The New York Budget Answer?
This article in the New York Post makes it sound like their Governor actually balanced the budget. Hard to say if they're leaving things out to make the Governor look good. I'm sure some- Mayor Bloomberg being one- are still complaining about the cuts. Is this anything similar to what's being proposed by one side or the other for California?
As an aside, I found one of the comments to the article rather funny. Looks like spam, but funny regardless, imo:
WHEN A FLY FALLS INTO A CUP OF COFFEE
The Italian - throws the cup, breaks it, and walks away in a fit of rage.
The German - carefully washes the cup, sterilizes it and makes a new cup of coffee.
The Frenchman - takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.
The Chinese - eats the fly and throws away the coffee.
The Russian - Drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.
The Israeli - sells the coffee to the Frenchman, sells the fly to the Chinese, sells the cup to the Italian, drinks a cup of tea, and uses the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.
The Palestinian - blames the Israeli for the fly falling into his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, the German and the Russian are all trying to explain to the Israeli that
he should give away his cup of tea to the Palestinian.
