Gov. Paterson Puts same Sex marriage Above Economy
Gov. David A. Paterson plans to introduce legislation on Thursday to make marriage between same-sex couples legal in New York, advancing his push for greater rights for gay men and lesbians, at a time when New York State faces the most devastating financial crisis since the great depression.
Maybe Gov. Paterson should spend time closing budget gaps, find ways to restore vital services instead of making massive cuts, work diligently to come up with a plan to prevent another fare hike for the MTA. He should hold off on the marriage bill and suggest that same sex couples enjoy long engagements and wait until he fixes the economic crisis.
Unfortunately, Paterson wants to pander to the gay and lesbian vote because he is realizing that they may be the only ones to vote for him in 2010.
