Spitzer, Taxes and Suozzi

So, what to expect from Eliot Spitzer’s first budget, which he’ll present tomorrow?

Soaring rhetoric, a few jabs at his predecessor and the current legislative leaders and some reiteration, presumably, of that promise to hold the line on taxes. And don’t forget the record amounts of money Spitzer is planning to send to public schools.

How is all this spending and saving possible?

One Spitzer person I spoke to said a bulk of the money will come form savings on health care costs. Is this similar to what Spitzer’s opponent, Tom Suozzi, proposed?
