"No one knows the full ramifications of a government shutdown," said Paterson. "It would create unimaginable chaos around the state and the greater metropolitan areas."Yep, he really said that. I think he did. Or maybe it was the dude who parodies him on SNL.
The governor is in this pickle, in part, because wild cards like Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. (D-Bronx) and possibly scandal-scarred Sen. Pedro Espada (D-Bronx) might not go along.And there's more.
Paterson called both men "thugs."Is this a VXX play if there ever was one? Naaah. Probably not. Lot of talk and hot air. Nothing more.
