When Christine Quinn delivered her State of the City speech, she referred to proposed health care spending cuts from Albany and Washington as “misguided.” Recently, she and the City Council met with Eliot Spitzer, the guy who proposed the cuts from Albany.
So, I asked if she stood by that characterization. She said she did and has requested more information from Sptizer about the proposal.
“Until we get more of that information, I stand by the position of having a tremendous level of concern about these cuts.”
You can listen to her full answer — which doesn’t include the word “misguided”– is here.
