Cuomo must get a grip on reality

College degrees for criminals? Will this ridiculous proposal or any other fanatical legislation like the SAFE Act or extended pre-K do anything to attract business and bring jobs to New York? What a slap in the face to the hard-working, responsible students and graduates who are making the right choices in life, struggling under the worst educational debt in history and are sadly being forced to leave this state in droves because there are no jobs.

The Cuomo administration needs to get a grip on reality. Stop with the divisive, controversial and meaningless measures that do nothing to improve life for the taxpayers who have to endure this nonsense. As far as I’m concerned, prisoners already have their degrees – first, second, third and fourth. The people who really need education are our legislators.
