"Boss Silver whacks taxpayers"

New York Daily News editorial comes down hard on Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver for his maneuverings (mentioned a few days back) to derail a bill that would curb "double-dipping" in injury claims by public employees. "Because of a quirk in state law, injured public workers can sue for wages and medical costs even when, thanks to full health insurance coverage and generous disability benefits, they haven't lost a dime of either," the News says. Henry Stern's readers at NYCivic "StarBlog" also comment.
