A News trio notes: “From health care to security and transportation, the debt ceiling deal threatens long-term pain for New York City, which stands to lose billions in federal aid. Medicare will be on the chopping block when a congressional supercommittee decides how to cut $1.5 trillion, and the fate of the city's fragile health care system hangs in the balance. If Congress doesn't approve the committee's plans, an automatic 2%, $119 billion nationwide Medicare cut will kick in.”

Blau & Alpert report: “The city's new system of giving restaurants letter grades for cleanliness has been such a hit it should be expanded to food-cart vendors, Mayor Bloomberg said Monday.”

Mike Jaccarino notes: “A state pol is catching heat for what Brooklyn residents say is a flippant attitude displayed toward a little girl mowed down by an out-of-control SUV Sunday. State Assemblyman William Boyland (D-Brooklyn) drove past a prayer vigil for Kira Goddard, 13, Sunday night, honked his car horn, and waved toward mourners without stopping and paying respect.”
