Congressman Charles Rangel wants Governor Eliot Spitzer to tone down his combative style.

In a meeting with state and federal leaders, Rangel suggested that the governor had anger problems, saying that "anger and emotion" won't help solve the problems of New Yorkers.

The governor has recently clashed with groups over his proposals to cut healthcare. Rangel says he isn't so much against what the governor is proposing, but rather how he's proposing it.

A spokesperson for the governor says that no amount of "distortive rhetoric" will make the governor back down from the core reforms embodied in his budget.
