    Schumer is so lazy. I really get admonishing NYS to help clear the path for new tunnels, but even I have to agree with Cuomo that it’s not NYS’s job to pay New Jersey’s and Amtrak’s bills. Anything the PA offers is 50% ours anyway, which should suffice as a New York State contribution.

    As far as we’re concerned, we have better in-state projects to worry about.
