"This has not been just about power. It was about reform. It continues to be about reform," Skelos said. " And also, we felt as a conference, that we had to do something dramatic to stop the direction that this state was going."This is the leader of the republican group that until last year controlled the New York State Senate. Reform was a dirty word and we hear was outlawed in dictionaries in the NY Senate. Now, we believe because they lost, reform is now the reason they are doing things? Give me a break. How stupid do they think we are.
Republican's spent 100+ MILLION of taxpayer’s dollars to keep themselves in power. For all those years which they controlled the chamber, why not reform then? The answer is clear...they care nothing about reform...they care about POWER.
