The State of NY continues to betray us. The MTA says they are getting 200M less from the state than they expected, so more severe service cuts and fare hikes may be on the way. What's on the table? Eliminating bus and train service at night. NYC will no longer be the city that never sleeps. After 11pm, subways will run once an hour, and the LIRR and Metro-North will not run at all. As for LIB, who knows what could be next, $5 fares, hourly service at all times and no service nights/sundays?
Are these idiots in Albany clueless or what? They're worried about the taxes and tolls of the Ravitch Plan, yet these cuts and fare hikes will be the death knell for NYC, and we'll plunge into the 1970s once again! Have these people learned anything?
It really is time to put the FEAR OF GOD into these people. We must defend the downstate area now!
PEOPLE WILL LEAVE NY IN DROVES, INCLUDING MYSELF!
