Needless to say, if he gets elected, the MTA is in some serious trouble.

538 projects Cuomo to win by 15. Do not worry.
