Cuomo and Nassau: unhappy together?

The fates of Andrew Cuomo and Nassau County are intertwined, fiscal conservative E.J. McMahon of the Manhattan Institute argues in this op-ed in the NY Post.

Much of it will not be new to readers, and one direct solution favored by McMahon comes from the bash-the-unions (workers) school.

He writes: "...rather than waiting for more crises to pop up elsewhere, the new governor should seek legislation empowering all local governments and school districts to freeze employee wages for a period of up to three years. "
He also suggests that the Nassau Interim Finance Authority might want to invoke its emergency powers_for similar ends.
"By invoking a control period sooner rather than later, the seven-member NIFA board could stop the bleeding by freezing county wages," he writes.
