UNEMPLOYMENT in New York State!!!

Unemployment here in NYS is very high....they need to have a tier 5 Unemployment extension for all the so-called "99ers"....those who have exhausted all their benefits and are still unable to find jobs.

TAX ALCOHOL

As far as this tax on tobacco goes,...it is horrific and I am a non-smoker. Why don't you add taxes to alcoholic beverages? People drink and drive, kill innocent victims, have more arrests than tobacco users. Oh Wait!!! TOO MANY POLITICIANS CONSUME ALCOHOL AND WE CAN'T DIG INTO THEIR POCKETS!
