NY rallying cry: No taxation without transportation

State senator John Bonacic is stirring populist ire against the MTA payroll tax.

"The MTA is virtually useless to the overwhelming number of Orange County residents, and the MTA tax amounts to taxation without transportation," said Bonacic, whose represents towns in Delaware, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties. "The tax needs to go away, not simply be reduced."
