Apparently Cuomo believes that New York State is more equal than other States.
New York state on Wednesday asked the U.S. federal government to pay
all the costs of cleaning up and repairing damage from massive storm
Sandy that tore through the Northeast this week and crippled New York
Governor Andrew Cuomo said he is asking fellow Democrat, President
Barack Obama, to pay 100 percent of the estimated $6 billion bill, at a
time that state and local government budgets remain constrained by a
weak economic recovery.
That would be a significant change from last year when the federal
government covered about 75 percent of the $1.2 billion cost paid by New
York to clean up after storm Irene hit the region.
If the SCOAMF complies, it has to be before Inauguration Day, too.
