Naal Says "Ho Dial" Ta N.Y.AM ~ New York City is at the brink of bankruptcy and has asked the federal government for assistance to avoid defaulting on its debts. "My reaction is no deal," said Fifth District Congressman Steve Neal in a news release received here. "I do not want to punish the people of New York City for their mistakes in the past," Neal said. "But, even more, I do not want to punish the people of the Fifth District by using their tax money to bail out New York City." Neal said he regrets that New York City faces financial disaster, but he does not believe the federal government should rush to its aid. "There's too great a chance that New York 'wouldn't correct its errant fiscal ways, and that we'd go on helping it and every other municipality that doesn't spend its money wisely."
