The failure by the bipartisan "super committee" to reach a deficit reduction deal in Washington will mean more financial troubles for New York State.  

The state receives about $40 billion a year from the federal government.   But with the failed deal, the state will lose  about $5 billion over ten years.   On Tuesday's Capitol Pressroom on WBFO, host Susan Arbetter asked Governor Andrew Cuomo about how the state will be dealing with the projected losses.
