NEW YORK The MTA is under a lot of heat lately for significant delays in the transit system. New Yorkers are simply fed up with the MTA’s ineptitude, bad management and wasteful spending habits in NYC.
It’s incredible to watch politicians admit one after another how they legislate budgets that can be moved around and with zero accountability! Politicians create their own mess and think raising taxes is the magic fix.
When WABC reporter Dave Evans challenged the Mayor saying his idea is DOA in Albany, the Mayor got all antsy. When another reporter asked a question to Mayor de Blasio about his idea sounding like a transfer of wealth, Mayor de Blasio asked the reporter for which outlet she worked for and then accused the reporter of having a policial ax to grind and an agenda.
Politicians are like diapers. They need to be changed every once in a while.
Politicians were talking about “budget gimmicks”. The ones who write these budget gimmicks are now complaining about how bad it is!
Councilman Chaim Deutsch gave an earful to the MTA at a recent city council hearing on the MTA problems. “You guys are unreliable, unresponsive, and you don’t care about anyone except for your own jobs.”
The MTA is still ignoring thousands of senior citizens who don’t have decent access to city bus service on Nostrand Ave in Brooklyn, How does the MTA and Mayor de Blasio expect anyone to get out of their vehicles and take mass transit if MTA service is so unreliable?
Watch Councilman Deutsch fight for his constituents on the SBS B44 issue in April 2015.
