Four Men, A Billion Dollars, and some Patronage Jobs in a Room

10 Jun

Tom Golisano posted a self-congratulatory, self-indulgent post at the Responsible New York blog today, and concludes with this :

One important concrete change is that with these rules reforms and coalition government all 62 senators will play a role in negotiating the next budget. That means in one fell swoop one of the infamous “three men in the room” is gone. Who’s next? Hopefully there are some members of the State Assembly who are willing to put reform above party and the people above politics.

Yeah, now there’s four men in the room, and one of them has a billion dollars in the bank. This is strictly third world stuff we’re talking about. But at least some of the comments are hilarious.
