Tolls on Brooklyn, Manhattan, W'brg and 59th St. Bridges?

The MTA is going to reveal Monday just how much in the red it is -- and unnamed sources tell CBS (see video, above) that the news is grim.

Putting tolls on some or all of the East River bridges -- the Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg and 59th Street Bridge -- is part of the bailout plan being considered.

Since both the city and state are basically broke, New Yorkers are also looking at fare increases, budget cuts, tax increases, and congestion pricing. More details in the NY Times.

How about the City Council giving back all the yearly salary raises they give themselves in secret sessions (we find out in tiny newsprint hidden in the middle of the newspapers). What a crock. Bloomberg needs to go, he's not dictator for life.
